There was shock, disbelief, and doubt from the outcomes of the heavily contest university of Nairobi (UNSA) elections. This is after an unpopular man identified as Eddie Mwendwa Mutua was appointed and sworn in as the University of Nairobi Student leader.
Many students took on social media to ask about the eligibility and transparency of these elections. Questioning what happened to their favorite candidates such as Waban Kwach Ratego, Mwaura, and others who were popular. As it’s everyone knowledge that Eddie Mwendwa Mutua, who is a student in Parklands of law. Was unpopular to many students.
However, there are those who came out to congratulate Eddie Mwendwa Mutua. From his achievement and one of them is his uncle Mutula Kilonzo junior, senator of Makueni. Rumors also say that Eddie’s family and Kiama’s family are family friends and this is what led to Eddie being appointed to this position.
It appears that the seat has held by powerful men in this country. That is the likes of Miguna, Orengo, Babu Owino, Zack Kinuthia, and others. Is starting to lose its value of late.
The school administration has been suppressing justice by appointing unpopular leaders among students. And ignoring one aspect of democracy and that is the rule of the popular vote. Last year the likes of Ayoma were denied position only the seat to give to Ann Mruvya.
