Tribute by The Committee of Chancellors of Public Universities of Kenya

“Prof. Juma, leading a team from Harvard, worked closely with the Committee of Chancellors of Public Universities of Kenya for the first convention on University Education in Kenya in January 2017. He gave a powerful presentation from his hospital bed through video call. Science, technology, innovation and his humanistic nature blended through the presentation. He was a global citizen, and wished university education in Kenya and Africa to acquire a global nature. The collaboration between African universities and Harvard, which he tirelessly worked on, will remain his signature. May Calestous continue to inspire the academic fraternity by his simplicity, humility, selflessness and the spirit of daring to dream the impossible.”
