Exposure to international co-curricular activities goes a long way in shaping the future lives of students. MKU Dean of Students Evans Omwango says competitive sports and culture enable students identify and hone their talents, which can be beneficial.
Speaking in reference to the East African University games which were held at Uganda Christian University, Mukono, Uganda in December last year, Mr. Omwango said the youth brim with sports and creative talent.
The East African University sports tournament is held every two years and is organised by the East African Universities Sports Federation. In the event, MKU participated in nine disciplines achieving 12th position overall out of 47 Universities, and 5th position among Kenyan Universities. The University attained two gold medals, four silver medals and two bronze medals. It also brought home the runners-up trophy for ladies Handball team.
MKU was represented in the soccer, rugby, handball, basketball, lawn tennis, karate, swimming, volleyball and athletics disciplines. “Besides honing sports talent, the objective of the tournament was to foster the East African Cooperation,” said Mr. Omwango.
