The school of economics has highly qualified lecturers who work tirelessly to help the student achieve their goals. The likes of Dr. Gachanja, DR. Onono, DR. Gitahi and many others are very industrious. They take the interest of students at heart. Apart from availing themselves in classes on time, they also create extra time for consultation and academic guidance and counseling where necessary. It is my prayer that God continues to bless them so that they continue with their hard work. Thank you.
