The Fund modalities were presented to them by the Former student leader, Elijah Oenga. The Alumni meeting that was chaired by interim chairman, Mr Evans Mosomi agreed to work out on their coming together to check out what is happening at their former University and how they can support back.
Previously at Parklands SDA Church, Present ueab Alumni praised the quality of education they received from Baraton and its relevancy and applicability in their daily activities.They challenged the SDA members saying its so unfortunate that they are pleading to Adventists to know know the value of Education they have.

While we open this new trimester, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Elijah Getui Oenga for facilitating the SABU seminar and for spear heading the Somesha Fund which is encouragingly materializing, I would also like to thank all other Alumni for the support they have offered and for the hope they are giving us; students.
