Kisii Campus

Kigali CampusKigali Campus“Where carving is a latent talent”
Kisii is synonymous with soap stone carvings. It is an art that is learnt right from the cradle and handed down to generations. With the increasing cosmopolitan nature of the town and access to education, this hitherto traditional past time has been transformed into a lucrative commercial activity. Kisii town, the location of the MKU Campus
is the headquarters of Kisii County. According to Wikipedia,the town was initially known as “Bosongo,” derived from “Abasongo”, which means “white people”.

British soldiers were the first inhabitants here, running from gunfire from German soldiers in Lake Victoria in the early 20th Century. Since then, Kisii has always been cosmopolitan by nature, attracting residents and revellers of diverse racial and tribal affiliations. It is also easy to appreciate the rampant  entrepreneurial spirit of the people here. Kisii also has a reputation for producing choice bananas, tea and sugarcane.
