The University of Science and Technology’s media and communications society was launched on 6 September at the campus.

Speaking during the launch, founder and president of media and communications society, Eline Nyau, said the society will form as a platform that will produce opportunities for the students to polish their skills, network themselves in the industry and at the same time have fun while also fulfilling their passion and love for media.

She further added that the society will offer refuge for media and communications students in whatever area they are interested in.

“We aim to promote inclusivity and facilitate personal development by connecting media and communications studies with industry professionals and real world opportunities,” she said.

Nyau also said through social events, educational support and networking opportunities, they aim to empower students with practical skills and experience to complement their studies.

“You know great things start with a vision and our vision is for this society to become the society of media fields at Nust and off campus as well,” she said.

Delivering the keynote address, Social Security Commission, communications manager, Unomengi Kauapirura shared her journey with students.

Kauapirura urged students to remember communication as an episode which is made up of words of powerful things which must only be in the hands of capable and competent people.

“Words are powerful weapons and change the way people think about and treat others. Only if you have understood this, would you be able to understand how powerful communication can be,” she said.

She also encouraged students to take advantage of different opportunities to get exposed to journalistic writing.

“This will help you later in your corporate communications positions. What is needed now in the job market are those who can write across different mediums. Having a better accent won’t help you any better in these corporate positions,” she said.

Kauapirura congratulated the society for having embarked on this journey to create such platforms for their fellow students. She added that it will boost its status especially for those unfortunate people who have less regard towards communication practitioners.

Also speaking at the event was award winning director, writer, producer and actor Joel Haikali, who said that as potential media practitioners one needs to be familiar with the status core of the field you are interested. It is very important that you understand what has been done before you.

“In other words can you really write if you do not read? As one should practice to give your voice that depth of understanding,” he said.



Haikali urged the students to question what value they are adding after graduation and understand the status core of media and communications. When we do our job right our work should inspire people not only to face another day.
