The Cabinet Secretary of Education Professor George Amore Magoha was today in Homa Bay County to inspect the construction of modern laboratories and lecture halls for Tom Mboya University College (TUMC), a branch of Maseno University.
CS Magoha advised the only University in Homa Bay Town to do more research on water and fish shortages in the lake region.
On October 10th, 2016, the institution named after trade unionist Tom Mboya, began classes with a student population of 263 but now has over 2000 students.
Sources from the University portal have it that upon establishment through Legal Notice No. 55 in the Kenya Gazette Supplement No 45 of 8th April 2016, the University College started offering diploma and degree programmes anchored on those undertaken at the Maseno University and Certificate programmes offered at the Homa Bay Agricultural Training Centre (ATC).
In early 2019, TUMC was one among many institutions of higher learning in the country that hit headlines in the list of institutions offering unaccredited courses. We hope with the recent developments, such cases won’t be reported again.
