Message from the Head of Department

I warmly welcome you to the home page of the Department of Zoology, Entomology and Fisheries Sciences . We strive to equip our students with the knowledge and skills to meaningfully contribute to the development of natural resources for the welfare and benefit of society. The fact that many of our graduates occupy positions of authority in society as researchers, educators, entrepreneurs, administrators and consultants is testimony to the quality of training that we deliver. We welcome any suggestions for improvement and collaboration. I hope you enjoy your visit with us, and please do visit again.
