UONAA HAS MADE GREAT STRIDES The University of Nairobi Alumni Association (UONAA) has made major milestones since the publication of the last issue of this Newsletter This issue, therefore, highlights the most important milestones and other matters concerning the members and the Association. Top on the list is the launch of the Institute of Diplomacy and International Studies Alumni Chapter and the re-location of the voices of the Association from the Main Campus to the Kenya Science Campus. Meanwhile, Kenya held the first presidential and national elections under a new constitutional dispensation on March 4th, 2013. As an Association we note with pride the representation of our alumni among Cabinet Secretaries and Principal Secretaries, whose appointments were made through competitive bidding. This is a continuation of the long tradition of the positive contribution made by our alumni in all social, political, and economic spheres of the Kenyan society. This Issue, therefore, highlights these important appointments as an acknowledgment of the role and the impact of the alumni as they serve their country in various capacities. The issue also features the first visuals developed from the concept of the Alumni Centre by a student at the School of Architecture. As we mark these milestones, we cannot forget our dream of realizing the Alumni Centre. We therefore note with gratitude the various individuals and corporate organizations who have already made generous contributions towards the construction of the Alumni Centre. The Association will continue to reach out and encourage these partnerships at the individual and corporate levels. We appeal to members and corporations to make contributions- monetary and non-monetary - in order to achieve this dream in the shortest possible time. Last but not least, the editorial team acknowledges the many partners who have continued to advertise in the UoN Alumni, which has sustained the production of this newsletter. Finally to our many readers and contributors, we shall endeavor to carry the articles and feedbacks you write; while to our members we wish to encourage you to write and share your experiences with fellow Alumni. God Bless you all.
