nanofiltrationen Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology, in collaboration with Plymouth University, Nelson Mandela Institute and Oshwal College intend to build a clean water hub in MMUST that will provide clean water through the Nano Filtration System. The initial phase started with a pilot programme and a Water-LION Training Workshop which was held at the University on Friday, 8th September, 2017. The theme of the workshop was ‘Water for Africa: Leveraging Local Innovations through Organization Networks.’

“The project intends to increase the impact of the Nano-filter product to address the problems of achieving a secure and safe domestic water supply in African communities that are not effectively served by other water supply infrastructure,” Mr. Benami Faustine Mulokozi, of Gongali Model Company Limited and Nelson Mandela African Institute of Science and Technology said while addressing participants during the workshop.

The DVC (PR&I) Prof. William Shivoga, speaking on behalf of the Vice Chancelor, Prof. Fred Otieno, noted that the quality and quantity of water in Kenya has been affected by the increasing population. He urged the team to focus on the water quality and improve the health of the communities, Kenya and Africa for enhanced sustainability.

Dr. Veronica Kiluva, from SDMHA noted that the Nano Filtration innovation will provide a solution to the water challenges that communities experience. The Director, Directorate of International Relations and Academic Linkages (DIAL) Dr. Catherine Aurah, further noted that the collaboration will add more value to the economic development of Kenya.

Mr. Benami has already supervised the building of a MMUST water kiosk and some of the equipment to be used have already been acquired. On a wonderful note, it was noted that at present permission had been sought from KEBS to brand water bottles as "MMUST WATER.”
