Zetech University Vice-Chancellor Prof. Edwin Wamukoya has urged High-School students from Ruiru sub-county to direct their energy in identifying and building on their future careers while still in school. He was speaking after a team from the University joined residents of Ruiru Sub-County in marking the Okoa Vijana Summit held at Ruiru Boys Secondary School on Friday August 29th (2014). Among other invited guests included a delegation of pastors from Ruiru and youths who came from as far as Nakuru County to attend the Event.
“We are what we are through the foundations we lay while still in the formative years of schooling. Therefore, it’s upon you to lead your path and choose your desired career as early as today. We can only advice you and give you directions, but it is you to invent your future”, explained Wamukoya.
The whole day event targeted High School students with areas of discussion being Drug Abuse, H.I.V&A.I.D.S and Career Choice better captured in the university’s mantra of Invent your future. The talk gifted the students with a rare opportunity to interact with top academicians from various universities and the clergy who are viewed by many as custodians of the moral codes of the society.
Zetech University team led by Prof. Wamukoya gave the students insights on their Journey towards post-secondary education, which included Campus life altogether with its pros and cons which he elaborated on highly.
The Oka Vijana campaign is an initiative of a collection of pastors from Ruiru Sub-County which aims at empowering the youth on career development and moral decency.
