Gideon Moi given powerful post

He will also be required to promote the holistic growth of the university.

The University was established in October 2002 by former President Moi who is also the Chancellor based on his visionary idea of setting up a Christian University that would meet the demand for higher education in Kenya and offer quality education based on string moral principles.
