Trans Nzoia Community Leaders Back Governor’s University Initiative

Religious and community leaders in Trans Nzoia County have expressed their support for Governor George Natembeya's proposal to establish a university in the region.

Religious and community leaders in Trans Nzoia County have thrown their weight behind Governor George Natembeya’s ambitious plan to establish a university within the region. In a meeting held at a Kitale hotel on Friday, these leaders voiced their enthusiastic support for the initiative, citing its potential to catalyze economic growth and uplift living standards for residents.

Highlighting the university’s pivotal role in addressing pressing local challenges, including the decline in maize and dairy production, the leaders underscored the importance of offering relevant academic programs tailored to the county’s needs.

Bishop Raymond Mutama, speaking on behalf of the attendees, emphasized the transformative impact the university would have on the youth, providing them with the opportunity to pursue higher education without the need to travel long distances. By offering education closer to home, the university would alleviate financial burdens on parents and guardians associated with transportation and accommodation costs.

Dr. Hellen Yego, the vice-chairperson of the taskforce overseeing the university’s establishment, reassured the gathering of the team’s commitment to incorporating the community’s input into the final report. She reiterated Governor Natembeya’s unwavering dedication to realizing the university project, underscoring its significance in driving socio-economic development in the county.

Currently, public forums are underway to gather additional input from residents to inform the university’s development plans. The taskforce comprises esteemed individuals such as Professor Masibo Lumala, Professor Battan Khaemba, Professor Caleb Elung’ata, Dr. Hellen Yego (Vice-Chairperson), Dr. David Wafula Lwangale, youth representative Hosea Sismat Chemche, Dr. Julie Magomere, Professor Bulitia, Julius Kivase, Eliud Wakasiaka Mwichabe (secretary), and Alfred Mang’oli Namwitako.
