COVID-19 – Universities demand vaccination certificates

The University of Rwanda (UR) and Mount Kenya University Kigali Campus have requested all staff and students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to be allowed onto the respective campuses, writes Aurore Teta Ufitiwabo for The New Times.

“This is to inform all staff and students in Remera based campus that with effect from Monday, 27 September, only students and staff that have been vaccinated so far will be allowed into campus,” reads a notice issued last weekend by the UR Remera Campus.

Speaking to The New Times, the head of corporate communications at UR, Ignatius Kabagambe, confirmed the development, saying that they have started with all their campuses in Kigali before they extend it to other campuses “very soon”. He added that Rwanda Biomedical Centre is already in touch with their up-country campuses to get the numbers of people who are not vaccinated yet, for them to plan and vaccinate them.
