Kenyatta University Student association has been in existence since 1970. However during Kenya’s struggle for multiparty democracy (2nd liberation) in the 90’s all student organizations were banned. This led to a mass protest from student but eventually all unions collapsed including KUSA. This went on until the year 2004 when the students decided to actively take part in matters affecting them. KUSA was then reborn and has been an instrumental part in the governance of the university.
