Date and time:

The University of Nairobi was today filled with pomp and color as I held its 60th Graduation Ceremony.

A total of 9,561 candidates graduated including 81 PHDs making it the largest number since the inception of the university. Most of the graduates spoke with optimism owing to the high employability index of the university. While addressing the congregation, UoN Council chair Prof. Julia Ojiambo congratulated all the graduands and took the opportunity to send her congratulatory message to deputy president William Ruto who was among the PHD candidates.

Among the notable people graduating today are Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu and cabinet secretary Eugene Wamalwa who both attained master’s degrees in law.

While addressing the Graduands, the VC of the university Prof Peter Mbithi said that Kenya stands a higher chance of reaping big if we develop the infrastructure and the frameworks that promote the use of block chain technology and Artificial Intelligence. He also requested the government to consider setting aside seed capital for research and commercialization in this knowledge area of block chain technology and Artificial Intelligence to our national advantage

He also encouraged people to tap from the vast knowledge of scholars and professors as he equated them with wine which gets better with age.

We at CAE wish UoN Class of 2018 all the best as they start the next phase of their lives.


“May the Almighty make you instruments of His peace,Where there is hatred, sow love;Where there is injury, pardon;Where there is doubt, faith;Where there is despair, hope;Where there is darkness, light;Where there is sadness, joy;” - Dr. Vijoo Rattansi (Chancellor UoN)
