North Mugirango MP Joash Nyamoko has confirmed that the proposed Nyamira University will be built on the land belonging to Kiabonyoru Secondary School.

Nyamoko, who is the chairman of Gusii elected leaders, was speaking at the school when he took some legislators to the area for more visibility study.

“I talked to President Ruto personally after wider consultations with Gusii leaders and he agreed the university to be at Kiabonyoru where the foundation stone had been laid by leaders some time ago,” he said.

He narrated that the late education minister Prof George Saitoti, in consultation with local leaders and the community, earmarked and laid a foundation stone at Kiabonyoru.

The MP said that the Vice Chancellor of Kisii University Prof Nathan Ogechi and his team visited the site recently and agreed with the planning team.

He was flanked by a number of Members of Parliament from Nyamira and Kisii counties, who included National Assembly Chief Whip and South Mugirango MP Sylvanus Osoro, Dr Daniel Manduku (Nyaribari Masaba), Zaheer Jhandah (Nyaribari Chache), and Alpa Miruka (Bomachoge Chache).

He said the president will visit the region next week to launch several projects that will include a Ksh1.8 billion Cancer centre.

The MPs lauded Education CS Ezekiel Machogu for his unshakable focus on education, appealing to skeptics to avoid mixing politics with development.
