Having followed up and written about a number of university elections, I was shocked by the manner in which University of Nairobi Admin working in cohorts with elections board decided to arrive at Antony Manyara as the UNSA Chair (UNSA was formerly known as SONU).
Threats from the Administration and Way Forward
You will be threatened with suspension and expulsion. But is education so dear, or peace so sweet that it has to be purchased at the price of democracy, freedom and justice? Forbid it!
Liberty and democracy are truly expensive and can even cost your life but those who stand for nothing fall for any little thing. And therefore University of Nairobi students should not agree to fall for the little Antony Manyara.
The actions of evicting the admin mole Antony Manyara will require some pain. That is certain. But always remember that to allow Antony Manyara to continue enjoying the sit he got illegitimately would be far more disastrous in the long run.
Yes, all protests causes disruption—but time is short if comrades are to retain confidence in the student elections. And any comrade who see a handshake or diplomacy as a solution to this problem should consider himself/herself guilty of treason towards the great union, and of an act of disloyalty towards comrades.
Manyara sympathizers, Admin moles and cowards will cry, Peace! Peace!, but there should be no peace until Manyara leaves.
