babOne of the reason why Babu Owino returned to the University of Nairobi for a second undergraduate course is believed to be the desire to lead the students again. He is probably the only UoN student to head SONU in two different occasions as an undergraduate student.

Bad news for those who hoped to see him for a third time. The controversial leader on Sunday announced his decision to quit University Politics and instead join national politics.

On a Facebook post, he said that he will not be seeking re-election after his current term ends.

I will not vie for SONU chairman after my term in Office, I will officially join the National Politics.


In the last General Elections, he unsuccessfully vied for the Westlands Parliamentary seat. This will most likely be his destination again.
