A JKUAT students’ union AGM this past week turned into one of those kanjo seats-throwing battles. On Wednesday, January 27, the JKUAT Students’ Union (JKUSO) held their first ever Annual General Meeting which turned into a battle following a disagreement between satellite campus leaders against their main campus counterparts.
The function proceeded smoothly until Jomo Eric – the JKUSO President – took to the podium and sought to introduce the various satellite campus representatives. A couple of minutes later, chaos erupted in the audience as a section of JKUAT students felt their President was not respected by satellite leaders
“Here are the facts; Jomo Eric was not elected by the public. He went unopposed, he could have chosen to crap on our faces because he owed us nothing, but, instead, he chose to serve us. Therefore we cannot tolerate any disrespect towards our President. We shall not allow it,” stated Patrick Ombewa, a JKUAT-Juja campus student.
Campus Vibe could not reach Jomo for comments on the same.
