Which is the best technical college in Kenya

Well, there’s no way of ranking but in general, most of the government approved technical colleges are good enough and have excellent facilities.

After all, it doesn’t matter where you go to college- what matters is the effort you put wherever you are. Building cannot make you pass …you must put in the work and be curious enough to get the right skills.

So just do your due diligence- speak to former students and check Google reviews- on the college you have in mind and join if satisfied.

Good luck.
