University development

 Launch of the Tuition Block Site

The groundbreaking ceremony for the proposed Modern Tuition Block for MMU which was launched by Prof. Phillip G. Ngunjiri with Member of the MMU Council led by Prof. J.J. Okumu – Chair MMU Council, Dr. T. Mungai, Dr. E. Chesire and the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Mary Walingo on February 3rd 2016.

Modern Tuition Block

The modern tuition block comprises of lecture theaters, lecture halls, offices seminar rooms and boardrooms. This tuition has a capacity of holding more 6000 students per sitting which will greatly increase the number of students enrolled at MMU.

Construction of the First Phase has already started. This is also a Ministry of Education Science and Technology Project under the state Department of Higher Education.

Sewage Water Treatment Project

Maasai Mara University is situated in a water scarce environment and hence the need for innovative ways of water conservation. The university population has experienced an exponential growth since its inception, which has increased the demand for water to unsustainable levels.

To mitigate this problem, the University through support by SAJOREC has established an innovation that is based on green technology where waste water is being treated and recycled. The recycled water will be used to irrigate the Botanical Garden conserving this meager resource.

The project has already revealed levels of success after undertaking an analysis of several parameters namely, the pH, TDS, conductivity, presence of heavy metals, DO and microbial loads. The results have shown that the water is safe for general purpose use. This project will go a long way in saving the University the limited financial resources and create a good neighborliness in terms of treatment of waste water. 

Women Hostel

Higher Education has remained inaccessible for many students in Kenya due to the inadequate infrastructure in most Universities. Limited bed capacity and lecture rooms have been cited as a big impediment to growth of higher education. Parents expectation from the University is that their children should be accommodate within the University. However, admission to a University is not pegged on bed capacity. That notwithstanding, Kenya government is assisting Universities to increase their enrolment through the exchequer by financing infrastructural development. 

Towards this end the government through the Ministry of Education Science and Technology has financed the construction of a women hostel. This project will translate into the University accommodating more than 850 female students within the University. The women hostel will be ready for occupation in the 2016/2017 academic years. This modern hostel has been designed with modern common rooms with WIFI connectivity.

SINO-AFRICA Joint Research Centre (SAJOREC) Project

Herbal medicine has been used for treatment of a wide range of human ailments in Kenya since time immemorial. Specifically, the Maasai community has a wealth of experience in herbal medicine that need to be researched, documented and a repository created. Herbal medicine has for a long time been administered without any form of quantification of their active ingredients. Medicinal plants are under threat of extinction and hence the need to conserve them for posterity.

Towards this end Maasai Mara University in collaboration with Sino-Africa Joint Research Centre (SAJOREC), Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) and Wuhan Botanical Garden (WBG) are establishing a Botanical Garden that will be a Regional Center of Excellence in herbal medicine. The work on the Botanical Garden is ongoing.  

The Botanical Garden that is shaped like the Human Body is an illustration of the various medicinal plants and the part of the body ailments targeted by the treatment. This project links Chinese Academy of Science and Wuhan Botanical Garden. The lead researchers are Prof. Liu Wang, Prof Xue Yau and Prof. Nathan Oyaro.

This project will train MMU Students and other scientists on how to conserve quantify, synthesize and administer herbal medicine.
