He lauded the step to allow Zetech University and Mount Kenya University to represent institutions of higher learning in advancing the agenda of quality education in the country.
He added that the Committee’s role will be governed by the fear of God, honesty and fairness and will follow the TSC Act 1 and the constitution.
