H.E Deputy Governor Kajiado County, is a proud alumnus of MKU
“My name is Martin Moshisho Martine. I am the Deputy Governor of Kajiado County, so people address me as “His Excellency”. Importantly, I am a proud alumnus of Mount Kenya University and I have returned as a postgraduate student.
I first joined MKU in September 2009 to pursue diploma studies in banking and finance. In 2014, having moved on to degree studies, I graduated with a Bachelor of Business Management (Human Resource). I’m currently pursuing a Master of Business Administration, still at MKU.
During my studies at the university, I got the opportunity to serve my fellow students in various leadership capacities. These included being a class representative and chairman of Mount Kenya University Students Association (MKUSA) Electoral Commission. I held these positions in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
In 2012, I was elected President of MKUSA, a position that enabled me to also serve at the National Secretariat of Kenya University Students Organisation (KUSO).
With these experiences, I bear testimony that Mount Kenya University offers equal opportunity to students to pursue their dreams and aspirations regardless of their background, faith, colour or gender.
Working at MKU
In 2015, the university gave me the opportunity to work as coordinator of foreign students, and later as coordinator in charge of clubs and associations.
In 2017, I decided to join politics, not because I was tired of working at MKU, but because the university gave me a lot more to share with the world.
Amazingly, MKU Management gave me ample time to campaign, without terminating my contract. Ultimately, I got elected.
Working with MKU was a great experience. I am sincerely indebted to the leadership of the University for supporting employee development and growth.
Serving My County and the Nation
Now serving the nation as Deputy Governor of Kajiado County at the age of 33, I am proud to be squarely in the bracket of young leaders in Kenya. With this, I can confidently tell fellow youths that they have a place in the leadership of this country. They just have to believe in their dreams and push on.”
