Residents of Suna West in Migori County have asked the Government to elevate Migori Teachers Training Colege (TTC) into a University.

They said that the College is one of the oldest institutions that needs to be elevated into a higher learning institution so as to provide education to the residents and students from afar in tandem with the objectives of the devolved governments.

Speaking during the Suna West Constituency Education stakeholders meeting, the residents accused Governor Ochillo Ayacko’s administration of dragging their feet concerning elevation of the TTC.
“Leaders have come and go after harping on the establishment of the University and it is our time now to speak aloud,” said Dr Pamellah Odhiambo, a resident of the area.

She asked the government to elevate the college into a University but amalgamate the current courses offered to many technical training institutes like Kakrao within the county.

The residents said Migori is the only county in Nyanza that has no University and asked President William Ruto to intervene for the area to have one.

Dr. Odhiambo accused an unnamed Vice Chancellor who diverted the attention of former President Daniel Moi from Migori to elevate the then Kisii Teachers Training College (TTC) into Kisii University because Migori was perceived as a politically wrong region.

Area MP Dr Peter Masara promised to raise the matter in Parliament and informed the constituents that educational matters call for minding searching moments.

He agreed with the residents wishes to upgrade the College because it will increase the number of students joining University from the area by reducing costs incurred in long distance travels and accommodations.
