Some 3,903 graduands were on Friday awarded with degrees and diplomas during the 59th University of Nairobi graduation ceremony.
As early as 6am, hordes of people were already gathered at the university’s graduation square, loud and scuttling for a place to sit.
The ceremony marked a hallmark in the graduands’ lives as they revel their academic achievements.
The university awarded 1 doctor of science degree, 70 PhDs, 402 masters, 2,845 bachelors, 14 postgraduate diplomas, and 571 diplomas.
Notable personalities who were conferred included Samburu Senator Steven Lelegwe who graduated with a PhD in Project Management.
Prof Julius Ogeng’o – a University of Nairobi Human Anatomy expert, received a Doctor of Science Degree Award (DSC).
He joins the ranks of four other professors who have achieved the coveted feat since the establishment of the University of Nairobi.
The well-polished graduands, seated under white tents that stretched about a 100 metres away, expressed confidence of style and manner.
