Strathmore University Decides; 9th Student Council Elected
This year’s Student Council Elections were fiercely contested with a record twenty eight candidates vying for various positions, with the deciding factor for some of the posts being as little as two votes.
The voting process went on smoothly and took place in the music room on the 3rd Floor of the Student Centre Building, on Friday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. The tallying of the votes was done thereafter in the Sir Thomas More Building Auditorium from 6.15 p.m. with the results being announced at 7.30 p.m.
Prior to the Election Day, the campaign period was a busy one for the prospective candidates who went from class to class relentlessly trying to garner the support of their fellow students, convincing them on why they should be elected into office.
