The Director of Kenya Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat Mr. Mugo Kibati, EBS cut a cake during the celebrations of the official opening of The Chancellor’s Tower. Looking on is the Founder and Chairman Mount Kenya university, Mr Simon Gicharu,CBS.
Mount Kenya University has opened a 10-storey building at its Thika Main Campus. The Chancellor’s Tower was commissioned a week ago to provide extra state of the art facilities at the campus.
The name of the tower was arrived at through a competitive process that involved all current and past students of the university. The students, encouraged by the prize money for best name, suggested more than 1,000 names. The Chancellor’s Tower reflects the apex position the Chancellor holds at the university, which mirrors the building’s stature in Kiambu County, and that of MKU amongst its contemporaries in the higher education arena. In addition, the Chancellor’s position at the university is perpetual, and so is the building with its rock solid foundation
