Deputy Chief Justice of Kenya Philomena Mwilu visited Swaminarayan Vidyamandir Randesan on January 7, 2023. Philomena Mbete Mwilu is a Kenyan lawyer and judge, who has served as the assistant Chief Justice of Kenya and Vice President of the Supreme Court of Kenya. She was welcomed by the students with a Siddhant Gaan, and was then given a tour of the campus. She was shown the interactive classrooms, Atal Tinkering Lab, and Hostel, and was explained about various activities being carried out in school.
In her speech, Justice Mwilu spoke about the importance of education, hard work, and discipline. She said that education is empty unless it has morality with integrity, and that the education that the students are getting here is going to mould them into responsible citizens. She also said that no matter what grade you get, you must have a good character, because getting an A grade with zero character is useless and getting D with character is fulfilling.
Justice Mwilu also spoke about her own struggles in life, and how she overcame them. She said that she never gave up on her dreams, and that she wanted the students to be inspired by her story. She said, "I want you to be better than who I am."
Justice Mwilu's speech was well-received by the students and staff of Swaminarayan Vidyamandir Randesan. It was an inspirational session that will stay with them for many years to come.
