IMG 8368The New MMUSO Leadership took full charge of the student organization, in a colorful swearing-in ceremony held at the Main Campus on 28th June 2018. Taking the oath administered by the Legal Officer Ms. Josephine Osiro, were the MMUSO President Clifton Kisera, Deputy President Esther Nyaboke, Secretary General Julius Museu, Treasurer Boniface Kirimi, Secretary Academics Patrick Odhiambo, Secretary Sports and Entertainment Bahati Mong’are, Secretary Gender and Special Interests Noyline Cherotich, and 36 members of parliament drawn from various sections of the University.

MMUSO President Mr. Clifton Kisera, following his swearing-in, reached out to all his challengers and students at large, urging them to work together and make MMUST a great University. The outgoing MMUSO President Mr. Brian Okeja, congratulated the incoming team of the 16th government, and challenged them to remain united in putting students’ interest at heart. 

Speaking during the event, the Vice Chancellor Prof. Eng. Fred Otieno thanked the entire student body for conducting peaceful elections that reflected the will of the students. He congratulated the winners, and called upon their close challengers to work as opinion shapers, so as to create conducive environment for the university and the surrounding community. He affirmed that the University management is ready to work with the student leaders. Pressing on the importance of collaboration between students and staff, he said that this will help achieve his goal of making MMUST a student centered and world class University.

The Vice Chancellor further advised the elected leaders to embrace dialogue in all aspects, which was a major strength of their predecessors. “Dialogue and unity are what can make an institution grow. MMUST was position twenty-three when I took over in 2014, but it now ranks top ten among Kenyan Universities, thanks to the good collaborative efforts of student leadership and the University Management” he said.
