Wishes you a Happy Women’s Month

I would like to convey my sincere wishes for a happy Women’s Month to all MUT women. I also wish to thank you for all the

hard work you perform in improving the lives of society; be it in your family, churches, communities, schools and elsewhere.

It would be remiss of me not to acknowledge the role you play in the lives of MUT students,

for whom this university has become a home away from home.

 May the Lord look after you and keep you stronger
