Nairobi, 29 October, 2022 / 9:55 pm (ACI Africa).
An official of the Kenyan government has, during the 41st graduation ceremony of the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA), hailed the regional institution of higher learning for contributing to “education growth and social welfare” in the East African country.
In his Friday, October 28 address, Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary (CS) for Education described the Catholic University that is owned by the Association of Member Episcopal Conferences in Eastern Africa (AMECEA) as one of “the leading private universities in the region whose focus on value-based education is highly appreciated.”
“This university has made tremendous contributions to education as a private institution, especially in the areas of education growth and social welfare,” Ezekiel Machogu Ombaki said.
Mr. Ombaki said the contribution of CUEA is manifested in “the fact that this university is regional in nature, serving Eastern and Central Africa.”
He called on the Catholic University’s leadership to “continue increasing its global footprint of students and place additional emphasis on community-driven research and training so as to rise up in the global university rankings.”
