"Wachana Nayo Kabisa" Babu Owino Breaks Silence After Learning What President Ruto Is Planning

Embakasi east constituency member of the national assembly Hon Babu Owino is not an impressed man this evening. The firebrand lawmaker is up in arms after learning of what president William Ruto is planning to do.

Reports indicate that president William Ruto plans to abolish and subsequently merge the university funding board, the Higher education loans board and the Tertiary and vocational education training authority (TVETA) to come up with one huge organization that will serve the entire sector.

According to Babu Owino, president William Ruto should just keep off and avoid restructuring HELB in any manner. He argues that many students come from very humble backgrounds and any attempt to interfere with HELB board is ill advised and counterproductive.

"President Ruto, maneno ya University HELB wachana nayo Kabisa (Leave the HELB board alone). Comrades come from very sorry backgrounds and only education will save them from the york of poverty. For we live in an hour of change and challenge, decade of hope and fear, in an age of both knowledge and ignorance. The greater our knowledge increases the greater our ignorance unfolds," he said.
