PC, Wambui spice up Pivot Point graduation

By | Jan 31st 2011 | 2 min read


With witty punch-lines and humorous rhetoric, popular businesswoman and political activist Mary Wambui spiced up an already colourful Pivot Point graduation ceremony held in Nairobi last Friday. The chief guest was Nairobi Provincial Commissioner Njoroge Ndirangu.

"You know who I am… But today, I am just here to witness this great occasion, not to do politics (sic)," she told the cheering crowd. Roars of "sema yote mama" rent the air as the crowd egged her on.

At that moment, she paused and with a smile playing on her lips said, "Can we pray?"

The ceremony, which was witnessed by hundreds saw 312 students graduate in respective disciplines among them beauty and hairdressing. A number of the graduands were from Uganda, Tanzania, Sudan, Zambia and Ethiopia.

"The graduands will join over 7,500 others who have gone through Pivot Point and are now running successful businesses as far as Denmark, Finland, Dubai and in the United States," said Nancy Wettstein, the director of the beauty college, which also organises the Miss Universe pageant in Kenya.

"As we turn 24, we have the joy to announce the launch of Urembo Hair and Beauty School whose objective will be to provide a hands-on education for the under privileged," she noted.

The event witnessed delightful performances by celebrated artistes that even the PC could not resist as he joined the crowd in song and dance.

It was pomp and glitz as beauties, among them former Miss Universe crown holders and finalists, graced the podium with a catwalk show, showcasing creative hair and fashion styles.

Pivot Point is the home to celebrated model and former Miss Universe crown holder Rachael Marete, now a top TV host attached a Los Angeles based TV station.
