Sonu chairman wins back seat
Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino is back at the helm of the Students Organisation of Nairobi University.
In elections held on Saturday, the second year law student got 10,225 votes with his closest opponent, Philbert Kong’ola, managing 3,000 votes.
Babu made history by becoming the first student to be elected twice for the same position.
He won amidst a chaotic election and highly charged campaigns.
University management tried and failed to bar the former ODM aspirant for the Westlands Parliamentary seat from vying for the second time.
Through his lawyer, LSK chair Eric Mutua, Babu managed to stop the UoN administration from amending the Constitution which could have barred him from contesting.
Speaking moments after being declared winner, Babu said his win was expected since he had no competition.
Irene Kendi and Linda Gwantai were elected vice-chairperson and finance secretary respectively.
