Uhuru urges continued growth in education

09 July 2014, 17:17 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has said that the country has room for growth in the education sector describing the country as understudied.

The president has lauded the increased numbers of children going to school and the high enrollment into public universities.

He further insists that there is need for more Kenyans to enroll for graduate programmes to institute Kenya's growth as a nation.

" Our country remains under-studied. We still know too little about the land we are privileged to call our own. And of that knowledge, too little of it is in Kenyan hands and much of it remains in the hands and minds of foreign scholars.

" We must also admit that we do not always put the knowledge we generate to the best use. Too often, seed sown by Kenyan scholars has fallen on barren ground. This must change. We cannot achieve the economic transformation we want, and we cannot have the knowledge that mature and developed nations have, if we do not rededicate ourselves to the hard work of understanding ourselves, he said.

The president was speaking Wednesday during the opening of a new administration block and Graduate School building at the Kenyatta University.

He praised the institution for enrolling as many students for programmes as they have in recent years.

" Kenyatta University, has played a part in building the educated labour force we need for our development agenda. In just the last eight years, your enrollment has grown from 10,000 students to the current strength of 65,000 students - indeed, quite a remarkable feat, he said.

He also ordered the ministry of lands to ensure that the university is cleared of some of the issues surrounding land that is being claimed by other persons that belongs to the university.

"I have noted the dispute around some of the university's land. This matter must be resolved. In this context, I am directing the cabinet secretary for Lands to inquire into the matter, and to fully bring it to closure.
