President awards charter to Garissa University

President Uhuru Kenyatta last week granted a charter to Garissa University, making the higher institution of learning that was previously a constituent college of Moi University a fully-fledged university, reports KBC.

Kenyatta also appointed Professor Hellen Sambili as the first chancellor of the university that becomes the 31st chartered public university. Speaking during the award of charter ceremony held at State House, Nairobi, attended by Deputy President William Ruto, Kenyatta said the granting of charter was a triumph to the institution targeted by terrorists two years ago.

“Kenya will always triumph over those who preach hate, evil and destruction,” President Kenyatta said. “I am confident that Garissa University now has the capacity to provide quality university education,” he said.
