Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Mmust And Resident Of Kakamega Town

The conversion of Western College (WECO) into a full Universuty ( Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology MMUST)has brought change in the Resident of Kakamega town.Mostly affected being those whose land boarder the institution.This have seen many people selling their land to private sectors moving deeper away from the University,others have utilized their small piece of land by building hostels to accommodate the large number of students who study there the wicked individuals have opened commercial sex business to lure students into it in the name of seeking money.I have also attracted commercial enterprises.I am sure the strategic point of Nakumatt Kakamega is as a result of MMUST due to ready market.
