Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology (JOOOUST) has raised the stakes to boost food security in Africa.
The university was recently recognised as the African Centre of Excellence for Edible Insects by the World Bank. The programme, funded by the World Bank to the tune of Sh500 million for the next five years, is the first among several programmes that the university is planning to establish across the country.

"The university being along the lake, we realised that fish stock was dwindling and we therefore thought of finding other alternative food and feeds that the lake could offer," said Agong'.
