It gives me much pleasure in presenting the Annual Report and Accounts of the University of Nairobi for the year
ended 30th June 2008.
During the year under review the University realized a surplus of KShs. 124,674,898 as compared to a surplus of
KShs. 291,506,737 for the year 2006/2007. The cumulative deficit for the University as at 30th June 2008 was KShs
588,243,102 compared to the deficit of KShs. 712,918,000 as at 30th June 2007. The decline in financial performance
in the current year was mainly attributed by expansion of academic programmes and facilities, increase of personal
emoluments arising from the industrial court award, and the post election aftermath early in the year. As in the
previous years the additional expenditure was not matched by Government funding.
However despite these problems, the University continued with its tight financial controls in the management of the
available resources. The university intensified income-generating activities especially through its various campus
colleges as well as the subsidiary company, the University of Nairobi Enterprises and Services Limited (UNES).
Donor agencies and other governments continued to support the University of Nairobi. During the year under review,
a total of KShs. 627,190,710 compared to an amount of KShs. 594,274,975 for the year 2006/2007 was received for
The University continued with its mission of teaching and research. The students' total population in this period for
both undergraduate and postgraduate was 44,900.
On behalf of the University of Nairobi, I wish to take this opportunity to thank the government and our Donors for
financial support.
Finally, I would like to express my special thanks to the University community who worked tirelessly to ensure smooth
operation of this institution, especially attainment of ISO 9001 : 2000 Quality Management System.
