Kenyan President H.E Uhuru Kenyatta’s sister Ms. Wambui Kristina Kenyatta Pratt, EBS, has commended Mount Kenya University for its contribution to higher education in the region.
Speaking during the official launch of the MKU Enterprise Academy, a unique initiative meant to train entrepreneurs drawn from the University alumni, Ms. Kenyatta said MKU has not only made quality higher education accessible but also affordable to many. “With Campuses throughout Kenya and in Kigali, Rwanda and SomaliLand, you have literally changed the lives of thousands of people,” she said. The University, she noted, has earned a distinction for embracing training in science courses, which are very expensive.
Ms. Kenyatta, who is also the Chairperson, Board of Trustees, National Fund for the Disabled of Kenya, noted that the science courses at MKU have helped improved livelihoods of people through discovery of new knowledge. She encourage the institution to forge ahead with the planned MKU School of Medicine, which will admit its first batch of students this year.
