UoN Students Can Wear A Temporary Smile After Former Fierce SONU Chair Joins Fight

University of Nairobi's vice chancellor Prof Stephen Kiama threw his weight behind the University council's plan to increase fee and scrapping certain courses offered in the university. Fees for students pursuing bachelor of medicine (MBCHB) and bachelor of engineering courses were increased to ksh 3 million and 1 million respectively.

The announcement has since caused outrage among students and parents who claim instead of the university lowering the fees in this hard economic times it is increasing.

UoN students can however now wear a temporary smile after the former fierce Students Organisation of Nairobi University (SONU) chair now Embakasi East Member of Parliament Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino promised to join their fight.

"The University of Nairobi fee increment must be fought ruthlessly. I will join the fight to the bitter end" Babu has said.

This is coming after demonstrations that were organised by SONU leaders were quickly stopped by the police as the leaders went behind bars.

During Babu Owino's time at UoN SONU, the university was widely known as the mother of demos as the slightest of provocations threw the students to Nairobi streets.
