University of Kwazul-Natal

A delegation from Kwazulu Natal University, South Africa led by Prof. Stephen Mutula paid a courtesy call on the Vice Chancellor of the University of Nairobi, Prof. Kiama Gitahi on 27th July 2022

The team visited the University of Nairobi to benchmark on the ongoing governance reforms that UoN has carried out recently.  Kwazulu Natal  still uses  the College Administrative system which UoN did away with  during the implementation of governance reforms.  Prof. Mutula noted the college system is expensive and bureaucratic. 

During the discussion with the VC, the two universities agreed to enter into a collaborative agreement that will help in enhancing academic and research outputs between the two universities.  The agreement will also help the two premier universities in Africa achieve the 2063 Africa Agenda through scholarships.
