Presented at the Ali A. Mazrui International Symposium, Southern Sun, Westlands, Nairobi, July 16, 2016.

Let me begin by thanking the organizers for the singular honor of presenting closing remarks at this important symposium. It has given me the opportunity to meet many old friends, some that I haven't seen for many years.

I wish to thank all of you who participated in the demonstration this morning. It was truly an impressive event. We showed the world the real character and quality of USIU-Africa. It was peaceful, powerful, and even joyful, a model on how to exercise democratic and constitutional rights responsibly. I felt immensely proud of being a member of this extraordinary university.

The Commission for University Education (CUE) will undertake a site visit to USIU-Africa to carry out an Institutional Quality Assurance Audit from 9.00 am Tuesday 12th April, 2016 to Thursday, 14th April, 2016.
