Maseno University students have been urged to exercise decorum and tolerance during tomorrow’s elections. The polls will run through Friday.

“The union is meant to galvanise students, unite them, collect and collate their issues and communicate these where need be to the various administrative points for resolution,” vice chancellor Julius Nyabundi said.

He said polls should not jeopardise student activities, administration, academic staff, support staff and the community. The student president will be elected on Friday. The candidates are Fred Makajos, Mike Odoyo, Haron Abonyo and Gideon Ogolla.

Last year, the university closed following election riots as students protested against the death of a colleague during campaigns in October 13. They accused the management of financing candidates.
