Kwale county is set to have its first ever Teachers Training College.
On Tuesday, Governor Salim Mvurya handed over the site to the contractor where the Kwale Teachers Training College will be built in Bang’a, Puma Ward, Kinango Sub county.
He was accompanied by his deputy Fatuma Achani. In his speech Mvurya said that for many years for one to be a teacher had to travel to Mombasa, Nairobi and other parts of the country to access teaching courses.
“It is at this time that our people will access teaching courses here in Kwale once the institution is completed, unlike the many years where our people had to travel to other regions to access the courses,” said Mvurya.

Among those who attended were; area MCA James Dawa, CEC for Education Mangale Ndegwa, senior government officials and other leaders of the region.
