Ajah Tabitha Chol Claims KIUSSSA Presidency


By Isaac Akugizibwe
KIU, Main Campus-For the first time since 2020, the KIU South Sudan Students Association has changed leadership. Tabitha Chol Ajah replaces Kon Kon Aleu who has served for a record two years aided by the Covid-19 lockdown.

Ajah beat Dok Door Madeng in the April 15th election to claim the highest office of KIUSSSA where she will be the fountain of hope for the next one year as required by the students Union Constitution of KIU.

Her Predecessor Kon Aleu will go down in records as the association's longest-serving leader, though against his making. He was the happiest when Ajah finally ascended to the helm of KIUSSSA.

"I am truly relieved and very happy that we have transferred power at last. Life has not been easy in the last two years. Everything happened against our will and plan. I think it's time to let fresh minds think," he said.

Ajah has promised to reunite students who hail from South Sudan and also reignite the association such that it gets to be felt at KIU. She wants to see South Sudanese engage in high-profile students affairs like the Guild Union leadership, sports activities among others
