Dedan Kimathi University of Technology among the first to hold a virtual graduation amid Coronavirus pandemic

The Coronavirus pandemic has turned the world upside down. Wearing of masks, social distancing and quarantines are the new normal.

Due to the spread of the novel Coronavirus globally, school years have been disrupted and as much many students are homeschooling and the future of those set to graduate is uncertain following different travel restristictions.

This is why the Dedan Kimathi University of Technology, a public university in Nyeri, Kenya is planning to conduct a virtual graduation ceremony.

This is according to a memo the university has sent out to students in preparation for the 9th graduation ceremony scheduled for the 8th of May 2020. The virtual ceremony which is in accordance with the government’s directives to help curb the spread of the deadly virus will be streamed on the University’s social media platforms.

The class of 2020 are expected to make all the necessary arrangements in preparation for the ceremony apart of physically attending this monumental event that they have been waiting for, for years.

The institution will allow graduands to hire graduation gowns at a small fee for private ceremonies after the pandemic.

As reported by The Sauce recently, an American high school hosted drive-through graduation due to the virus.
