MKU Appointed Kenya's Ambassador Of EA Integration.

Mt Kenya University has been appointed Kenya’s ambassador of East African Integration by the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA).  The university has also become the first institution of higher learning to fly the EAC flag in an event that was held at their Indoor Games Arena on Monday, where nine EALA members facilitated a public lecture on East African Integration.

Hon. Sarah Godana, a member of EALA, pinned a badge on the lapel to Vice Chancellor Prof Stanley Waudo as he formally received the accreditation on behalf of the university.

Prof. Waudo also received EALA Quarterly Report Magazine from EALA member Joseph Kiangoi, the EAC flag from members of EALA Nancy Abisai and the Treaty of Establishment of EAC from Yves Nsabimana of Burundi.

EALA is the legislative arm of EAC sitting in Arusha with members from all the six member states whose main aim is to discuss matters pertaining to the EAC and make recommendations to the summit which consists of the heads of member states for action.

They also have a university council of the EAC aimed at benefiting these institutions with vast wealth of information in the legislative assembly and take advantage of the opportunities in EALA Youth Council. Kenyan universities have been encouraged to start clubs that would eventually lead to that goal.
