Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (Mmust) has closed down four of its satellite campuses.

The campuses that have been shut down are those of Mumias, Kisumu, Kapsabet and Nairobi.

“The Management Board and the senate on January 12, this year held a special meeting over closure of some of its branches. The closure was part of the restructuring process which has been going on for a while with the aim of improving the efficiency of the services,” said Prof. Shibairo.

The institution’s Acting Vice Chancellor Prof Solomon Shibairo told the media that they shut down the campuses since they were not economically viable and that the institution was making losses in running them.

“The Management Board and the senate on January 12, this year held a special meeting over closure of some of its branches. The closure was part of the restructuring process which has been going on for a while with the aim of improving the efficiency of the services,” said Prof. Shibairo.

The VC, all the affected students have been advised to immediately report to the main campus for placement.

“The students who were placed in these campuses will take semester one examination in their various learning centers where after they will be relocated and placed in other campuses of their choice which includes  the main campus in Kakamega, Webuye and Bungoma town,” said Shibairo.

He said a Senate Transition Committee has been put in place to oversee smooth transition of the process.
