Africa-Press – Kenya. Kakamega County Governor Fernandes Barasa now wants KCA University management to reinstate a twinning program for students.

Barasa who is among the university founders said the program helped students create meaningful international networks.

“There value in universities having twinning arrangements so that we expose our students to international linkages,” Barasa said.

The Kakamega County boss who also served as the 21st Chairperson of ICPAK between 2016 and 2017 championed for the said program.

KCA University would partner with institutions of higher learning in the United States of America, specifically targeting areas of Research and Public Finance Management.

“The main aim was to make KCA University a center of excellence in accountancy in Kenya,” he said.
