Student politics! Where does one begin?
It seems they died a natural death and when they ressurect (the return of the living dead), we see burnt buildings which makes me doubt our education system- does it liberate us or tie us still to our native ‘tabula rasa’ tendencies? Whats more, it follows that one or two students have to succumb to bullet wounds fired by Kiganjo graduates in case of any student unrest- and…kwani they were resting???

But not to worry, there still lies hope that one time, sanity will reign, if indeed, this is insanity.
And why do i speaketh of such when am belching from proceeds of on-going campaigns about campus?

ahem! forget that…lets just focus on the kids on campus, suddenly turned ambitious because they have dated this popular chick, or that one…or has heard that a few ladies like him – and probably has been the subject of yente in chick’s hostels…
Jeez! – the springboard that some campaigns are being launched on! I wish the admin gave us guys of media an inch of a chance to unwrap them polite and proper, without fear, fever or favour -oh how am relishing the coming days to try new tipsy tricks on campus media!!

Well well…after yester easter celebrations, the campus was awash with posters- politicians or wonnabes, pleading for votes, some looking already hopeless on their pictures – and today, they were to lay bare their ‘manifestos’.
Wait, let me tell you sthng, there is something not very exciting about private uni’s politics – Few guys tend to be interested in student politics and the whole rest have given up to the fate of ‘kukaliwa’ and it pales like the shadow of a shadow of what it should be. But on the same, there has been great and keen interest on the on going campaigns… previously, all you could hear was the admin this, these leaders are puppets – the fingers were always pointing…but si they have the power to vote, you may say.
Well, what with the ‘screening’ of the candidates by a non-conforming dean? Last year, there was such wierd whispers on this screening that some guys were disqualified on grounds of ‘having girlfriends!!!!’
i followed it up quickly with a letter to the editor titled ‘ No girlfriends please, we’re XX-ians.’

Oh, don’t you like me? LoL

Oohh..the drama here, i should start a blog in this campus life; its a microcosm on its own.
So..as hizi hullaballoos ‘catch fire’, some posts are clear on who will win as there are the perenial losers, out right give aways and the kawa swing votes.

as usgaizofmedia (jjournalist.wordpress.com) we’ll simply parade the new team snap them fotos and after one year, present the before and after snapshots— one aim is clear; they’ve gone there to E.A.T!
ask me.
May the candi who shares his candie with this caddie please win!

  1. i thought i was the only one tired of private uni politics…..those guys do nada!!they just follow whatever their told mpaka u wonder whats the point of a student council

  2. I never followed anybody’s direction in my days as Student leader in Private university. In fact, I led a revolution that demanded the release of the charter and statues that granted the University its status. Copies were made and placed in the library and students were thenceforth able to read for themselves their rights, privileges and responsibilities. My colleagues in the student council just had to follow me on the warring path.
    That said, yes, student politics in the private universities stink! They tried to silence me with a scholarship but I weathered. many idiots fell along the way… So I say, it is all about personal values!
    And did I say that I never submitted myself for nomination? I was proposed against my will but when voted for almost unanimously, I took the challenge…
    So what are your values, that is, if you have any!

  3. oh we wait. heh. i did not know that having a girlfriend is a most unchristian thing. wait i go dump mine. *dead. i keels self 😀 *

  4. Hehehe, sounds like fun!! At least you guys have the proper political satisfiction (sic) of a vote, for us we have ambassadors hand-picked by the uni president after having met the right requirements (Read: Correct boob to ass ratio with no mention of intellectual measurements or any leadership portfolio)

    Post an update to let us know what happens, m’kay?
