5. Gachanja Ephantus alias “Epho” is a third year B Sc. Civil Engineering Student. He has been the representative for his class since first year and has therefore worked closely with the different student councils.

He describes the last year as ‘particularly stressful and full of oppression for students.’ He says that if elected, he will fully take on the responsibility of placing competent people who have proven themselves in the Dekutso council. He urges everyone to come out and vote. As a parting shot, he leaves this Barrack Obama quote, “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time.
