Much tension has engulfed multitude of students at karatina university at large since they might fail to partake in the coming exam which will take off as from 18th next month. Many endeavor to lounge most of their determinations towards exams, they lost hope after the university relent to open the student’s online portal to register their units.
The most affected students were from town and Itiati campus, this issue came to existence a time when students were instructed by the school to pay their dues early to a certain dateline after which the school portal was to be shut down and anyone who will be caught unregistered without a valid reason will be forced to differ his/her course. As to many who understand the university way of its plane violated the rules some saying they will open at that time, many are used to paying their fee just few days to exams. Unfortunately to their loss, the school regulation has altered to a very unfriendly dimension.
A group of class representatives mostly from town campus led by Mr. Okello and Toffic had been on the move to find out the way to save the most afflicted comrades. Their determination made them to approach the students governing council (SGC) but nothing came out of it. Ominous complains sprouted from many saying that the SGC is unfit to solve and save their fellow comrades despite being elected after vowing to delegate their duties in serving the comrades. The general SGC secretary said that the issue will be solved but to their shock, no move was being made until last Thursday when the exam time-table was issued leading to development of severe tension to many since no move had been made, and at the moment they are not registered online,
The whatsapp groups containing classreps, their last suggestion came out to collect all the names of the unregistered students and man for themselves to face the administration, the activities went on and all the names were collected, indeed a good number of student had failed to register their units, and their fate was obvious from the institution, not to be given exams card which lead to automatically unsuitable to sit for the exams. On Tuesday 29th March, a good number of students arrived at main campus and headed to the DVC’s office with the intention of the same issue.
They presented their issue to the DVC who responded positively seeing there desperate hearts and promised to work on it before the exams, she assured them, that all students will partake in the exams sessions provided that they have zero fee balance, the DVC continued to say that those who are not registered to present their details to their respective HOD’s through class reps before today, she argued them to always to be respecting and complying on every changes in the school such instances. This was only after presenting their cries and hues.
The group who presented the issue including Toffic, Wandera despised the failure of SGC to help the comrades. They have failed to show up their leadership in that people should be avoided like a plague during the coming election on October this year. They too congratulated the effort of their supporters since their effort had finally seen the expected light.
