The parliament will be dissolved today after the vetting exercise in adherence to artical 12 clause (10) (a) of Nkumba University guild constitution. we are vetting 36 candidates who showed intereat to serve at the electral commission, from the 36 we need only 8, meaning each school will be represented by 1 commisioner,” said Shema Bienvenus, MP none-resident.

The 8 Commissioners will then convene at a later date and elect a leader amongst themselves and together draw the election roadmap.

Reports indicate that by late August, over 10 students had showed interest to vie for the position of the guild president but that has since dropped to 5.
