The Daystar University Student Association (DUSA) Council on the 14th of October 2021 voted unanimously to remove Wambui Njoroge from her seat as the Treasurer of DUSA.
The vote was unanimous as six out of the seven Council members voted to have her dismissed citing dissatisfaction with her services. As per an email sent out by the Secretary General Caleb Paul, the DUSA Council will have one of their qualified members take the treasurer’s seat in acting capacity as they await official dates for a by election from the Electoral Commission of Daystar.
The lead up to this decision involved Wambui Njoroge, at one point, being ejected from her seat as per an Email sent by the Secretary General Caleb Paul on 1 September, 2021. On resuming her duties on 13 September 2021, the other members of the Council and Congress were still unimpressed by how she went about her duties which led to her removal.
Congress Speaker Noel Shimba, welcomed the decision from the Council as he explained to Involvement the frustrations involved with her in office. She did not honor the summon from congress who were seeking answers on why the budget was taking too long to be dropped.
Her accounting skills were also brought into question by Congress. “We gave the ECD fourteen days to give us her accounting skills which were not provided and after fourteen days, she had to step aside [Sic],” explained Shimba, “there is no budget presented by Wambui, she has been missing in action for far too long and she has been absent for some important events requiring her signature for funds to be released.”
Ms Wambui Njoroge when asked said she will appeal the decision since she feels this is not in line with the constitution.
As Wambui leaves office, she leaves behind a questionable legacy as treasurer. Once again prove that holding office is about delivering to students, owning up to the oath of office, and not enjoying the ride in the park.
