While adhering to the set guidelines set by the Ministry of health, there was a ceremonial cake cutting followed by a luncheon with the members who were invited to the occasion.
Incoming Rotaract Bahari President Nelly Wanjiru told Gilitics Media that “it was a successful e-installation and congratulations to the new president of Rotaract JKUAT Pwani Central and the appointed Board of Directors of both Rotaract Bahari and Rotaract JKUAT Pwani central.”
