Raphael Nedi, a third year political science student at Chancellor College has been voted into office as the new president for the college’s students union (SUCC) replacing Sylvester Ayuba James.
Nedi won with 1019 votes in an election which took place on Friday, 15th September.
His rival, Kondwani Tembo scooped 831 votes in the highly contested election which saw new faces being ushered in various positions.
In an interview with Nyasa Times, Nedi promised to continue putting at heart needs of the students.
“I am very grateful; I thank all the students who took their time in casting votes on this day. I don’t take this opportunity for granted and I promise to raise Chancellor College’s flag during my reign” he said.
Vera Banda comes second in command as the vice President; the post of secretary general has gone to Tendai Zulu while Gift Symon has taken up a position of the entertainment director among other top positions.
