Zetech University is among eight institutions awarded a charter by President Uhuru Kenyatta days before he leaves office.
The institution was taken through a thorough accreditation process by the Commission For University Education, as per the law.
CUE checked for adequate facilities, human, library, and financial resources, and if Zetech offers relevant academic programs.
Kenyatta awarded the charters on August 2 at the Kakamega State lodge.
Speaking during the award, Zetech University Chancellor Susan Alfano thanked the government for considering private universities.
Alfano said Zetech will work with other education stakeholders to ensure the success of the higher education sector.
"There is an insatiable demand for industrious and virtuous young professionals with the right work ethic and necessary ethos for current global challenges," Alfano said.
On his part, Zetech VC Njenga Munene said the awarded charter will ensure the institution continues with its key mandate.
"The award of the charter is public acceptance and confirmation that Zetech is committed to meeting the academic standards set by CUE," Munene said.
Zetech was awarded alongside seven other institutions located in different parts of the country.
The seven institutions were Kaimosi Friends University (Vihiga), Alupe University (Busia), Tom Mboya University (Homa Bay), and Tharaka University (Tharaka Nithi).
Others are Lukenya University (Makueni), Kiriri Women’s University of Science and Technology (Nairobi) and the East African University (Kajiado).
