Rev. Dr. Stephen Mbugua New Vice Chancellor at The Catholic Univercity of Eastern Africa

Rev. Prof. Stephen Mbugua has been appointed to take over as the new Vice Chancellor of CUEA. He will assume office effective 1st of October 2018.

Rev. Prof. Stephen Mbugua, who hails from the Catholic Diocese of Nakuru, Kenya was appointed as the new Vice Chancellor at the conclusion of 19th AMECEA Plenary Assembly which took place between 13th and 23rd July 2018 in Addis Ababa. The announcement was made by the Outgoing Chairman of AMECEA, H.E Berhaneyesus D. Cardinal Souraphiel, Archbishop of Addis Ababa.

He takes over from Prof. Justus Mbae, who is finishing his mandate at the end of September having served the University since May 5th, 2016. This gives the University a two (2) month period for effective transition and handover. Until his appointment, Rev Prof. Mbugua was Vice-Chancellor Designate of Tangaza University College which is a constituent college of CUEA.  He holds a Doctorate in Educational Psychology from Egerton University and he brings to CUEA 20 years of extensive experience and knowledge in management and leadership of Kenyan tertiary education.

At the same plenary, Rt. Rev Charles Kasonde, Bishop of Solwezi, Zambia was elected as Chairman of AMECEA. In this position, he also assumes the role of Chancellor at CUEA.

With this transition, the University management is confident of a stronger CUEA that will continue to offer quality programmes for innovative and marketable graduates into the future.

CUEA, a chartered private international University with a Catholic hallmark, was established in 1984 by the Association of Member Episcopal Conferences in Eastern Africa (AMECEA). AMECEA plenary comprises of Catholic Bishops of Episcopal Conferences of Eritrea, Ethiopia, Malawi, Kenya, Tanzania, Sudan/South Sudan, Uganda, Zambia and the affiliate members of Djibouti and Somalia.



The CUEA fraternity held a mass and a luncheon on Thursday June 14, 2018 to celebrate and bid farewell to Prof. C. Nyamiti.

Rev. Prof. Charles Nyamiti was born in 1931, among three brothers and four sisters, to Mzee Theophilus Chambi Chambigulu and Mama Helen Nyasolo, (both Late) belonging to the Wanyamwezi of Tanzania.

Prof. C. Nyamiti was ordained a Catholic priest in 1962. His vocation to priesthood remains the rationale behind his Catholicism in his writings with bias towards emphasis on magisterial instructions/guidelines, Tradition (at times more highlighted than the Bible), scholasticism/classical elements intertwined with Patrology, and appeal to papal authority. Soon after his ordination, Nyamiti went to study between1963 and 1969 at Louvain University in Belgium. It was here that he graduated with a PhD in Systematic/dogmatic theology and a certificate in Music Theory and Piano. He then went to Vienna where he studied Cultural Anthropology and Music Composition graduating with another PhD and licentiate respectively. From 1976 to 1981, he was a Professor at Kipalapala Senior Seminary in Tanzania and a co-worker in some neighbouring parishes. In 1983, C. Nyamiti moved to Nairobi to at the establishment of the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA) where he served till his retirement at the age 87years. Owing to the foregoing, Nyamiti is a globally recognised scholar.

Prof. C. Nyamiti is among the proud founding scholars of CUEA where he has served for the last 34 years. He became full professor of Systematic/Dogmatic Theology and merited the attribute of outstanding resource person in the Anglophone bloc of African thinkers. He remains Professor Emeritus at CUEA.

A most admirable trait in Nyamiti is his choice to spend his career teaching in Africa, resisting the drive to the West that has seen Africa lose so many of its best “brains.” In his love for Africa and African theology, he voluntarily opted to settle in the then Catholic Higher Institute of Eastern Africa (CHIEA) which has since then grown to become a reputable international university - CUEA, a unique university rightly renowned for African theology. A great scholar is known not only by one’s publications but also through the students one has moulded and formed. Nyamiti’s pedagogy is specifically rooted in African world-view and Christianity as he mentors the young minds. Professor Nyamiti is an author of more than 56 books. More than 20 Dissertations has been written about his ideas and writings and certainly numerous Theses.
