West Pokot Governor Prof. John Lonyangapuo has been axed as the Chairman of the Kabarak University Governing Council.
In a Memo data 17th September, the Vice Chancellor Prof. Henry Kiplangat said Lonyangapuo has been replaced by Dr. John Kibosia.
Dr. Kibosia was serving as the Vice Chair of the Governing Council.
“The Board of Trustees also expressed gratitude to the outgoing Chairman for Governing Council H.E Governor Prof. John Lonyangapuo for his dedicated service to the University for the thirteen years he served with dedication,” read the memo.
The move is seen as part of Senator Gideon Moi’s plan to punish Lonyangapuo who has since withdrawn his political support for him.
The West Pokot Governor has in the recent past been at loggerheads with the KANU party leadership and is seen as leaning towards Deputy President William Ruto.
