St. Paul’s University in Partnership with the Ministry of Health, Nursing Council of Kenya, Medical Benevolence Foundation (MBF) and Christian Health Association of Kenya (CHAK) will host the second Nursing Leadership Conference on 13th and 14th June 2019. The two day conference themed “Building Capacity for Nursing and Midwifery Leadership in Africa” Leading Change, Achieving Universal Health Coverage, Achieving Health; aims at empowering healthcare professionals like nurse and midwives to enable them play a leading role and maximize their contributions in tackling major health challenges and achieving Universal Health Coverage.

This is in line with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3 that calls upon governments to “ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages”.

Although the number of institutions offering training in nursing has increased remarkably for the majority of developing nations, there is still inadequate quality training especially that which prepares nurses for leadership roles. There is need to improve training offered to nurses and midwives to enhance impartation of knowledge, skills, competencies and judgement to handle the complexity of health problems in the world today.

Educating, empowering and supporting nurses and midwives to be leaders of change will ensure they have a more prominent voice in health policy-making, will be recruited into leadership positions, and will practice to their fullest potential; hence creating better health outcomes for their countries. Equally, there is need to empower nurses to undertake quality research and to integrate the same into practice to improve the quality of healthcare outcomes. Nurses need to be supported to lead, learn and strengthen their profession. Universal Health Coverage will not be achieved unless nursing is strengthened to own its central role and position in healthcare systems.

The conference activities will include keynote presentations, plenary speakers, breakout workshops and resolutions. It will feature diverse sets of speakers including prominent practitioners and thought leaders in nursing and midwifery as well as health care experts from Africa and the United States of America.

The climax of one of the milestones in Dr. John Ndavula’s scholarly works was realized during a colorful launch of the book “Social Media and Political Campaigns in Kenya” on Tuesday 17th July, 2018. The colorful event dubbed “Feast of Words” was graced by St. Paul’s University’s top management among them the Rev. Dr. Samuel Kobia, the Chancellor and Prof. Joseph Galgalo, the Vice Chancellor; and eminent scholars among them Prof. Jesse Mugambi, a professor of Philosophy and Religious Studies at the University of Nairobi, Dr. Lydia Mwaniki, a renowned author on gender issues, The Rt. Rev. Dr. Joseph Wandera, the Bishop ACK Diocese of Mumias and Dr. Robert S. Wafula of the Borderless Press.

Dr. John Ndavula, the Head of the Department of Communication Studies and editor at the Borderless Press, attributes his success to the support accorded to him by his family, friends and fellow scholars.

The book gives an insight into the relationship between Digital Networking Technologies and contemporary Kenyan Politics: a relatively new concept in the Kenyan Political landscape compared to the Western Democracies. As a matter of fact, it is the first comprehensive study of impact of social media on politics in East Africa. The author seeks to shed light on the extent Social Media usage affects Kenyan Political Campaign, the underpinnings of social media adoption for the political campaign, the implications of Social Media use for Democracy. A comparison of campaigns in the 90's and emerging trends in today's setting wouldn’t go unmentioned.

In his conclusion, the author empathizes that social media plays a transformative role in political campaigns in Kenya, and leveraging on its potential and ubiquity might help Kenyans to build more stable democratic structures.

Installation of the second university Chancellor, Prof. Margaret Kobia

The St. Paul’s University fraternity on Friday 5th October, celebrated installation of the second Chancellor, Prof. Margaret Kobia, the Cabinet Secretary for Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs. The ceremony was coupled with the university’s 27th Graduation Ceremony during which Degrees were conferred and Diplomas awarded to more than 2000 graduands.

Prof. Margaret Kobia took over the mantle from the outgoing Chancellor, Rev. Dr. Samuel Kobia whose tenure was characterized by tremendous growth of the university to world class standards in various aspects. We are proud of you sir, may the good Lord bless you richly!

Prof. Margaret Kobia brings in a wealth of experience in academia and administration whose blend with St. Paul’s Values, Vision and able Management will definitely grow the institution to greater heights.

Her predecessor presented instruments of power (Mace, Flag, Seal, Charter and Logo) during a colorful ceremony graced by the University Council, trustees, partners and several government officials. While delivering her maiden speech, she encouraged the graduands to not just sit back and wait for opportunities to present themselves but go out there and use the knowledge acquired to create opportunities and transform the world. She also encouraged the congregants to embrace servant leadership and seek mentors who can nurture them, and are open to mutual sharpening of each another.

“Karibu Sana” Madam Chancellor.
