Comrades power almost to the grave
Kenyan universities had great future and hope some times back in the late 1990s up to early 2000 where you will get many leaders starting to explore this political arena as early as in campus.
This made sure that we have some few individuals who aspire to lead kenya in future pass through campus politics which gave a distinction between a leader and a joker as wel as betrayers.
To mention a few, leaders like Tom mboya, His excellence the retired president Mwai kubaki,His excellence Raila odinga and His excellence Arap samoe Ruto started being leaders while in University
That time the comrade power was real in the fact that student leaders had an opportunity to express their displeasure with the administration involved.
If you speak about that in our today universities you risk of being sent home indefinitely before you finish your critic against your university administration.
Thay makes me and many fellows out there to draw a great distinction between the 1990s University and the current University.
Nowadays many say current University is like an improved high school where you pass through high school rules that have only bein improvised through unscrupulous means to fit to University curriculum.
People delegeted duties to serve comrades efficiently and with care end up misusing and dumping comrades to unnecessary conditions.One University student mentioned this, “being a university material is not by chance it is by merit”, i saw this being a good argument that should be a lime light to University VCs.
No wonder nowadays we have corrupt leaders emerging from the current University curriculum. This is because this person was not left to freely express his concerns and in turn be corrected through wise diplomatic means.
