Mkombozi , a dance by Thika Main Campus and Shisanda by Kakamega Campus won the overall awards in Modern and Contemporary dance, respectively.

Mercy Illah, a first year Hospitality Management student at Thika Main Campus also earned the institution the 2ndrunners up trophy with her Solo Verse Mbegu.

“We are an emerging powerhouse in theatre and performing arts in general,” said Ruth Mutahi, MKU Director of the Institute of Film, Creative and Performing Arts. “This year, there was a remarkable improvement in all the genres, as evinced in the awards we scooped.”

The university’s entries were adjudged as best in term of relevance in choice of topics, in particular highlighting of social ills. Besides the Best Modern Dance award,Mkombozi, which was a story about liberty, governance and forgiveness also received the Best Choice of Lyrics award, Best Female Dancers award, Best Costume and Décor award, Best Original Modern Dance and Best Choreography awards.

The event held at several venues in Nakuru town, namely Melvin Jones, Lions Primary, Lohana, Menengai and Afraha High School halls saw universities, secondary schools, primary schools and technical training institutions compete for national glory. The finalists were selected during the regional drama festival between March 12 and 15 this year. MKU is the main sponsor of the event.

There were seven regions namely Mau, Coast, Nzoia, Lake, Highlands, Metropolitan and Aberdares. MKU was well represented across all the regions, thanks to the fact that it has a footprint throughout the country. For the first time in the history of the Festival, universities had their own separate hall.

“Apart from a few glitches and lack of coordination here and there, the performances and creativity on stage was a great improvement,” said John Oyucho, one of the adjudicators.

MKU Vice-Chancellor Prof. Stanley Waudo said, “drama has been widely acclaimed as a positive medium for mirroring the society. We as MKU realise this irrefutable role. The management of the university hopes that the festival identifies and nurtures talent.”

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.
