In Kenya, the Universities Academic Staff Union has taken the vice-chancellors of two universities to court over cuts in lecturers’ salaries, which had been previously suspended by a judge.

On 8 July, the Employment and Labour Relations Court in Nairobi, Kenya, will hear the details of a case brought by the Universities Academic Staff Union (UASU) against the vice-chancellors (VCs) of two public universities in Egerton and Kisii. The universities have severely reduced the salaries of 877 lecturers, giving funding difficulties as justification for the cuts.
