Kenyatta University politician and businessman Sammy Owino has added his voice in the ongoing disquiet in the University Student leadership ranks. Mr Owino, who is positioning himself for SONU leadership has asked the de facto Students Organization of Nairobi University (SONU) Opposition leader Mr OCS Rangira and the Students’ Association of Technical University of Kenya (SATUK) Chairman Mr Papa Ragot to respect the SONU Chairman Mr Babu Owino.
Speaking to Magazine Reel, Mr Owino said that the ongoing wrangles both in SONU and Kenya University Students Organization (KUSO) are uncalled for and a plan to disrespect the current leadership. This comes just days after Mr Ragot lamented over media blackout in airing the grievances of Engineering students pointing an acccusing finger to the flamboyant SONU and KUSO leader Babu Owino.
“Raphael Ragot must know that Babu Owino is the KUSO leader,” Sammy Owino said, adding that “he (Babu) can therefore speak on behalf of the Kenyan Campus students fraternity. Ragot is under Babu”

After falling out with Babu Owino, OCS Rangira, a steadily rising SONU leader also got to get it from Sammy Owino. Ragira was arrested and charged in court over the past week. Unlike on usual occassions, SONU leader Babu Owino did not rush to his rescue.
Mr Owino said that he wouldnt be able to support a person (Ragira) whose main aim was to make living in Nairobi University students hostel a hell for his electorate. A student Mr Geoffrey Mosiria stirred up the conversation when he claimed that their Chairman had alluded with another student known as George Okinda Fabian to come up with a false accusation against Mr Ragira.
