Francis Mwangangi.4th year, Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
Congressman, School of Engineering and Technology
leader‘Without the services of an Engineer, a doctor is a witchdoctor”. These are the words he always uses to encourage his students during lectures. His name is Eng. Okaka, a man of wisdom and knowledge. I guess he’s the oldest in the school and the most experienced. This energetic man heads the oldest department in the school of Engineering and Technology, the mechanical department. He also doubles up as a fluid mechanics lecturer and when he happens to take you in that unit, you can never miss his lessons since next time he will bully you.
I love his simple way of life. I have never seen him driving but am sure he can buy any vehicle he wants. I have never seen him with a smartphone though he can afford the newest in the market. Is he too analog or its his way of life? I also don’t know.
In my tenure as congressman, I can say that his department has been the most cooperative of all. He works on an open door policy and is always welcoming. The secretary too is welcoming. Try visiting their offices and confirm this.
Allow me to appreciate the university management for the support given to SET. I cannot list all benefits here one by one but indeed they are in plenty. What remains is to now give all what it takes to ensure that the university is accredited. I can promise students that we will not tire until we see this process completed.
