Mount Kenya University (MKU) has phased out its ‘Scaling the Heights of Education’ theme to ‘Unlocking Infinite Possibilities’. The private university which has been in existence for 10 years now has also launched staff provident scheme that will see its employees receive sufficient retirement funds.
According to MKU founder Dr Simon Gicharu, the transformation will see the university develop to a world-class university. Speaking during a colourful rebranding ceremony, Gicharu said the university is committed to securing the retirement future of its staff. Staff at the university upon enrollment to the scheme will also benefit from access to mortgages and tax exemption.
He said internal auditors will be used to monitor the university systems and track student’s performance. “I am very happy that the university has taken the first step in line with its mission of ensuring that integrity thrives at the university,” he said.
State House spokesperson Manoah Esipisu who was at the event said: “Young people are the centre of the president’s big four things that will transform this country. Universal health care, manufacturing and affordable housing are some of the pillars that will offer opportunities to many of those joining the job market”.
