Kabarak University Celebrates Film & Theater Arts Triumphs

The Kabarak University School of Music and Media (SMM) erupted in excitement as they celebrated the recent achievements of their Film and Theater Arts department. The event, held at the University's Bethel Auditorium, kicked off with a stirring rendition of the national anthem by Bichanga Brian, a postgraduate student.

Following that, Professor Mellitus Wanyama, Dean of SMM, delivered the opening remarks. He highlighted the department's success at the recent National Drama Festival in Embu. Their diverse performances captivated audiences, showcasing the department's exceptional creative talent. Professor Wanyama also proudly announced a historic first for the university: the recent approval of both undergraduate and postgraduate programs in Film and Theater Arts within the School of Music and Media.

Michelle Akinyi's captivating mime performance, a first-place winner at the national competition, stole the show. It was followed by a powerful play presented by Maureen Akinyi. The play tackled the poignant issue of drunk driving and its devastating consequences. Another highlight was the short film "Fragile Lives" by Abigail Nashmi, which explored the global problem of femicide. Nashmi, along with her cast and crew, received recognition for their impressive second-place finish at the national drama festival.

The celebration wasn't just about past achievements. It served as a platform to showcase the school's talent before a distinguished audience. Professor Ronald Chepkilot, representing the University Vice Chancellor, delivered the closing remarks. He commended the School of Music and Media for their professionalism on stage. Professor Chepkilot then reflected on the vision for the school, established by the university's first chancellor, the late Honorable Daniel T. Moi, Kenya's Second President. To showcase his appreciation and encourage students, Professor Chepkilot concluded the ceremony by awarding certificates to all participating students and staff.
