UoN Issues July Salary Delay Notice to Its 8,000 Staff Members,

The University of Nairobi (UoN) has informed its more than 8,000 staff members that there would be a delay in the delivery of their income for the month of July through a correspondence that was sent out to them.

The university’s interim vice-chancellor, Professor Julius Ogeng’o, sent a note on August 3 asking members of the staff to be patient while they try to remedy the issue. He requested that employees practice patience.

According to Ogeng’o, “We want to express our sincere apologies to our valued staff members for the delay in processing the salaries for July,” and “We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

The VC chose not to disclose the particular reason for this delay, instead attributing it to unavoidable external factors that were beyond their sphere of influence.

He has given his word that the university is working hard to make certain that the pay would be distributed as quickly as humanly possible.

Ogeng’o made the statement not long after he took over as Vice Chancellor of the university, following Stephen Kiama, who is currently on a sabbatical leave for the next six months.

The University Academic Staff Union voiced their worries about the delay in wage payments across the board in March. This issue affected all public universities.

Constance Wasonga, who serves as the Secretary General of the Union, issued a warning that the academic staff might consider engaging in industrial action if the delays continued.

This situation is very similar to another one that occurred not long ago and affected a large number of government employees working in a variety of ministries. Officials believe that the problem was caused by a technical issue.

There have been technical challenges affecting the processing of government payrolls, according to documents that have been circulating internally among several ministries.

According to an explanation provided by the Ministry of Public Service, the reason for the delay is because continuing updates are being applied to the process of switching from the outdated manual Integrated Personnel and Payroll Database (IPPD) system to the brand new online unified human resource (UHR) system.
