MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL, MAMA NGINA UNIVERSITY COLLEGE.
The Mama Ngina University College (MNUC) is a public University College and is named in honor of Kenya’s First Lady, Mama Ngina Kenyatta, the wife of the first President of the Republic of Kenya, the late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta. Referred to as ‘Mother of the Nation’, Mama Ngina is the embodiment of resilience and commitment of Kenyan women and mothers. The national historical connectivity is significantly compounded by the fact that Kiambu County in which the University College is located is where the founding father of this nation got in contact with formal education. The population of Kiambu County is approximately 2,519,000 people and according to UNESCO standards, such a population should have several universities to support its development.
