It has been a week characterized by a beehive of political activities around Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology, Kakamega. The renown giant University located in Kakamega County is home to various students drawn from different tribes. Through the Masinde Muliro University student Organization (Mmuso), the students are actively involved in politics from the parliamentary level all the way to the students Executive Council (SEC).
The students in the University have been hailed across the country as one of the most organized, in terms of political strategies and the code of conduct of the elections. The electioneering period within the University is an Exact replica of what happens in the country. Students pledge their loyalty to different political parties, with the CRA and CDA parties dominating the 2022/2023 elections. Similarly, the students are heavy spenders as their political rallies and meetings are quite expansive. In an exclusive interview with Mpya News Kenya, one of the aspirants revealed to us that it costs close to 100,000 in political expanses to win a post in the parliament or the SEC. That shows have politics within the Institution is expensive.
The elections that were held on 3rd and 4th of March saw Comrades Revival Alliance (CRA) gather most of the parliamentary seats and thus making it easier for them to win the SEC positions. Unlike last year, members of the Comrade Democratic Alliance(CDA) have shown significant improvement, winning the Treasury in the Executive council. Here is a breakdown of how the parliamentarian voted for the SEC positions.

The Sports and Co-Curriculum post ended in a draw 17:17. Re-election is scheduled for next week.
