Speaking at the celebration the Chancellor Dr. Vijoo Rattansi noted the positive strides the university has made towards virtual learning and service delivery over the past 20 months. ''COVID-19 appears to have played the unforeseen hand in this quest to deliver cutting edge education beyond the university’s four walls''. Dr. Rattansi said. The Chancellor also emphasized on the need to retool the staff, review the curriculum in order to enrich our comparative and competitive advantage amidst a revolving local and global economy.
The Vice Chancellor Prof. Kiama on his part congratulated the graduands and ushered them into the world of work having acquired the necessary knowledge, skills and behavior. He encouraged the graduands to stay connected to the university. ''we expect you to stay connected to the university and continue to espouse the values of the University wherever you will be. Learning at the university of Nairobi is such a great experience. You learn with the best and also learn from the best scholars as you interact with the industry. It truly accords you the opportunity for self –discovery, getting challenged and getting the best out of yourself''. the VC stated.
The faculty had one PHD candidate Dr.Buluma Bwire who graduated with a Doctor Philosophy in Law. Dr. Bwire submitted a thesis project on; How far is too far? The separation of power doctrines and judicial review of legislative action in Kenya. Part of his abstract reads; ‘While it is generally held that the Kenyan Constitution facilitates the judiciary’s independent exercise of its power of judicial review of legislative action as a check and balance on the legislature, the problem is that unfettered exercise of this power results in unwarranted judicial interference in legislative processes’ read the full abstract
