The workers were fired in general retrenchment exercise.
The affected staff were fired through text messages and given three-days to vacate their positions, Mynewsgh reports.
The affected staff from various departments at Mataheko and Miotso campuses of the University belonging to the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), were given one month salary prior to their dismissal.
A development which has angered the workers who are mostly members of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), and have worked for the University for close to 19 years.
The report said the dismissed workers are from various departments of the University at Mataheko and Miotso campuses.
In a Whatsapp group conversation cited by Mynewsgh, a senior member of the University who was clearly not happy described the treatment meted out to them as insensitive and inhumane.
He said some of the affected members have over the years worked hard to put the institution at its current state, and wondered why they should be fired via text messages and given one month salary.
"Pastor Charles some of us are not happy that you are saying truly CU has done her part for some of us and still doing to others. If you think since CU has done her part, this is not the time to make such a comment…this is hypocrisy if you ask me," an angry staff in a voice note.
The Staff added that most staff sacrificed for the University and were cohabiting with snakes yet been treated with disdain describing their dismissals as harsh wondering why they have failed to take their toil into consideration.
