The director general of Kenya Vision 2030, Mugo Kibati, has asked Kenyans to spend little time in politics and use most of their time in national development. He said if the country is to move from the third world bracket to prosperity, the culture of politicking must stop.
"We should only use one hour for politics and the rest in development," Kibati said. He was speaking at Mount Kenya University while launching the Vice Chancellor Mentorship and Innovation Grant and opening the chancellor's tower in Thika.
Kibati said universities have a major role to play in achieving Vision 2030. He said they are expected to produce knowledgeable professionals who will steer Kenya politically, socially and economically. He commended MKU for being at the forefront in producing intellectuals.
Kibati challenged other universities to emulate MKU saying it is giving back to the community through public and private partnership. Kibati gave the example of partnership between MKU and Thika Level Five hospital
