Wednesday, 25 February 2015



The university of Nairobi is known for a number of things in history but not when they mourn their hero. Today, Wednesday 25th of February 2015, all roads within and without The University premises will be closed as from 6.00a.m. Union Boss Babu Owino will be the commander in chief in all the operations and the whole nation if not world will remember this in the foreseeable future.

We request that Hon Nkaisery to choose his best boys and we'll come with fearless comrades. We direct the members of the public to keep off the roads surrounding the University.

Comrades you all know that on Saturday 21, February 2015 one of us, The late Washington Mwangi alias Vyte/vite/vaite, was knocked on The University Way by a speeding bus at around noon and the driver sublimed. He was taken to KNH( Kenyatta National Hospital), he never received proper medical attention and succumbed today afternoon due to what a number of comrades termed us NEGLIGENCE.
Negligence! Negligence! Negligence!.. Negligence amongst KNH Doctors, Negligence among The University chief Medical officer and the KNH Doctors. Comrades, Negligence! Negligence! Is what made our fellow student succumbed.
But who was the late Vyte?
• His real name was Washington Mwangi alias Vyte
• He was studying pure mathematics in UoN Chiromo Campus
• He was a senior student.
• He was a member of SoNU secretariat up to his time of demise. He was a politician, a veteran and one of the most feared aspirant in the forthcoming SONU elections.
• He fought many wars and knew no tribe. His tribe was comradeship.
Comrades for how long shall we keep quiet?? These atrocities must end in our time.
On the other hand, Many have sent their condolences led by Union Boss, to various leaders, to students, to friends, to family and finally the administration.

Let's console with the family by typing RIP Comrade.

Babu Owino:Ghost workers earning FAT salaries from the university.

Ghost workers earning FAT salaries from the university.

Babu owino addressing the press
It is regrettable that as the government weed out ghost workers, The University has lost millions of shillings the oldest ghost worker in the country, a Mr Wahome.
1. Little is known about this crook except that he is turning 80 on his next birthday. For now he is masquerading as the chief security officer,UoN.
Ms Kirima and Chief Security officer, Mr.Wahome
Ms Kirima and Mr.Wahome, chief security both of University of Nairobi.
2. Very meager accounts about his past work experience shows he joined the University as a night guard after a short stint as a doorman at City Mortuary back in 1969. He rose through the ranks by betraying students leader to the then special branch. As a result a number of students leaders lost lives at the torture chambers due to the callousness of Mr. Wahome.
3. He retired officially from The University in the year 2005 , then the vice chancellor Prof. Magoha hired him back due to his ruthless nature for a futher two year term. Then the circus began.
4. He has blackmailed several University top officials to remain in office illegally. Now he has started maneuvers and machinations to blackmail the new Vice Chancellor Prof. Mbithi to expell student leaders who are demanding that he return ALL salaries and allowances he had earned from the year 2007 to the University account or face prosecution.
5. As the Chairman of the umbrella students union SONU, I must protect the students money from being squandered by GHOST WORKERS who retired ages back. I have declared Mr. Wahome a persona non grata  and I appeal to comrades to treat him as enemy number one  and  to liaise with my office immediately they spot him anywhere in the university precincts.
Your Faithfully,
Babu Owino
