Our Reporter

A row is brewing over the loca­tion of a pro­posed university with a legislator threatening to lead mass protest if the institution was not located in Ndaragwa.

Education Cabi­net Secretary, Fred Matiang’i has given Ol Kolau town the nod to host the new university at Salient Secondary School. However, Ndaragwa MP Waweru Nderitu has opposed the pro­posal, saying the uni­versity should instead to be set up at Simbara Secondary School in his constituency. He told residents during a meeting in Ndaragwa town that all the other five constituencies in the region have tech­nical institutions yet Ndaragwa had none.

Those who want the university located at Salient Secondary include Ol Kalou MP David Kiaraho
