What is your name?
What position are you going for?
Why are you vying?
I believe in comradeship. I am in the race because of the comrades. Because i believe i should do something for them. To me its a calling, i have been called to serve. A leader is judged by the content of his character and not the color of his skin or the money he has nor his height. (smiling)
What is your principle stand?
Servant leadership. Focusing all of my energy, not on fighting the old but building the new.
Why servant leadership?
This institution has great minds, people who need to be served and not ruled or bossed around. People of great influence i do not want to mention names now. Ambitious comrades who would die to see this campus a better place. The difference between bosses and leaders is that bosses control while leaders serve. Servant hood is the only way to greatness.
Do you have a nickname?
I think so, they call me ”the windmill”
Because just like the mill turns wind into energy, i am able to turn my promise into action. That is why my brand name is ‘The Promise I Deliver’.
Do you have a favorite chairman?
No. I am yet to identify a serious servant leader. I will willingly work with the comrades choice.
What would you tell fellow aspirants?
Our campus needs true leaders, this is the time to stand for the right. this is not the time to get divided into cocoons. Instead lets work on uniting comrades. This is not the time to campaign on tribal basis. We are the country’s very best. The future leaders. Let our ideologies work for us without threat and coaxing, without tribalism and corruption. I detest tribal based politics. We can emulate Maasai Mara University who happen to have SOMU like us. They had very peaceful, non-tribal based elections.
