The University of Nairobi will on September 25th, 2020 perform their 63rd graduation ceremony. Only this time, UON graduation will be held online.
In a statement released on Friday, the UON Vice Chancellor, Prof. Stephen Kiama noted that those to graduate will be students who have qualified for PHDs, Masters, Bachelors, Diplomas, and Fellowships.
Three active members of staff and one retired staff member succumbed to the disease.
In a message of condolence to those affected by Covid-19, the vice chancellor had this to say;
It is a difficult period for our Country and UoN community. I convey my condolences to the affected families and pray to the almighty God to give them comfort and strength to overcome the pain and loss. I also wish a quick recovery to all those who have tested positive.
UON had earlier on this month indicated of their wish to reopen its 35 campuses in November 2020 for full face-to-face learning.
But as the virus infections continue to surge, the hope of reopening of institutions of higher learning is still marred with uncertainty.
