The most controversial university student leader Babu Owino bagged the nomination for the Embakasi east MP under the Orange Democratic Party (ODM) even with all the drama surrounding the party primaries.
The SONU chairman seems to have luck on his side as he also won the SONU elections last year which brought with it a lot of chaos and disorder within the university. On 30th April 2017, the leader expressed his joy for his success during part primaries on social media.
Although some people do not seem confident with Babu Owino, he has been consistent in seeking leadership opportunities. Word has it that he aimed to be the first SONU chairman to be elected in office as a Member of Parliament. This might just come to be. As he takes another shot at the August House, we wish Mr. Owino all the best.
