On 4th July 1970, a boy and a girl entered the gates of The University of Nairobi hungry for knowledge. 50 years later the boy and the girl returned to their alma mater from where the once drank from the Fountain of Knowledge. The girl Dr. Betty Gikonyo and the boy Dr. Frank Njenga came back 50 years later representing their Medical Class of 1970 to commemorate their Golden Jubilee and give back to their alma mater.
The two were received by the Vice-Chancellor Prof. Stephen Kiama, DVC Academic Affairs Prof. Julius Ogengo and the current Chairman UoNAl Alumni Association Mr. Isaac Awuondo.
The boy and girl together with their classmates of medicine class 1970 pledged to offer a full six year Scholarship to 5 needy students pursuing Bachelor Medicine and Surgery. The Scholarship is worth Ksh. 6 Million.
The Vice-Chancellor appreciated this great gesture and pledged to continue supporting efforts by the Alumni Association to give back to their alma mater.
On his part the Chairman UONAA encouraged more alumni to come back and support their alma mater.
