University education must be reformed

By Ochieng Odongo | January 27th 2016

The tug of war between some universities and the Commission for University Education (CUE) serves as a pointer to the probability that our higher education needs urgent reforms and streamlining.

This will ensure that the institutions align themselves to meet their core mandates of training and releasing into the job market a quality labour force.

The commission is mandated by law to ensure all universities in the country meet the requisite requirements to offer various courses and should not only be driven by commercial interest.

As such it has an obligation to ensure that all universities comply with all requirements laid down so that the students do not get a raw deal.

It is therefore disheartening to see the ugly confrontation between universities which have been threatened with closure and CUE.
