The Construction of the South Eastern Kenya University (SEKU) Mwingi campus is now set to resume.
This is according to SEKU Vice-Chancellor Geoffrey Muluvi who visited the institution under construction in the Kanzoka area, Mwingi Central sub-county of Kitui county.
Muluvi noted that Governor Julius Malombe promised to ensure the stalled project is completed so that students from the area benefit.
“I can say we have great plans to ensure the university is completed. I urge the locals to exercise patience as everything is being put into place, the fence already erected should signal that work has already begun,” Muluvi said.
He also thanked the group of professionals that bought the land where the institution is being constructed and handed it over to SEKU.
The project was begun by Governor Malombe during his first tenure and got stalled after he lost in 2017. The construction of the institution will cost close to 400 million.
Muluvi confirmed that the Migwani campus is complete and those seeking to do Diplomas and Certificates can inquire about September admissions.
Campbell Munyambu, Mwingi professionals co-ordinator said that they have faith the project will be completed in a short time because Governor Malombe treasures education.
“His slogan is ‘Kisomo Mbee’ and we know he won’t fail us, we are grateful because our children won’t need to go far to get education,” said the chairman.
