The Spoken Arts & Debate Society (SADS) Wraps Up the Spring Semester at Strathmore University in Triumph
Variety best defines the latest edition of the Mashujaa Open Tournament. Hosted at Strathmore University on April 2-3, the debate championship brought together almost 20 universities in Kenya to compete and show off their verbal prowess.

The Society also took part in the tournament, fielding Bryan Muchesia, Mariam Rajabu, Joshua Wambugu in the Novice category, where the team emerged as 1st runners up.
Through the guidance of our club patron, Dr. Quin Juma, SADS seeks to not only achieve proper articulation in speech, but also arm USIU-Africa community a global recognition in the debate society.
