SEKU To Construct Mwingi Campus At a Cost of Sh350million

South Eastern Kenya University ( SEKU) To Construct Mwingi Campus At a Cost of Sh350million

SEKU Vice Chancellor, Professor Geoffrey Muluvi, stated that the development of the SEKU Mwingi campus in Kanzoka district, Mwingi central, will cost Sh350 million and take two years to complete.

Shortly after conducting a consultation meeting with Mwingi professionals led by their chair, Titus Kivaa, Prof. Muluvi announced that the university council had begun preparations to actualize the institution, which was halted several years ago.

A few kilometers from Mwingi town, the Mwingi professionals donated a 15-acre plot of land in the Kanzoka region in 2016 to establish the institution.

However, construction came to a halt. The University administration and Mwingi specialists have confirmed that the work will proceed and be completed within two years.

“During his inauguration, Kitui Governor Julius Malombe pledged to work with SEKU management and Mwingi professionals to assure the project’s completion,” said Muluvi.

“We have agreed, and both tiers of government have agreed, to collaborate with Mwingi specialists to ensure that the campus fulfills the CUE criteria,” he continued.

Muluvi urged forbearance, asserting that conversations are already in full swing. He said a request for proposals would be issued for the installation of a fence before the end of the year.

He concurred that additional property would be required to expand the school.

The Chair, Titus Kivaa, stated that constructing such a facility without a single institution will significantly contribute to the region’s economic growth.

“In addition to bringing education closer to locals, the region will benefit from establishing employment possibilities and expanding businesses,” he stated.



The team coordinator, Campbell Munyambu, encouraged leaders to push for releasing the Sh350 million for building from the national treasury.

Gideon Mulyungi, while speaking at an event, pledged to urge the national government to find funds for the building and completion of the campus, arguing that it will help create jobs and boost development in Mwingi Sub County.
