Maverick University of Nairobi student leader Babu Owino yesterday reacted angrily after news of a student of Kenya College of Accountancy University was suspended just because the student met him (Babu) at a public mall several kilometers away from the institution.
The student, a Mr. John Lucas Nyangaresi, was suspended from the university by KCA Vice Chancellor Prof Noah Ochieng’ Midamba for meeting the SONU leader at Thika Road Mall in what the VC claims are attempts by Babu to run his university down.
Babu and Midamba are not the best of friends because Babu wants Midamba to stop treating university students under his care as maggots.
Midamba, on his part, claims Babu is a threat to his managerial power.
Part of the suspension letter reads, ”Babu Owino is a well known enemy of KCA administration. Last year, he threatened to burn my car after I suspended a student who urinated in my office”.
But reacting to the letter, Babu Owino dismissed the reasons for suspending the innocent student as ‘cheap, frivolous and incomprehensible’, warning the Vice Chancellor that he risks inviting other students to his office for ‘open defecation’.
“Every right minded comrade is utterly shocked by what Professor Ochieng’ Midamba has done. I can only say the professor is being haunted by his late grandmother. I’ll take him to court for this devilish act, watch me,” warned Owino.
Below is the letter which sent Nyangaresi home.
