Mount Kenya University Rebrands
Mount Kenya University (MKU) has phased out its ‘scaling the heights of education’ theme to ‘unlocking infinite possibilities’.
Varsity celebrates 10 years of existence as fully fledged university now has also launched staff provident scheme that will see its employees receive sufficient retirement funds.

Speaking during a colorful grand launch of the new brand, Gicharu said that the university was committed to securing the retirement future of its staff.
He revealed that the university staff will be required to contribute a certain percentage of their salary every month as the university tops up the other percentage to fully secure its workers future.
Staff at the university upon enrollment to the scheme will also benefit from access to mortgages and tax exemption.
To achieve all these, Gicharu said the university will push for zero-tolerance of dishonesty among all stakeholders.
He said that internal auditors would be employed to monitor the university systems and track student’s performance.
“Am very happy that the university has taken the first step in its line of living to its mission of ensuring that integrity thrives at the university. We will employ internal auditors to help us offer surveillance to our systems as well as monitoring students’ performance and together I believe we can promote integrity the highest levels possible,” he said.
Backed by integrity, aspiration to be a world class university and its commitment to growing talents, the university hopes to improve its services even as it dons a new face.
Secretary of communication and state house spokesperson Manoah Esipisu who was at the event said “Young people are the center of the presidents big 4 things that he thinks will transform this country in the next 5 years. Universal health care, manufacturing, affordable housing and food security/nutrition are some of the pillars that will offer opportunities to many of those joining the job market”.
