Campus Updates….By Issa Thuo
The cold month of July is here with us and a sweater has become that must have fashion item on everybody. This month is in some circles also referred to as the month of conception and true to it that most births are recorded between the months of March and May. Even the Holy Scripture asks, but how can one keep warm alone..? Now don’t get me wrong, purity is a prerequisite to seeing God.
The 7th annual All Africa University Games are here with us! Organized by the Federation of African University Sports (FASU), the games are set to bring together students from varsities across 16 African nations. FASU is working with the Kenya University Sports Association from host country Kenya. The theme this year is peace and solidarity in Africa through sports. The games will be happening at the University of Nairobi main and upper Kabete sports grounds and the Moi international sports centre Kasarani. Kick off date is the 11th of July and play will run up to the 18th of July.
Amongst the interesting games to look out for will be American Football – that game where they play with inflated costumes that looks like rugby for the delicate.
MCCU worship night is set to happen on the 11th of July from 8.30pm to 6.00am in Taifa Hall at the University’s main campus. The theme this time is NO OTHER NAME drawn from Acts 4:12. Ministering will be the MCCU praise and worship team and Pastor Pat famed for the song, “he go go.” The main campus Christian union is also set to have its Special General meeting on the 4th of July where members will be involved in evaluating the Union’s performance over the past half an year and to give recommendations on what can be added or improved to achieve better results over the remaining half spiritual year.
To matters world cup. The matches are getting hotter as the world prepares for the quarter finals after being treated to a hotly contested round of 16 that saw all African teams exit after the last two teams, Nigeria and Algeria, were floored by France and Germany respectively. The quarter finals which begin on Friday 4th July will see hosts Brazil face Columbia, Costa Rica face Netherlands, France face Germany and Belgium face Argentina. From these matches, only 4 teams will proceed to the semi-finals in the run up to the finals which will be played on the 13th of July.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that it is now easier to access government services? The ministry of Devolution and planning launched the HUDUMA CENTER program that will see services from various government institutions available from the same location. The first of these centers was launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta at the Teleposta towers Ground floor banking hall. Additional Huduma Centres will be opened in Nairobi as well as one Huduma Center in every county. Access to government services is now easier and less time consuming.
