The Mount Kenya University has joined hands with a United Nations agency to establish a radio station for use to train inmates at Naivasha Maximum Prison in Nakuru County.
The Kenya National Commission for United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizational (KNATCOM-UNESCO) signed the memorandun of understanding with MKU today.
The announcement was made by the KNATCOM – UNESCO Secretary General / CEO Dr. Evangeline Njoka during the signing ceremony of the MoU at the MKU Main Campus in Thika of Kiambu County.
Dr. Njoka said her organization supports many local radio programmes.
Through this programme, she explained, the inmates who are educators will be trained and in turn train their colleagues on various areas geared to supplement efforts of realization of the Strategic Development Goals (SDGs).
Dr. Njoka said that UNESCO is seeking a students’ training entrepreneurship programme to teach MKU students before graduating on how to be job creators and not job seekers.
