Churchill has come out harshly defending the outgoing K.U Vice Chancellor Olive Mugenda against a comment made by his colleague, Caroline Mutoko.
In a post Mutoko had blasted Mugenda’s achievements saying she was minding about building structures in Kenyatta University at the expensive of enhancing education and research which she said is the core activity of any learning institution.
Mutoko said Mugenda had done nothing of real worth to earn all the acclaim and praise she was receiving from certain quarters.
“KU is an educational institution and its chief trade should be on education, not building Uni-cities, buying hotels at the coast and starting secular TV stations for the sake of making money. KU is offering everything including agriculture yet it does not have any land under agriculture. Aren’t we wasting our sons and daughters?,” Mutoko wrote.
Churchill who is an old student of K.U seemed to differ with Mutoko’s opinion. Churchill celebrated Mugenda’s achievements and said she has really transformed K.U.
“Wale mnasema Mugenda hakufanya kitu KU you don’t know. Apply basi mwende mkafanye hiyo hakufanya. Those speaking never visited KU when it was a Shamba la Wanyama (animal farm). Today it is a world class university thanks to Mugenda,” Churchill said.
