Mount Kenya University has started a programme that will see the institution nurture talents among its students, the Principal Students and Alumni Affairs, Peter Waweru has revealed.
Speaking during MKU’s fifth annual cultural week, Waweru said the Office of Film, Creative and Performing Arts had been tasked with ensuring talents are supported and exploited.
“This year’s Culture Week was a long awaited event by our students, especially those who joined the university in 2020 and 2021 as they have never experienced one. “Participation in all activities was by all students. In fact, the winner of Mr MKU is a student from Congo.
The results show that there is equal participation by all students without any preference. Miss MKU was won by a student in the School of Business.”
Congolese Jaebet Mukela Twite, 24 , who studies Business Management at the main campus became the first foreign student to win the Mr MKU crown, while the Miss MKU crown was won by Merly Sheila Awour, also a Business Management student.
