    My KCSE certificate bears the names Samuel Mwangi Kenemo, but the name Mwangi wasnt mentioned on my birth certificate since It given to me later after birth registration. When I went to collect my passport the name Mwangi was omitted and replaced by John, my father’s name. So my passport bears the name Samuel John Kenemo. Will that be a hinderance to my admission?

    • Richard says:

      Hallo Samwel! That won’t be the hindrance for your admission, but I would like to advise you to have the legal documents with the oath taken which will prove and show that all those names are yours.

    I was interested to join post graduate diploma in Human Resources
    But I was disappointed to be told that you are no longer offering that course bse you have always been receiving a minimum number of students,I would advice that you take the details of those come to enquire about that course i then once you have enough column you can still contact and start a class.Again its better to introduce as much as business courses in all levels.
