MKU was the first local university to host the Kwibuka20, a series of public lectures meant to remember those who died in the 1994 genocide against Tutsis in Rwanda.
The lecture, whose main speaker was H.E Yamina Karitanyi, the Rwanda High Commissioner to Kenya was held last Friday at Thika Main Campus. A similar event, which coincides with the 20th anniversary of the genocide will be held at the University of Nairobi early next month.
Former anti-graft czar PLO Lumumba, and Dr Wandia Njoya, a senior lecturer at Daystar University also participated in the event. Other Kwibuka20 events are being held in Europe and the USA.
