FRUSTRATION OF A degree
I don’t know how to cut a long story short, but I will try.
With a lot of hope I joined uni,
“You will be a step closer to achieving your dreams after four years”
I smiled at this thought
See,when I was growing up,
The most successful people had attended universities, done a
Not to forget that the prestigious Degree has been compromised,
Three lectures in a semester of four months,
Signing of attendance sheets for the lecturers pay
“Ensure you sign against your name all the 12 weeks,
The irony 3 against 12 weeks
We signed our future away,
A semester full of “D” grades,
Who is fooling who?
Mediocrity, mediocrity,spectrum of degrees,
I know you can name them,
“Soma kwa bidii utisaidie”
My single mum told me after selling the only parcel of land under her name to secure my school fee
Happy me,joining comrades to expand my mind for the so called better future
Maybe I am almost actualizing my dreams
And those long lectures,
Mind jogging assignments and those exams,
Life is full of tests and its clear now I have to put my Best foot forward to make it
We have been trying to raise our concerns through the right channels,
Negotiating for better services, value for our money,
Field trips that only reflect on fee cheques but never materialize,
So where does that cash disappear to,
I am sorry, but you need make me understand,
Why I cannot sit for exams without clearing that fee,
I would go on and on about the misgivings.
So I watch every semester as comrades go on strike,
Didn’t you refuse around the table negotiations,
They broke a pane or two this time,
I don’t support vandalism,
I actually don’t condone it,
But will sending a whole group of maybe 10,000 students home for an unknown period of time bring a solution?
Why don’t we look for better ways of dealing with our problems
Did you *administration* think that there could be a possibility that a few people with sinister motives bring down the * learning halls*?
And maybe if your management was polished things would be better?
