Allow me to thank you all for your presence is an indication of high level of support that Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) enjoys from your duties and service for all our students and staff. 

Your support is crucial especially at this time when the Forum is covering for thematic areas namely, Kenya Association Women in Policing (KAWP) awareness, social life and work balancing, financial management and investment and emerging legal issues.

The challenges faced by female officers are not exclusive to them. Life in general has challenges and is only those that face up to the challenges that succeed in life. Competitiveness, upward mobility, career progression for our administrative police officers, MMUST to work out and launch. 

Am also happy to let you know that today marks an important day in Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) to become a caring institution. We have embarked on a journey which we hope will position MMUST as a competitive quality driven and financially stable yet caring university.

I would like to invite you all as friends of MMUST to assist us in marketing our programmes and the University. We have something for everybody from certificate, diploma, degree, master’s and doctorate as well as short courses to keep you all on the cutting edge notably in Peace and Conflict Resolution, Criminology and the ODeL platform among others. Among other areas we intend to start include Medical School, School of Law, School of Business Leadership, Short Courses and Training. Of interest to Administrative Police, will be our desire to launch a course in Policing. This moves away from the old to accepted new ways of policing.

Ladies and gentlemen, as you may have already noted our vision is to be “a center of excellence in Science and Technology responsive to development needs of society through engagement in dynamic knowledge creation and application”. 

We intend to achieve this dream through relentless pursuit of knowledge acquisition agenda, community outreach, multiple strategies of law enforcement, prevention, education and promotion of ethics and integrity. 

We draw our courage in realization that this forum is fully in support of our endeavors as demonstrated by the thematic areas to be covered.
