How Government Position Cost Matiang’i His Job

From 2006-2012 he served as chief of party for the CID’s Kenya Parliamentary Strengthening Programme.

It was an engagement with this programme that spelt troubles for him with the university’s administration.

A letter from UoN on November 23, 2009 accused him of absconding duty for nearly five months.

“It has been decided that your service in the University be terminated forthwith” Prof Peter Mbithi, then the Deputy Vice Chancellor in charge of finance and administration and now Vice Chancellor wrote.

The decision was a culmination of a series of warnings to return to work after he initially asked for unpaid leave of absence in 2004.

At the time, he was on a two-year unpaid leave from May 2004 to take up an appointment with United States Aid (USaid) and the State University of New York in Nairobi.

In April 2006 he requested for a further two-year leave extension until April 30, 2008.

When this date reached, he requested and was granted a year’s extension which ended in June 30, 2009.

However, he did not resume duty despite reminders prompting the university to take action.
