University of Nairobi student leader, Babu Owino has declared his preferred candidate in the 2017 presidential race.
Babu Owino, the SONU chairman, told a local radio station that he would support CORD leader Raila Odinga’s bid to unseat President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“While at the university I will try as much as I can to contribute towards Raila winning the presidency,” said Babu Owino as published by The Star on Monday, April 11.
Despite Babu’s close relations with President Uhuru’s personal assistant and nephew Jomo Gecaga, he will still support CORD.
Babu is serving his forth term as the SONU Chair and is alleged that he will be vying for a parliamentary seat in the coming election. He is eyeing the Embakasi East constituency seat where he would challenge ODM’s John Ogutu.
