Following the exit of Babu Owino from active SONU politics into the national politics, comrades at the University of Nairobi seemed to have been left orphaned and started pondering on their next move with regards to who should represent them.
However, this is no longer the case as many comrades have come forward to fill these big leadership shoes that Babu Owino had vacated upon being elected Embakasi East Member of Parliament.
Among these hopefuls is a young lady from Kirinyaga County who are already doing so much with her life and is now ready to dedicate her service to comrades.
When she first announced her candidature for SONU leadership, she was castigated and even blocked from accessing the largest Facebook Group for university students in Kenya “NEW COMRADES FORUM” for some time.
However, as Daphine Githuku continues to engage comrades and speak to the needs of the students, many students at UoN are slowly warming up to her and this has seen her being reinstated into the Facebook Group through which she communicates to students from time to time.
In her latest post on the group, Daphine has made a promise to comrades that she intends to keep once elected in the forthcoming SONU elections that are slated for early 2018.
In the post that has for the first time attracted more positive comments than the bashing and negative criticism that Daphine had previously received, she promises to leave a legacy in SONU as a student leader “whose services and relationship with comrades” goes beyond tribe, social class, and age.
“I want to make our university better than I Found it – For ourselves and generations to follow,” Dephine said in the post that was done on Sunday evening.
She said that her guiding principle is to leave the university a better place than she found it and called on the students to reflect hard on their pasts in order to move forward. It’s time we ask ourselves hard questions
“It’s time we ask ourselves hard questions, walk the talk and map a way forward,” Daphine indicated.
Finishing off in the proverbial political manner, Miss Githuku said “There’s Hope comrades, There’s Hope!”
