I need clarification from the SONU office why students of Anthropology have not benefited from the bursaries for the past two years. Could you please track down these past Institute Reps and ask them where they took the Student's money. I see some of them still with us in this 'World Class University' I feel like am brewing corrupt leaders over here and when they get out of this University they will be ready for consuption and Kenyans will suffer!I need clarification please.
