It is with deep sorrow, and great sense of loss, that we meet here today without the late Father of our Nation, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, who was the first Chancellor of the University of Nairobi. It is truly impossible to find suitable words to express our gratitude for all he did for us and our country. Indeed, I fully recognize that in becoming the Chancellor of the University of Nairobi, I am succeeding someone who in many ways is irreplaceable. However, the late Chancellor left for us a sound foundation. I am therefore, confident that, with your support and dedication, we shall be able to ensure that this University grows from strength to strength.
