The institute was named after Cardinal Maurice Otunga who died in 1971 for his memory.
Speaking to opera news during the official launch of the technical institute, Bumula MP Mwambu Mabonga accused his opponents for hindering him to run his agendas to Bumula electorates.
The Tanga Tanga Mp urges them to stop bribing voters and holding illegal meetings in Bumula.
" I condemn political conmen who are holding illegal meetings within my constituency, let them give me time to complete the agendas I pledged to my voters, 2022 is still far and if anybody want to become the next Mp," said Mabonga.
He urged youths to join technical institutes and get knowledge that will help them to be self-employed.
"This institute will be offering you with a variety of technical courses as approved by the ministry of education under TVET act of 2013 (1)," he affirmed.
He lauded President Uhuru Kenyatta for supporting him in getting the new Technical collage that will have positive impact on Bumula youths.
"Cardinal Otunga technical institute will not only be a local centre of excellent but it will grow into a national one and compete with Musakasa TTI and Kisiwa in Bungoma County, I am sure that it will have a huge influx from within and beyond," he noted.
His sentiments were reiterated by Rebecca Masibayi Bungoma county Kuppet treasurer who called on youths to join technical institutes.
"These technical institutes are all over the country to impact and nurture talents in youths, I also applaud the government of Kenya for having introduced this which will help those who failed to join University,” she said.
