Dr. Chao Mbogo, a Researcher, Lecturer and Mentor, in the department of Computer Science Nairobi campus, has been nominated for the ‘Zuri award’. The ‘Zuri award’ is a recognition by Go Gaga Experiental and Sochin Agency for women and organizations who are doing outstanding work in their communities.
Dr. Chao was nominated for her mentorship work to students of Computer Science, a program she has been running for the last five months. The active mentorship program is based on innovation, professional development, community involvement and scholarship. During the award nomination interview by Go Gaga and Sochin Limited at KeMU on February 21st Dr Chao’s key message was that mentorship changes lives. Active mentorship rebuilds confidence in learning, rejuvenates excitement among students, and immerses the students in computing world, hence preparing them for it. Some of her student mentees also participated in the interview, speaking about the impact of the mentorship program on them.
On Thursday 2nd February 2017, KeMU witnessed the swearing in of electoral commission of KeMU (ECK) 2017. The exercise which took place in Main Campus Chapel was duplicated in all KeMU Campuses across the country.
This ushers in the February period where student Governments are dissolved and ECK takes over and engages a series of constitutional undertakings which eventually culminate in election of new KeMUSO office bearers across the University, on 24th February 2017. The new leaders will be sworn in on Monday 27/2/2017, take office on 28/2/2017, and then all leaders will converge in the Main Campus for two days for leadership induction on 2nd and 3rd of March 2017. God bless KeMUSO.
