Religious and community leaders in Trans Nzoia County have voiced their support for Governor George Natembeya’s initiative to establish a university in the county.

During a meeting at a Kitale hotel on Friday, the leaders highlighted the potential of the university to boost the county’s economy and improve living standards for residents. They emphasized the university’s role in addressing local challenges, including declining production of maize and dairy products, by offering relevant academic programs.

“The university will ensure our youth have the opportunity to pursue higher education close to home, eliminating the need for them to travel long distances,” stated Bishop Raymond Mutama. Reduced transportation and accommodation costs would also ease the financial burden on parents and guardians, he added.

Dr. Hellen Yego, the taskforce’s vice-chairperson, assured those present of the team’s commitment to reflecting the community’s desires in their final report. She reiterated the Natembeya administration’s dedication to the university project.

Public forums are currently underway to gather additional public input. The taskforce itself comprises prominent figures such as Professor Masibo Lumala, Professor Battan Khaemba, and 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.
