IMG 4919MMUST hosted the Nation Media Group (NMG) team headed by the new CEO Mr. Stephen Gitagama, during a courtesy call by the University Vice Chancellor Prof. Fred Otieno at the main campus, on 5th June 2018. The meeting was aimed at establishing a formidable working relationship between the two institutions to mutually work together and enable academics from MMUST publish their articles not only on the NMG’s national newspaper-The Daily Nation, but also on its various social media platforms, to increase the University’s publicity. Speaking during the meeting, Mr. Gitagama applauded the MMUST team articulating that NMG staffs from MMUST were doing an excellent job thanks to the best training they acquired from the University. He also urged MMUST team to be sharing their articles in real-time for them to get published, as they are shifting from feeding their audience with daily hard news, to providing educational and life changing publications and therefore need for MMUST researchers to bring on board their articles for publication.

While receiving the visitors, the Vice Chancellor Prof. Otieno commended the move to work with NMG saying close relationship with the Nation team will eradicate misunderstanding as he invited them on board to share their experiences with MMUST’s Journalism and Mass Communication students. He requested that the NMG journalists be sent to the University frequently to update students with the current job market expectations, for them to be better placed after completion of their four year course. Prof. Otieno said that the institutions soon be signing a MoU that will see everything brought in fruition as per the expectations of each party.
