A Recap of the Episodes that Coloured the last week of September 2022.

Sometimes in the face of disenchantment and fear, it’s not hope that inspires action but action that inspires hope (Michael Xavier). While comrades experienced a cocktail of emotions about how this week would unfold, the sweet turn of events gave them all the reason to marvel. It will go down in the history of T.U.K as one of the most memorable weeks due to these:

1. Exams.

The students who are currently enrolled in the term system sat for their exams. While some seem unprepared due to getting stuck in the maze of national politics, others were more than anxious to scribble down the tiny knowledge they grasped from the online tutors. P.D.F came in handy too. They were mandated to sit for more than one paper on some day(s).

2. Nominations for S.A.T.U.K Awards.

The commencement of these nominations was officially announced on Sunday morning. It sent all into a frenzy. Cute faces were unleashed on posters as each competed to woo a larger audience. Indeed, beauty is such a strong currency. Unfortunately, student leaders could only contest for the award of Student Leader of the Year Award. President Mani attributed this on the basis that one can’t sit for an exam that was set by themselves and also reverberated that the nomination process will be transparent.

3. H.E.L.B Disbursement.

Eventually, Higher Education Loans Board heard about the plight of students. It disbursed funds to some students. There was merry all over. Nyakwar Otare, the current Blogger of the Year award 2021/2022 announced this good news via the official WhatsApp Group. Many commended the Secretary-General, Boniface Harrison, for following up on the matter.

4. Birthday Party.

The president, Peter Mani and the former aspirant for Sports’ Docket, Lameck Kaka, held a joint birthday festivity at the Alvin Lounge in Mirema on Friday. It was an open invitation. The allure and benevolence of the duo were reciprocated with a warm reception from everyone. Comrades enjoyed the ambience as they danced their stress away. They eventually nibbled on the delicious cake baked by the blessed hands of the talented Kanini Enterprise. Comrades and their devotion to sherehe should be asserted as the eighth wonder of the world.

5. S.B.L.S Fun Day.

The school of Biological and Life Sciences held their fun day on Friday at the institution. It was a spectacular opportunity for students to celebrate their milestones and friendship. Moreover, they also shared a cake and other delicacies. Calvin Otieno, the school representative, took that opportunity to dish out leadership and scholarly acumen.

6. T.E.B’s Declaration.

It is alleged the T.U.K.E.L.S.A Election Board endorsed Fredrick Oundo Barasa as their flag bearer of the presidential election. The other aspirants decided to shelve their ambitions for him. Nyabola opted to contest for Secretary General, Tony Blair decided to defend his current seat while Tony Blair Pire would vie for the Sports Docket. There were mixed reactions in the famous Whatsapp Group, T.U.K Blast. Some applauded the move while others dismissed the news as a hot air balloon. The Super Admin, Josphat Kioko, declared his immense support for the current Academic Secretary, Barasa.

7. T.U.K Gusii Bonding.

The family of T.U.K Gussi held a bonding session at City Park on Saturday. The session was open to all. They came together and shared light moments as they celebrated the gifts of mother nature. They all looked sharp in adorable outfits and beaming smiles. Suffice it to say, their smiles were an embodiment of their contentment and greatness.

8. S.M.A.S Bonding Session.

The School of Mathematical and Actuarial Science orchestrated an event on Saturday at Oloolua Nature Trail. The organizer of the event was his pekness Maurice Cornel Otieno. It was such a fulfilling day as they mingled with gusto.

Mayor’s Dinner: Exotic, Epic and Enticing.

“Sherehe sheria,” is the maxim that best summarizes the activities that took place on 17/09/2022 at the T.U.K South B Male Hostel. It was a terrific day organized by the Mayor, Meshack Ndanyi. The residents thronged the premises to heartily commemorate the enviable spirit of brotherhood as they fostered the golden fabric of unity through sports. The serene atmosphere was perforated with velvety smiles.

Neomi Wamboi: the agile Environmentalist and passionate Philanthropist.

During the hustle and bustle of schooling, I bump into Neomi Wamboi; the philanthropic lady with an imperial countenance. She is a girl on a mission to immaculately leave dents of the goodness of humanity in the hearts of many. She is also big on matters of the environment. Her wish is to have an extra large heart to absorb everyone’s needs out there and filter all their painful experiences. Here is our detailed interview with the beautiful queen.

Neomi Wamboi looking graceful.

What’s your name: I’m Wambui Naomi (Wambõ) aged 21 years old. I’m the firstborn in our household and presently pursuing Procurement and Supply Chain Management.

What made you start humanitarian services: (smiles) It’s innate. My parents, the greatest pillars of my life, inspired me and supported me to start. Since then they have always stood by me and motivated me to keep going on. I also cherish appreciating the environment through tree planting activities. Doing charitable visits is a form of self-healing therapy.

What challenges have you encountered:(coughs) I am yet to experience any set back. My constant belief that humanity is selfless has helped me navigate a lot of things.

What motivated you to start environmental conservation: Conservation of the environment comprises a series of good works which was pioneered and propelled by the late Nobel Prize winner, Prof Wangari Mathai. I’m ecstatic to finish the journey she started. This conservation is like a long-distance marathon. It is the end that matters. I also get energized to help the less fortunate since no one prays for bad days.

Neomi Wamboi together with her friends planting trees.

Your worst regret: I regret not starting a community service club in my high school.

Your achievements: I consider every soul I touch as an achievement. The prominent ones, however, are visiting 10 Children’s homes around Nairobi and Kiambu, dining with the street children, an elderly visit and launching a foundation called Touch A Soul Movement. It aims to bring together many youngsters with a similar interest in giving back to society. Furthermore, I was able to partner with the Ministry of Agriculture for tree planting activities through my initiative called the Green Heart Movement.

Any advice to someone who may want to venture into humanitarian services:(smiles) You don’t need to have a lot of cash in your bank account to offer a helping hand. It is the little money, love and care that you give out that counts. Don’t listen to the negative things said by pessimistic people. Always stay positive and seek the kingdom of God.

Relationship status :(laughs) If anyone is interested to know, they should personally reach out to me.

Biggest assumption people have about you: People presume that I am a social person yet I am a loner.

A joke about the environment :(giggles) A wife separated from her husband based on his views on the environment of trying to save water by showering with his neighbour’s daughter. That was crazy.

Deputy President: Factors to Consider when Choosing a Deputy President.

As T.U.K presidential aspirants prepare to contest for the top seat in October, it is fundamental that they select an equally capable running mate. Qualities shouldn’t be narrowed down to beauty and fame only. Rather, by the degree of passion for serving others. Leadership is truly a calling. A calling to serve everyone with equity. A calling to carry out duties diligently. A deputy president should act as an extension and arm of the president at all times.

In the recent past, this docket has been characterised by individuals who stay low-key immediately after entering the office. In the long run, it seems as if they don’t strive enough to make a difference. All the energy and vigour witnessed during campaigns seem to fade as their term progresses. They opt to live in the shadow of the president. This, in most cases becomes a deterrent to their service delivery. Comrades deserve an equally aggressive deputy president who is passionate in fulfilling their manifesto.

They also deserve a deputy president who can be seen, command and also influence masses. They should vibrate in the same wavelength as the president; acting as the armour and shield of the president. In the meandering journey of leadership, it’s worth noting that comrades also deserve an easily approachable deputy president. Someone who effortlessly mingles with everyone without prejudice.

Furthermore, the deputy president should be presentable and ready to execute authority. They ought to be courageous enough to advise, critic and challenge the president and the other leaders. Calling a spade a spade should be the norm whenever a need arise.

Finally, compatibility matters a lot. They need to choose someone with whom they share similar core values and principles. This will help in reducing discords among them. Hence, allowing the smooth running of the government. For a house to be declared fit, the foundation must be strong. Hence, a great foundation equals a strong house. Similarly, a great choice of deputy president is equivalent to great governance of school.

Summary on Comrades’ Kamukunji held on 9/09/2022.

Comrades came heavily laden with a myriad of problems to air them out during Friday’s Kamukunji. Only Rachel Cheptoo, Deputy President, was absent among the S.A.T.U.K Executive. Betty (Mayoress), Cecilia (SMME), Keshy (SCMS), Clinton (SISS), Calvin(SBHS), Kaisali(SBMS), Joy (SASP), Lucas (SMME), Morris (SCPS), Jeane (SCRE), Godwin (SSSS), Meshack (Mayor), Aaron (SMAS), Shampi(SISS), Joshua(SCIT), Lina (SHHE), Nabangi (SASP), Agere (SHHE) and Tony (SEEE) represented the Congress. The following were discussed:

1. Insecurity around the lady’s hostel. One complained of how they are getting mugged and drugged on their way to the hostel. Mayoress clarified that the insecurity level rose after the construction of Green Park by Metropolitan Services. Nevertheless, she mentioned that there was an increase in security officials assigned to them. She also urged students to take personal responsibility e.g walking accompanied by friends.

2. Frisking by Security Guards. One lamented that when the head of security is present, frisking by security officials is intense but in his absence, it is minimal. Ironically, another one pleaded that they should stop harassing students who fail to carry their I.D’s. The Academic Secretary said that immediately after one’s I.D is lost, they should get an abstract plus have their fee statement stamped as a temporary gate pass as they seek a replacement.

3. Hiking of Comrade’s Staple food. Peter Mani, President, claimed that he had talked earlier on with Anto, owner of Student Centre, to lower the prices of chapo beans beginning this week. He said it was the fault of comrades who are paying at 70 shs. instead of 60 shs. Kisiagy insisted that prices should be subsidized since at Men’s Hostel prices are cheaper. He also urged comrades to be well acquainted with the Student Centre Policy which gives guidelines on measures to take. Boniface, Sec. Gen, said that he had consulted with Mani earlier on regarding the issue.

Peter Mani, school president, emphasizing his points.

4. Increase in allowance of class representatives. Fredrick Barasa, Academic Sec, acknowledged that they paid for all the pending payments that were left by the previous union. He stated that term students’ class reps had already received their dues. He also added that their allowances were soon going to increase from 500 shs monthly to 1, 000 shs.

Fredrick Baraza, Academic Secretary, addressing comrades during the Kamukunji.

5. Student leaders snubbing students. One said that they get served with blue ticks when they seek service delivery from the leaders. There was an outcry that during campaign periods, they experienced smooth interactions with them unlike now when they are being treated like outcasts. Secretary General revealed that their contacts are both on the notice board and school gate. He also urged comrades to ring him up in case of harassment by officials.

Boniface Harrison, Secretary General, addressing students.

6. Otiato Kabeta, the mouthpiece of comrades, raised a couple of issues. He lamented on how K.N.H, the only referral hospital that is in partnership with T.U.K, only serves one when you are on your death bed. He also talked about the plight of a student who was currently detained in hospital due to a pending bill. Yet, the school didn’t want to cater for the bills. Mani said that such issues are critical and should be told in advance. Otiato said that the SATUK officials are currently in power illegally. However, Shampi rubbished the claims and said that the former union served two terms due to an outbreak of Corona and the constitution was yet to be amended.

Otiato Kabeta, comrades mouthpiece oozing wisdom in the forum.

7. Rampant suspensions of students. Mercy Kaisali, the school rep S.B.M.S, said that it’s only one case in which a student was suspended due to exam irregularities and only knew about it when it was already in its final stages. She revealed she is currently working on another one. She urged students to reach out earlier. Agere Sigunga said that students should talk to lecturers nicely instead of ranting when caught. He also urged them to maintain integrity in exams. Mercy also added that there was an already fully equipped laboratory L36 to serve comrades.

8. Set up a parallel male gender docket. The Gender Secretary, Mercy Kimani, recognised the existence of the peer counsellors who are ready to serve everyone equally devoid of discrimination.

9. Abolishment of policy of payment of school fees first before getting accommodation. The Mayor said that it wasn’t possible to remove that policy since some of the residents usually pay like 90% of the school fees. Hence, they are given first priorities.

Meshack Ndanyi, Mayor of Men’s Hostel giving a brief summary.

10. Absence of certain school representatives in the function. Some comrades were angry and expressed their disappointments on how their school representatives could miss such an event. Kisiagy urged them to be wise stating that bad leaders are chosen by good comrades who fail to vote.

Lucas Mteti, alias, Kisiagy, addressing students in the forum.

The following are the other concerns raised:

  • 11. Stenching of the toilets.
  • 12. Payment of lecturers’ salaries for the release of exam results.
  • 13. The school should start teaching C.P.A as a course since it is costly.
  • 14. Proper orientation of international students.
  • 15. Gazetting of money allocated to student officials.
  • 16. Scrapping off position of school representatives.
  • 17. School results to be conveyed through student portal.
  • 18. Accountability in how school representatives spend the 50,000shs. given to hold events.
  • 19. Absence of C.C tvs in school.
  • 20. Use of Biometric Identification to access school.
  • 21. Absence of excursions.
  • 22. Use of flyover.
  • 23. Constant use of obsolete instruments in the lab.
  • 24. Presence of only one computer laboratory in school.
  • 25. Shortage of sockets.

The people’s president, Nyabola, lit up some faces with his presence. Zacharia, an aspirant for the seat of secretary general, tried to steal the show by campaigning for himself. Mwenda Jason also made the session lively as he asked crucial questions. Among the school reps, Kisiagy was ranked as the most informative and interactive. It was a great event with Shampi Anna being the master of ceremony. It was noted that it should be made mandatory to have this comrade’s Kamukunji regularly. Comrades were grateful to the Secretary General for holding that session.

Some comrades and student leaders celebrating after solving issues amicably.

Cynthia Awino: The Pearl of Technical University of Kenya.

She is currently the pearl and pride of the Technical University of Kenya. She is a talented Chess Player who has achieved a lot. In the game of beauty and brains, she is the ultimate winner. She belongs to the upper echelon of aggressive and passionate young people. Here, is our interview with this classic lady.

Who is Cynthia: I am a 5th-year student pursuing a Bachelor of Degree in Chemical Engineering. Moreover, i am the T. U. K Chess Club Captain.

What are some of your great achievements: (smiles) Joining the Kenya National Chess Team earlier this year and getting the opportunity to be able to represent Kenya in the just concluded World Olympiad games that were held in Chennai India. In addition to that, getting a conditional Woman Candidate Master(WCM) title from the event was a big accomplishment for me as well. I also participated in the Mombasa Open Chess championship in October last year where I bagged all points to attain a maximum score in the tournament. Hence, becoming the ultimate winner.

Cynthia Awino, left in Shennai, India, during the World Olympiad Games.

What motivates you: I desire to be the best version of myself, for myself and for those around me. I want to be a better person than I was yesterday and this keeps me motivated.

When did you start playing chess: (Laughs heartily) I started learning chess in October 2017. Then played my first tournament in April 2018 at The Kenya Open and finished with 2 points out of 9.

Cynthia Awino gracefully posing for a pic at the Technical University of Kenya

Where do you see yourself 5 years from now: I see myself as the next Kenya national champion and it’s possible because I’m willing to put in the work. In 5years, I aspire to achieve a rating of 1900 and maintain it at that.

Advise to those who want to venture into chess: Be willing to learn. The best way to learn is to play lots of games and review those games. In that way, one gets to improve on areas of weakness.

What should T.U.K do to improve chess in school: I think it’s high time the school thought of investing in a Chess coach. Currently, we have none which makes it difficult to coordinate training.

Your future aspirations: I aspire to inspire people to embrace the game of chess. I would love to see the game of chess on top of the list at The Technical University of Kenya because there are millions of opportunities that exist out there for chess players. Currently, Kenya lacks a Woman International Master and Woman Grandmaster in chess and it would be a pleasure to own one of those title someday.

Top 3 Phenomenal Ladies making Impact in the Technical University of Kenya.

They are referred to as the intellectual powerhouses. Just like the proverbial Phoenix, these ladies are constantly rising to take the coveted places in society. They possess colossal resilience, a paragon of elegance and the prodigy of values. You can say they are products of grace since they are well refined. They apply vast wisdom and expertise in art, leadership and also sports. Hence, toppling major stereotypes about women.

Faith Nabwire Jwenge is our first superwoman. She is a 21-year-old currently undertaking a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology. Her passion is deeply entrenched in acting. She is the student coordinator of BridgeAfrica Advocacy Foundation. Last year, she gracefully scooped the award for the best actress in a French Play called ‘Isabelle‘ at the Alliance Française in Nairobi.

The talented Faith Jwenge feeling elated.

Did you know she is also a grandiloquent orator? Last year, she delivered a meticulous speech before the Vice Chancellor, Dean of Students and Deputy Vice-Chancellor. Politically, she vied for the position of Congress Lady in the School of Information and Science Technology in the year 2021/2022 where she emerged as the first runner-up. Furthermore, she has featured in numerous skits at the Kenya National Theatre. She aspires to be of one the best producers in the acting industry.

Secondly, we have the beautiful Anne Dondi. Presently, she is the congress lady of the School of Biological and Life Sciences. She is in her final study undertaking Biochemistry. She currently holds the position of the chairlady of Nyakach University Students Association. She doubles up as an associate in Champions for Change. Her mentors are her lovely mom and David Watson (Scientist). She hopes to become a great pathologist in future.

Thirdly, we have the gifted Cynthia Rono. Adroit, elegant and marvellous. She is both a crocheter and environmentalist. Her daily motivation emanates from desiring a clean green future. One of her grandest attainment is starting a crocheting enterprise which is slowly taking strides in society and will soon be an empire.

She says crocheting has ingrained in her endurance and also helped in stress management. Furthermore, it has aided in the reduction of her anxiety levels. She jovially says Queen Victoria of England is her well of inspiration since was once a crocheter.

Other superwomen include Doris Serem-Congresslady SSSS, Shampi Anna-Speaker and congress lady of S.I.S.S among others.

I will conclude with these powerful words of the venerated author, Margaret Ogola, as stated in her novel River and the Source, “A home without daughters is like a river without a source.”

A Dreadful Journey with a Stubborn ‘Kienyejy’.

When you ask people to recount their horrible experiences in life, many will talk of heart breaks. My recent harrowing experience transformed me from a meek Mary into an irate Maria in a jiffy. Lady luck seemed to have had a personal vendetta with me. Something was just not right with my seatmate. Was it the aroma of omena stemming from her bag? Was it the piece of ugali she was constantly chewing? I clearly couldn’t pinpoint.

Random picture of a beautiful lady who was once a Kienyeji.

Scarcely had the bus left when she started to vigorously engage in the scramble and partition for food. Each time she saw somebody’s food, her heart would throb with an electrifying effervescence of severe craving for it. While I don’t dispute the crafters of the phrase that food is medicine, I strongly disapprove of her behaviour. She ate completely oblivious of the immortal words in the Bible, “Too much of something is poisonous.”

Lovely photo of Pritty Vishy, social media influencer, when she was previously a Kienyeji.

Nevertheless, she wore a smile that signified the presence of new dawn but her appetite was a broad indicator of looming doom. ‘Kienyeji’ is what other travellers would randomly call her. She talked at the top of her hoarse voice. Ten minutes later, she was munching on the crispy chips that looked extra tired and had just divorced her estranged husband, cooking oil. She talked of her boyfriend who bought her an elegant orange petticoat inscribed with words “Tetema” from Nairobi. Her greatest anticipation was meeting Kiti Kiti and Kost (Giddi Giddi and Ghost) of Patanisho Show.

Chic ladies having some good time together.

Each time she spotted a skyscraper, she would exclaim, “Eeh kwelyy!” or ululate “mayoo. ” She seemed to have taken the phrase of Buy Kenya Build Kenya seriously. With her, was a pair of the outdated children’s goggles, tasty maindi choma and fake oraimo earphones. She fitted the goggles on the Goliath of her eyes. Thereafter, she took a selfie and posted it on her social media handles at Fayie Mpenda Marto. This was followed by a disastrous burst of laughter. By the end of the voyage, I was deficient in happiness and energy. One phrase lingered in my mind as I disembarked from the ill-fated automobile, “Msichana mrembo lakini appetite ni ya fundi.”

Clarion Call for Peaceful Election 2022.

Alexander the Great wanted to conquer the world, Elon Musk yearns to take a cluster of people to Mars, Muller wanted to build a team that no one could beat while Kenyans of goodwill, desperately crave harmony. Peace is an invaluable currency. It is indispensable that we all be envoys of peace during this period of election in our motherland.

Let’s vote for peace.

Comrades contend that you can’t stop an ejaculation whose moment has come. Similarly, one can’t stop the general elections from occurring. Thus, as the date nears, I would wish to emphasize that we strive to be the enzymes of peace. Let it be the end product of the exothermic process called elections. Devoted Christians affirm that love and peace are among the fruits of the Holy Spirit. Let’s grab these golden fruits gleefully and partake of them with gratitude.

Interestingly, our Kenyan flag is symbolic. The green colour stands for vegetation, white for peace, red for the blood that was shed during the tussle for liberation and black for the citizens. We need to keep this in mind even as we fight to retain the tranquillity theme spearheaded by our valiant ancestors. Let’s all unite and defeat our mutual enemies called hatred and tribal ethnicity. We are one Kenya, one tribe.

Kenyan flag flying high in a government institution.

Your pals will come through for you in case of a need, unlike the politicians whom you adore so much. Remember, when chaos erupts the ones at the top pyramid won’t get hurt but it’s the one at the lowest who will pay the hefty price. Don’t accept to be the sacrificial lamb. Let’s remember, “Tusiblead ndio wa-lead.”

On that note, the I.E.B.C Youth Coordinating Committee affably invites everyone to the National Youth Prayers and Peace Festival this Sunday 7/08/2022 at K.I.C.C. Below is the link to the event. Confirm your attendance by signing in the link below. Finally, bear in mind we must erect and constantly nurture an impermeable fortress of peace.
