Professor Peter Mulwa Felix Mbithi was appointed the new Vice-Chancellor of the University of Nairobi (UoN) in January 6th 2015 for a five-year term renewable once.
His fate for a second term was supposed to be decided yesterday (Wednesday, 26th, June, 2019) by the council at the UoN. But that has not yet come to pass.
The decision has not yet come to pass.
But in a country as corrupt as Kenya, he might as well get one because he has proved himself useful in the council of corrupt Kenyans that ‘will not hesitate to sell their mothers for a mess of pottage’.
This Vice Chancellor should have performed better but instead, standards at the UoN has deteriorated since he took over power from the current Education Cabinet Secretary (CS) George Magoha.
This site has covered the corruption story of Peter M.F. Mbithi as shown here below:
The first one is this, an anonymous letter from a student at the UON calling for Education CS George Magoha to save the institution.
‘The future of the university you love so much is sooty. Magoha, your predecessor is micromanaging our university. I read your book and watched videos of you handing over power to him and I saw that you were convinced he was the best option. I have talked to many professors in my department. They too were convinced he was the best. He speaks good English. I must admit. But that’s it. Professor, the university does not value knowledge these days; it is easy today to get a venue for entertainment purposes than to get one for a public lecture or debate.’ the letter stated.

Mbithi, then the Deputy Vice Councillor for finance and administration signed off KShs. 10 million to be used to furnish his residential house along Mandera Road. Mbithi approved the budget on December 19 2014 on a letter signed by the then acting estate manager Lucy Gachara dated December 18 2014 (ref.UON/CA/EST/4857/40(30).Read More on the link below:

This man Peter ‘Mother Fucker’ Mbithi should not be given a second term. There are many reasons.
Mbithi supported police brutality inside the institution in 2017 and has always blamed the students for his failures.
In 2017, the police were allowed to enter the university’s hallowed grounds, raped, beat and maimed some students.
He also doesn’t care if students from the University hurt, worse stoll when they are Luos.
Remember the case of former student leader Samuel OCS Ragira? Inhumane.
Students need a leader, not a coward licking the buttocks of the executive branch of government of Kenya.
He is a tribalist who has eaten the click bait of ethnicity that demonises members of the Luo community. After the upheavals of 2017, he expelled students for one tribe as the list attached below shows.
It cannot be easily established what this MF has done with money as recently it was reported in that the institution is broke to a tune of over Kshs. 5 billion.
The Auditor General’s report stated that UoN’s financial statement as at June 2018 reflects current liabilities of Sh5,724,377,000 while assets stand at Sh4,288,628 resulting in a negative working capital of Sh1,435,749,000.
During the period under review, Auditor General Edward Ouko noted in a report tabled in Parliament that the university was unable to meet its financial obligations.
In particular, Mr Ouko said that the university was unable to remit PAYE of Sh282 million, NSSF Sh3 million, NHIF Sh10 million, Chuna Sacco Sh204 million and HELB Sh1.5 billion.
