This Wednesday's weekly service brought a mix of joy and contemplation as Vice-Chancellor Prof. Henry Kiplangat officiated the announcement of the newly appointed University Provost Ag. Rev. Justus Mutuku and Ag University Chaplain Rev. Laban Kittony.
The Vice-Chancellor extended his heartfelt congratulations to Rev. Mutuku and Rev. Kittony for their new roles within the university. Prof. Kiplangat expressed his confidence in their ability to lead and inspire the Kabarak University fraternity. He emphasized the significance of prayer, encouraging everyone present to lift up these leaders in their prayers regularly. The Vice-Chancellor also called upon the community to support them actively, urging them to follow the examples set by Rev. Mutuku and Rev. Kittony as they follow the path of Jesus faithfully.
As the chapel resonated with a spirit of celebration, the mood took a sombre turn when Prof. Kiplangat addressed the unfortunate passing of a nursing student earlier in the week. Expressing his condolences, the Vice-Chancellor shared the sadness felt across the university and assured the community that an investigation was underway to understand the circumstances surrounding the tragedy.
In a poignant moment, Prof. Kiplangat urged the students to prioritize their well-being and safety. He emphasized the importance of self-care and encouraged students to look out for one another, fostering a supportive environment within the university community. The Vice-Chancellor reminded everyone that Kabarak University is not just an academic institution but a place where students grow holistically – mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
