Maasai Mara University wants to forge partnership with Marsabit County Government

The County Government of Marsabit is all- prepared to partner with investors willing to invest within its borders as long as the benefits accruing from that investment would in the long run take the county to the next level.

This affirmation was made today in the morning (Wednesday) by the county governor, Ambassador Ukur Yatani, when he received a high-level entourage from Maasai Mara University who visited him at his office with the express brief of forging partnership with Marsabit County on some key areas. These key areas include; animal husbandry, human health, hospitality, wildlife conservation, education and herbal medicine.

Professor Philip G. Ngunjiri (the university chancellor) who led the university council delegation revealed that the centerpiece of the envisaged partnership involved an investor who approached the university to help him identify a potential county where he could partner with for a period of time. The University subsequently, settled for Marsabit County, Prof. Ngunjiri disclosed. Source

Mr Ruto said the government has used Sh1.1 billion in supporting the infrastructural development of Maasai Mara University and that Sh250 million will be further committed to help in the construction of the institution’s library. Source
