Kisii October 18, 2020……………. Kisii University students have welcomed  President Uhuru Kenyatta to  their institution when he  presides over this year’s  ‘Mashujaa’ Day celebrations in the county.

Through their umbrella body,Kisii University Students Union(KUSU) the students  reminded the President of pledges he made when he was last at the institution of higher learning in 2017.

Among the promises,they claimed, were inauguration of the multi-million shilling  science complex and provision of  some learning infrastructure.

KUSU  leader,Kennedy Chemase said the 30,000 students fraternity were excited to receive Uhuru at the University  for the official launch of the  ultra-modern building funded by the national government.

Secretary General, Charles Okoth, remarked like other institutions, the university was experiencing funding challenges from the government  which had since led to redundancies.

He petitioned the president to address the financial constraints should he  spare time out of his busy itinerary  to visit the university.

Faith Chepkosgei,a union member,petitioned Uhuru to consider providing some physical facilities geared towards transforming the institution to compete with others globally.

His visit to the county,she observed, evoked  sentiments of nostalgia that should persuade him to visit and  interact with the student community once again.
