Africa International University

Africa International University (AIU) formerly Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (NEGST) came into being through the vision of the late Dr. Byang Kato of Nigeria. Dr. Kato died tragically in a swimming accident in Mombasa, Kenya, but before his death in December 1975, he recruited personnel and made arrangements for launching a francophone graduate school. This was established in Bangui, Central African Republic in 1977, and was granted a government charter to operate as a graduate school of theology granting its own degrees. The first class of four students began their studies in October 1983. In March 2011, NEGST was awarded a university charter by the government of Kenya and is now known as Africa International University. The university is found in Karen a suburb south west of Nairobi city centre.
