Dr. Fred Matiang’i, the Cabinet Secretary - Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, through an Email expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the Diaspora for the Town Hall meeting on Kenya Education recently held in Boston region. He wrote, “I remain grateful for the opportunity to interact with all of you and look forward to further engagements. Any opportunity to get feedback/views from fellow Kenyans on what is happening in the education sector in our country is always greatly appreciated.”

The Cabinet Secretary also had a message for the Kenya University Project (KUP) Diaspora developers. He wrote, “My colleagues at the Commission for University Education remain ready and committed to do their part in assisting the KUP towards its final realisation.” 

KUP is a university and town development project that was started by the Diaspora through the Entrepreneurial spirit. Hundreds of Diaspora are today part of the project through a system created through Attorney Njoroge Kamau Law Firm in the Boston region.  

Today, over 600 Diaspora have open Town House Developer files; 30 Diaspora PhD holders and Professors in various universities in U.S are working on the university founding plan; Diaspora Kenyans who are medical doctors, nurses and other professionals continue working on a Medical Hospital Plan to build a hospital at site of university; other Diaspora professionals are working on Small and Medium Enterprises they will start at the new town.    

The KUP system has seen the Diaspora put in and continue to put in thousands of professional hours as well as cash capital to progress a plan that will meet Kenya constitutional rights of housing, healthcare, education, clean water, food and social security through a job.  

Attorney Dr. Njoroge Kamau, who is part of 30 Diaspora scholars working on the university plan, appreciated Dr. Matiang’i Email. The attorney, who is also a college professor, said that Dr. Matiang’i taking time from his busy schedule to write back to Diaspora should not only be appreciated by the Diaspora and those working on KUP; but, should also be appreciated by the thousands of Kenyans who shall get education opportunity and their constitutional rights met. 

The attorney said he is optimistic that the conversation started by the Education Ministry and Diaspora will advance Kenya education, innovation, job creation and the growth of the Kenya economy at a faster GDP growth rate.
