By late August, over 10 students had showed interest to vie for the University’s top most guild position but that number has since dwindled to a meager 5.

Last week, this publication exclusively established that NRM’s Andweniho Arthur, Imran Lukwoga, Ssemambo Morris, Daniel Ngirabakunzi and Sharif Ssebina had confirmed their guild president candidacy for the October polls.

Guild parliament dissolved on 10th September after the appointment of the electoral commissioners in accordance to artical 12 clause (10) (a) of Nkumba University guild constitution (as amended).
