The University of Nairobi is set to construct a Sh2 billion building to host classes for Chinese language and culture.

The complex - which will house lecture halls, offices and a students’ dormitory - will be financed by China through its Confucius Institute, an education agency that promotes Chinese language and culture in overseas countries.

Construction is set to begin in March next year and will take 18 months to complete.

“The vice-chancellor Prof Peter Mbithi has today signed an implementation agreement on the construction of the state-of-the-art Confucius Institute Building at the University of Nairobi,” reads a statement from the varsity.
