The Center for Social Justice and Ethics (CSJE), in collaboration with Harmony Institute on Saturday 23th Feb, 2019, hosted an event named: Abrahamic Table Dinner. This was in an effort to promote interreligious dialogue for promotion of just and peaceful coexistence and addressing the problem of religious radicalization. The Center hosted about 100 participants from the Harmony Institute fraternity and academic environment, i.e, students and lecturers from CSJE and other faculties.
The topic discussed was "Story of Joseph in Abrahamic Religions: Reflections in Contemporary Life" and Rev. Dr. Opongo, Director of Hekima University College, and Sheikh Ibrahim Lethome, Secretary General of Center for Sustainable Conflict Resolution, gave powerful presentations. Both presenters took the participants through the Bible and Quran stories on Joseph and related different religious perspectives of the story to contemporary African social, cultural, economic, political, religious and environmental stories.
Among the contemporary issues highlighted in an effort to do contextual analysis were; family divisions, sibling rivalry, betrayal, violence and conflict, economic management, slavery and human trafficking, interracial and interreligious harmony, refugees, unrighteousness, unjust imprisonment, drought, food insecurity, control of anger, patience and being hopeful, forgiveness and reconciliation, among others.
Both presenters underscored, among many lessons, One Main Lesson: God’s providence. And that out of a bad situation something good may come, for “What you meant for evil God meant for good.” Gen. 50: 20.
Fr. Peter Mbaro, the Director CSJE observed that the lesson learnt from the interaction is that religious people have more that they can share to build unity and promote coexistence among people.

The Cardinal Otunga Secretariat received a further specific donation of Kshs. 190,000/- for other two needy students bringing our total cash Scholarship award to Kshs. 922,000/-.
The Cardinal Otunga Memorial lecture and Scholarship fundraising is one of the University’s major Annual events since 2005. Last year the University held the 15th Cardinal Otunga Memorial Mass, Annual Lecture and Scholarship Fundraising on September 7, 2018 guided by theme “Restoring Human Dignity in Perspective of the SoG Maurice Cardinal Otunga”.
The Memorial Mass main celebrant was Rt. Rev. Paul Kariuki, Bishop Catholic Diocese of Embu and Memorial Lecture was delivered by Rev. Fr. Charles Kinyua, Director Radio Waumini. The Guest fundraiser for the Cardinal Otunga Scholarship was Mr. Andrew Wanga, a CUEA Alumni.
Speaking at the official awarding ceremony, on February 21, 2019 the Acting Chair of the Scholarship Committee, Mr. Peter Mbevo thanked Dr. Johnson Mavole, a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences for his desire to better the University efforts to support needy students which yielded the sum of Kshs 280,000/-.
Mr. Mbevo urged those intending to make better the Cardinal Otunga Scholarship course, to join hands for ‘true justice in our society as we invest for our future generations’.
He added that the Cardinal Otunga Scholarship planning committee still appeals for support and interventions to our ‘reach-out efforts in reliving this good legacy left by one of our founding fathers, the Servant of God, Maurice Michael Cardinal Otunga’.
This year, the Mass, Memorial Lecture and Fundraising event is scheduled for September 20, 2019. We appeal to Countries in AMECEA region, our Faculties, Centre, Institutes and all functional areas to plan and participate generously to make this program a success.
We thank you for your generous contribution and continued commitment to making the Cardinal Otunga Scholarship a reality in CUEA.
Last year, the Ministry of Education reported that Narok had a high teenage pregnancy rate at 40% against the National prevalence of 18 %. In view of this, CUEA has got into a Community Service engagement with Narok County to work with the community to see how the rates could be lowered.
During our Valentine’s Day Celebration on February 14, the First lady of Narok County, Mrs. Sarah Tunai visited CUEA where she made a call to the university students and staff to help and work with her in saving a generation by ensuring that girls complete their education and are saved from the harmful cultural practice of Female Genital Mutilation that leads many of the girls to early marriages and pregnancies.
Mrs, Tunai expressed confidence that a partnership with CUEA will go a long way in turning the fortunes of the girls and boys. She said she believed young people have a capacity to talk to each other and positively influence each other to achieve success in life. She made this challenge to CUEA students in the spirit of ‘Love and Beyond’ which was the theme of the Valentine’s day celebration. Our students can reach out to the young girls and boys of Narok County.
Alongside Mrs Tunai was a young journalism student who shared with CUEA students the challenges she encountered growing up in Narok County and how good Samaritans mentored and enabled her escape FGM and successfully complete her primary and secondary education and now she is completing her university education. The young lady said she believed that a peer to peer approach is crucial in empowering young girls to stay in school and get a career path going for them.
We have also engaged with the College of Health Sciences in conducting Community Health Programmes as well as a Medical Aid camp in the next few days in the County.
