Details of top public and private universities can now be revealed.

The latest Webometrics ranking of world universities has named University of Nairobi, Kenyatta, Egerton, Moi and Jomo Kenyatta as the best five public universities in Kenya.

Mount Kenya, Strathmore, Catholic University of Eastern Africa, United States International University (USIU) and Daystar are ranked the best private institutions.

The University of Nairobi (UoN) is the best university in East Africa and position eight in the continent.

It is also among the top 1,000 best universities in the world, after it was ranked position 990.

The Webometrics ranking focused on 11,995 universities across the world.

MAJOR REFORMS

UoN vice chancellor Peter Mbithi said the university is embarking on major reforms to improve quality of teaching that will see its rankings improve in future.

“We are keen at ensuring that we focus on research and training of our lecturers in different fields to ensure they transfer the best skills to students,” he said.

UoN is followed by Kenyatta University (position 17 in Africa and 1,596 in the world), Egerton University (21 in Africa and 1,881 worldwide), Moi University (22 in Africa and 1,951 in the world) and Jomo Kenyatta (39 in Africa and 2,767 globally).

Maseno comes in sixth in Kenya and ranks position 81 in Africa and 4,126 in the world.

Strathmore is the best private university and the seventh best university in the country.

Catholic University of Eastern Africa is the second best private university and the ninth best in Kenya followed by USIU, which was position 10 in the country.

Daystar University was the fourth best private university and number 11 in the country, while Mount Kenya University was ranked fifth among private universities and number 13 in the country.

TOP BEST UNIVERSITIES

In December last year, the top five universities were also ranked among the top best universities in a ranking conducted by University Ranking Academic Performance.

Harvard University is ranked as the best university in the world, followed by Stanford University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Oxford University and University of California Berkeley.

In Africa, University of Cape Town is the best university after it was ranked number 272 in the world.

It was followed by University of Witwatersrand (445), University of Pretoria (449), Stellenbosch University (496) and University of Kwazulu Natal (624), all from South Africa.

In East Africa, University of Nairobi was ranked as the best university and eighth in Africa, followed by Makerere University which was number 11 in the continent.

Webometrics only measured the extent to which universities use the internet to spread, transfer and exchange knowledge.

It does not give its raw data and analytical parameters.

Students wishing to use its findings to make decisions on courses or which universities to join would be best advised to use multiple rankings which consider other factors including quality of faculty, research output and alumni success.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Love At First Sight?

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
