Introducing the 6th Strathmore University Student Council

31st January 2014 will go down as a day to be remembered in the history of Strathmore University. It is on this day that students decided who was best fit to represent them in the 6th Student Council, of all the contestants who vied for the nine elective positions.

 

After 2 weeks of campaigning and mobilizing students to listen to their ideas and believe in their visions, the 6th Strathmore University Student Council Members were voted in on 31st January. Campaigns started on 17th January and ended on 29th January 2014. The candidates presented their manifestos and agenda during the speeches and debates and the audience mostly made up of the Electoral College engaged them with tough questions and challenged some of the ideas they hoped to implement.

 

For some candidates, the going was especially tough during the debate sessions where they had to face-off with fellow candidates vying for the same position. The debates were moderated by officials of various clubs and societies in the University with the help of the Elections Committee.

 

Voting began at 10.00am on Friday, 31st January. It was through a  secret ballot. It closed at 6.00pm paving way for the counting process which got underway immediately. The tallied results were announced at 7.30pm. The Dean of Students, Mr. Paul Ochieng, announced the results which were received with jubilation by the winning candidates and in appreciation by those that lost.
