The recently elected Jomo Kenyatta University Students Association (JKUSA) leaders are all set to assume their respective offices following their swearing conducted on Monday, March 6, at the university’s main campus in Juja.

The leaders, representing congress and the executive council, were sworn in to begin their tenure, in an inauguration ceremony that was conducted by the University Legal office, and graced by university management and students.

While addressing students after the swearing-in exercise, Vice Chancellor, Prof. Victoria Wambui Ngumi expressed the commitment of the university management to work collaboratively with the JKUSA leadership to improve the welfare of students and ensure their university experience is seamless.

“I challenge you to always embrace constructive dialogue, open communication, and be guided by the ideals of the greater good in all your engagements. Let us work together to build a community that is inclusive, innovative, and proactive,” she underscored.

Prof. Ngumi further urged the elected leaders to use their positions to effect positive change, foster innovation and collaboration, and to serve as a voice for the student body, cautioning them against looking into personal interests at the expense of the collective needs of all students.

“You must work tirelessly to uphold the values of this great institution – excellence, innovation, and service to the community. Your leadership will be vital in shaping the future of JKUAT, and I am confident that you will rise to the challenge,” added Prof. Ngumi.

The Dean of Students, Prof. Fridah Wanzala, paid tribute to the JKUSA Electoral Commission for conducting the elections in a free, fair and transparent manner, and commended students for conducting themselves maturely and coming of age politically.

In his maiden address as JKUSA Chairperson, Brian Mutevu thanked the students for granting him the mandate to serve as their leader, and expressed his readiness to work with all stakeholders for the benefit of students.

“We shall build on the gains and successes of the previous student leadership and at the same time implement better initiatives for the benefit of comrades. I want to assure the comrades that this council will work for you, and will prioritize your needs and interests. JKUSA belongs to all of you, and my only appeal is that you work with us towards making this university a better place for current and future students,” said Mutevu.
