Those who know the journey we travelled to get a University Charter, have a clear picture how bumpy the road was. Tough as it was, by the Grace of God we managed.”
Prof. Ngamau asked the CUK students to step up to challenges facing the world and especially the youth and remain strong moral champions the world can emulate while routing for strong moral education starting in families, “It is incumbent upon all of us especially, we the community that is at a higher institution of learning to lead by example. We cannot afford to bury our heads in the sand and not follow the example of Christ the Good Shepherd. As you step out and start families, let your families be the first Church. Moral decadence starts from families; a strong family with moral and Christian values means sane communities and nations. Let charity begin within us and in our homes.”
