The time is ripe once again for the hopefuls to daunt the streets and brave the sun and all that comes with it. The energetic young men and women in fitting or oversized cotton, lustrous wear and any other material are yet knocking on your door to make that statement.
Whenever it comes to the second semester of the academic year, there is a way weather changes. That is when bitter criticisms of the current regime surface; much as the human being was part of it. People turn to factions and more on the road. They have an answer to every question (even if unasked). They know the broken systems right from the Vice Chancellor’s office to the latest ‘Askari’ at the UH small gate in charge of IDs.
I don’t really know the science that explains that wearing a black fitting or oversize suit earns you that reputation. I don’t know whether it makes people get high, whatever the reasons I love the experience.
If the church had the chance to sue the Political Hopefuls, there would be no better time than this. The use of the ‘Churchery’ Language of the sistren and brethren gets over used. In this time of the season, we are all brothers and sisters apart from the opponent’s camp. “oh my brother, how are you? I need your support. Your sis is coming as GRC, so please remember me.” The plea goes on and on much as you are interested or not. Before one is fully gone, the other is already on your back. They are so kind. They don’t give you room to think that a month in office, their phones will be off.
However, the season also comes with freebies. This is the only time hugs in are in excessive supply. You get one before even asking for it. And for our Lumumba fraternity, they won’t take long before whispering into your ears, “aka-hug aka-hug.” The fun is on for those who look for it. Free tot packs to keep whistle blowers unsober, logistics- tell me one who doesn’t know the meaning of this word and I will show you someone who doesn’t belong to university.
The question of academics goes on, though silently. Chances are that all the political hopefuls shall turn out to be evening students. They endeavor to attend without fail and somehow, they get away with it. Whatever the results after our casting the vote, we look forward to a having a funfair season.
All the seasons’ greetings to you all.
