The Adventist University of Africa broke ground for the new Multipurpose Complex (MPC) at a ceremony on 23rd November 2016. The state-of-the-art KES 220 million ($ 2.2M) facility incorporates the latest technology, needed teaching/learning environments with twelve classrooms and two lecture theaters, a 1000-capacity multipurpose hall, a pavilion at the back end, administrative offices, and functional terraces.


MPC GroundbreakingThe University Chancellor, Dr. Blasious Ruguri, had an infectious excitement that caused rhythmic and joyful ululations to emanate from the audience at the Ceremony. He spoke on behalf of the other Division Presidents of Africa who are partners in the enhancement of the functions and mission of AUA.

Several commendations were particularly extended to the Strategic Development Partners (SDP) for their leadership and mobilization of resources for the construction of the new Complex. The SDP Chairperson, Dr. Phillip Rono, appreciated the efforts and cooperation of all the SDP members, the local churches in Kenya and encouraged all to help raise the remaining funds required of KES 25M.

The Vice Chancellor, Dr. Delbert Baker, acknowledged the significant contribution made by two donors who requested to remain anonymous. They had each contributed KES 100,000,000 ($ 1M) and KES 25,000,000 ($ 250,000) respectively. It is envisaged that the actual construction will begin in early 2017 and the project completion by 2018.

On behalf of the University Council, Eld. Jerome Habimana acknowledged the MPC as a special project especially in the way and means used to raise funds for the Complex. He also graciously thanked the SDP members and church members and encouraged all to continually support AUA.

On behalf of the deans, Dr. Daniel Ganu, acknowledged the necessity of having the Multipurpose Complex for it would serve the two schools, School of Postgraduate Studies and Theological Seminary. “This is not just a complex for infrastructural development but a centre of influence in and for Africa,” said Gemane Getteh, a Master of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies student from Liberia.

It will be strategically situated at the front of the Administration Building. Alongside the building and encircling the whole campus will be a beautifully leadership-themed park. The architect, engineers, and fellow contractors committed to an eco-friendly and environmentally conscious construction and development.

Indeed, as the dedication prayer was ably concluded by Dr. Zacchaeus Mathema “Oh, give thanks to the God of heaven! For His mercy endures forever” to AUA and all its endeavours.
