The passionate mover of the Somesha Fund Mr Elijah Oenga requested the alumni to remember that Baraton is the best and it is not a second grade campus. He challenged them to take a lead role in making sure that Baraton has a real true image out there as opposed to negative claims. “ We are the best, serious people ready to conquer challenges out there. As a former SABU president, ABSA and Bitsa President, I am currently working in a university setting and I can assure you that every institution has her own challenges and solutions are found within and among the institution’s members.” He Said. The 2008 class member said that its time to contribute back to the University and Somesha Fund is the first way to go. “Its so shameful for us to see our brothers take more than ten years to complete their studies while we are watching. We appreciate the work study program we have at Baraton but it is not sufficient to help our brothers and sisters to finish their studies on time. Our hospitality is the best sermon we can preach. Let us give our contributions to help our fellow students at Baraton” Elijah Called. He Said that the the Somesha fund target is to have a thousand people Subscribing for a thousand Ksh Monthly and a criteria will be placed to get the beneficiaries starting from those who have overstayed in campus. He finalized his call for support of the Somesha fund which he had been requested by the current SABU leadership to spearhead by saying that its Godly to support and that its Biblical that those who give receives God’s blessings.
