University to establish Mau Mau education centre

20 February 2014, 11:22 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Dedan Kimathi University of Technology (DKUT) is in the process of establishing an education centre that will serve as a storehouse of educational and research materials covering Mau Mau history on independence.

The university Vice Chancellor, Professor Ndirangu Kioni said the centre will receive and hold immense historical information about the Mau Mau movement and make it readily available to ordinary people, students and researchers.

Speaking during the official opening of a conference on African Liberation Movement, Kioni noted that the work on the centre has started and they have been receiving books and other materials from researchers and scholars on Mau Mau.

He explained that the facility will be constructed to enable students and groups receive lectures and watch short films as part of the education.

He added that the centre will host a seminar room, a museum and repository of documents on Mau Mau.

The event was to mark an annual event in the university dubbed 'Kimathi Week' where students and staff engage in various activities aimed at commemorating the historic achievements of freedom fighters.

Kioni also pointed out that a space in the University has been designated the Heroes Garden where a statue of the former freedom fighter, Field Marshall Dedan Kimathi has been erected as a way to commemorate him.
