Kitui-based South Eastern Kenya University (Seku) has announced plans to establish a campus in Mwingi Central region.
The university, which was formerly a constituent college of the University of Nairobi prior to its award of Charter, was founded in 2013.
Speaking during a handover ceremony of a land for the establishment of the proposed Mwingi Campus at Kanzoka in Kivou ward on Friday, the institution's council chairman Louis Mumera expressed gratitude to Mwingi professionals and businessmen for donating the 15-acre land to the university.
Prof Mumera said the move will go a long way in helping Seku fulfil its mandate to provide quality education and community service.
"As you all are aware, the Government is committed not only to providing quality and affordable education and training, but also to ensuring that education is brought within the reach of the people. This ceremony today marks our first step towards fulfilling these commitments in this part of the county," he said.
