Maasai Mara University is yet to harvest more clean water for use that will be drawn from its water waste. This will be realized in a timeline of between six to seven months from today, March 8, 2019.

Propellers of the project are experts from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) as well as Sino-African Joint Research Center (SAJOREC). A team spearheading the project visited the university today led by the Deputy Director General of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) Prof. Min Yang. 

According to Prof. Yang, the current approach embraced by Maasai Mara University in harnessing waste water for irrigation purposes is commendable. He believes that his team will add value to it realizing a masterpiece way of managing water waste in universities. 

The Maasai Mara University Vice-Chancellor Prof. Mary K. Walingo was represented by the Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor Administration, Finance and Planning Dr. Aloys Osano during the engagement. Likewise, the Director, Institute of Ethnobiology & Ethnomedicines Prof. Wycliffe Wanzala led both teams for an impressive site view at the current waste management plant. They too toured the Botanical Garden.  

The team from CAS and SAJOREC are now going to design an architectural plan which will estimate the budget that will see the project completed before seven months elapse after today’s site visit.
