Twenty four Acres of land have been set aside for the construction of the Barack Obama University in Kogelo by the Siaya County government. The University which is set to honour Former US President Barack Obama will benefit learners from the Lake basin region with unique courses that are not offered in most of the institutions in the country. Courses like Democracy and Institution management will be among the courses that will be offered.
What’s interesting is the learning mechanism in the said institutions that is yet to be constructed. Retired professors from the US will offer courses in the institution.
Present during the meeting was the area MCA Joseph Mboha who pledged to present motions to the local legislative house to enable smooth construction of the University.
