Hello KeMU Family,
The Meru Town Centre was launched with fanfare and celebration, and though it was a chilly day, the warmth of the people and our guests soon drove the clouds away and we were blessed with the rays of the sun.
The day's event was marked by a road show in which our buses paraded around the town announcing the launch of the centre. The actual ceremony consisted of the presentation of a bouquet of flowers to the Chancellor, Rev. Dr. Stephen K. M'Impwii, by our very own Miss. KeMU, Helen Hevita. This was followed by the Chancellor cutting the ribbon (assisted by Miss. KeMU – Meru, Daisy Thiongo), the unveiling of the plaque, a tour of the facilities led by the DVC Finance and Administration, Prof. Micheni, and then a dedication of the building by the church, led by the Chancellor, our Chaplin, Rev. M. Nkari, and Rev. Gitonga (Registrar, Academic Affairs) The DVC Academic Affairs, Rev. Dr. J.K. Ataya served as the Master of Ceremonies. There was also a very proud moment with the former Bishop, rev. Dr. Lawi Imathiu made some comments and mentioned how proud he was with how KeMU had evolved. Finally the Chancellors speech touched on the importance of continuing to educate the Kenyan population and the role we play in the service of our nation, after which there was lunch provided for all in attendance.
We were entertained by the University Choir, followed by a dance troupe of five members who performed a contemporary and exciting dance.
All in all the event well and we are all grateful for the well coordinated event, and the support of all of those who made the day a success.
Picture below is the ribbon cutting, the plaque unveil, the tree planting, Rev. Dr. Lawi, Miss KeMU, and the dance troupe.
Have a celebratory day.
