Strathmore signs MoU with Golden Valley Cooperative

 

Strathmore University was on April 6 honoured to host representatives from Turkana and Pokot who were on campus to witness the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Golden Valley Cooperative and the University.

The MoU will create areas of collaboration and intends to enhance resilience and strengthen livelihoods for the pastoralist men and women through improved and commercialized livestock production and value chains development. It will further champion peaceful coexistence of neighbouring communities in the border areas of Baringo, Samburu and Turkana counties, along the Suguta Valley.

 

The Turkana are a Nilotic ethnic community, one of the largest nomadic communities believed to have migrated from Sudan and settled around Lake Turkana. Turkana County is the second largest county at 77,000 square kilometres, an equivalent of more than 13% of Kenya’s surface. The Pokot are part of the Kalenjin community who are highland Nilotes originating from southern Ethiopia.

After the signing of the MoU, the guests proceeded to the main Chapel in Sangale Campus where they infused their traditions into the Mass normally held at 12.30 pm.
