Sup­port Moi var­sity cam­pus in Yala, rep urges politi­cians

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Gem politi­cians have been urged not to fight Moi Univer­sity’s Odera Akang’o cam­pus in Yala. Yala Town­ship MCA Joseph Kawuor said they should in­stead en­cour­age stu­dents to en­rol. “Their sons and daugh­ters should seek higher ed­u­ca­tion from this in­sti­tu­tion,” he said. Kawuor urged politi­cians to pay fees for needy stu­dents at the cam­pus. He spoke to the Star at the ward on Monday. Kawuor said the cam­pus will in­crease the num­ber of pro­fes­sion­als from the re­gion. He said the cam­pus will not be closed even though it re­cently en­rolled a pal­try 60 stu­dents in the first year pro­gramme. Kawuor said lo­cal lead­ers have re­solved the land is­sue prob­lem, which could have un­der­mined the in­sti­tu­tion’s need for ex­pan­sion. His sen­ti­ments come in the wake of fears by res­i­dents that the in­sti­tu­tion might be closed be­cause it has in­ad­e­quate space, hence can­not meet the reg­u­la­tory re­quire­ments for in­sti­tu­tions of such cal­i­bre.
