The much anticipated Kenyatta University Culture week went down last week at the University’s main campus and as expected, the weeklong event had many talking points. From the outset, the event seemed well planned and coordinated making it clear that the occasion was of great significance to the institution. But as fate would have it, the organizers’ hitherto neatly executed plans literally came tumbling down when a section of the tents erected to host the guests at the event’s official launch collapsed under heavy downpour. Comedian Eric Omondi was left dazed on stage as students and visitors scampered for shelter while VIP’s including media owner S. K. Macharia, whose Citizen TV station was airing the event live, stared speechless. The hallmark of the event was the overnight Mr & Miss K.U gala held last Friday where the institution’s hunks and beauties challenged one another for the ultimate crown. Heavy rain and the muddy terrain did little to deter the eager comrades who turned up in large numbers to cheer their own. Despite the poor sound, the occasion also turned out to be a major outing for male students from JKUAT’s Juja campus who reportedly flock the venue in pursuit of skirt wearers. Enthusiastic comrades thronged the in-campus liquor store venting their frustration on empty beer and spirit bottles when they were unable to obtain the precious commodities which had ran out way before midnight. By the time Dennis Kiruai Munene, (2nd year Bachelor of Economics) and Anne Wanjira Kariuki (2nd year Bachelor of Economics and Statistics) were crowned the 2011 Mr & Miss Kenyatta University respectively, a good number of comrades had already vacated the venue due to the incessant rain. Meanwhile, comrades in Kabianga University College were incensed by a decision to cancel the much awaited System Rave show ‘until further notice’ just a few hours before it was scheduled to commence. The show which was meant to raise breast cancer awareness had included appearances by DJ Mo, MC Alemba and Sadiq among others.
