Acting Vice Chancellor of Moi University, Prof. Laban Ayiro, has delivered two new buses to the University that previously had seven buses thus increasing the number to nine.
He claimed that he wants students to get the best and feel that they are in the best University. Deputy Vice Chancellor in charge of Academics, Research and Extension, Prof. Isaac Kimengi, said that transport has been a challenge to the University especially when students are supposed to go for an academic attachment.
“And this is just the beginning,” Professor Ayiro pointed out while inspecting the buses along with the university council members, shortly after they arrived at main campus from General Motors in Nairobi on Tuesday August 22, 2017. “We are very delighted and thankful to God for this great initiative to rebrand our university. We had planned to purchase three new buses but due to financial constraints, we managed to buy two. It is a good start. We are determined to make Moi University different. We want to transform this university into one of the best and transport is one of the key issues we have to address in that endeavor.”
Transport and Garage Manager, Mr. William K. Rotich, who oversaw the delivery of the buses to the University, said the 67-seater buses each cost Ksh 12,095,000. The purchase of buses is part of Professor Ayiro’s Rapid Results Initiative (RRI), a blueprint he launched right after he was appointed acting Vice Chancellor of the university to lead in the rebranding of Moi University.
Other RRI projects he plans to work on include the state-of-the-art main gate at the main campus in Eldoret that is almost complete, the first phase of the wall fence around the university, the first phase of the commissioned flood lights at five points at the main campus, the construction of an ultra-modern 6,000-seater capacity amphitheater, construction of four 500-seater lecture halls and the massive hostel project to accommodate over 15,000 students at the main campus. “On completion of these and many other projects to come, Moi University main campus is on the path to become a city, a world class university. We are currently number one in Kenya and raring to go even further. The sky is the limit,” Professor Ayiro said.
