- Advertisment -spot_img

It was a blend of hot air and dust at the Entebbe-based higher institution of learning, Nkumba University as 7 Guild Presidential aspirants took their last shot to convince students for votes during the open-air campaigns yesterday, 28th October 2022 at the Guild gardens ahead of elections today.

With valor, each Guild presidential candidate commanded his crowd to the venue and made way off the venue unwaveringly chanting slogans that exalt their candidates.

Imran Kigongo’s oratory skills won many hearts but with only a scanty number of students at the listening end. As a hands-on leader, Imran informed students that he already installed internet which will serve Nabagereka Hostel and the neighboring areas. The linguistically endowed independent candidate promised to deliver more if elected.

Ngirabakunzi Daniel made through with a substantially fair number packed in two Safari land cruisers. Daniel was candid about putting Nkumba first.

The South Sudanese ring-faced candidate, Toka Victor stormed the gates of Nkumba university amidst commotion and clamor. The humble servant assured students of accountability and unity if entrusted with the leadership mantle.

NUP’s Morris Ssemambo cited the need for all students to unite if Nkumba University is to break loose from the bondage of NRM.

Sharif Ssebina hinted at re-igniting sports welfare and devising a comprehensive approach to handling the plight of international students.

Renegade NRM member, Amon Muhwezi commanded a meager following. He addressed his team for less than 15 minutes leaving 30 minutes unutilized. Amon argued students not vote because of money, “don’t vote for someone because of mere tips or because he is your friend, vote for Amon because he is the best in the test”

NRM’s Arthur Andwineho arrived at around 5 pm with a mammoth of students donning yellow T-shirts. Arthur assured voters of his ability to deliver a University that will work for all, “We must re-stock our clinic. If I were given 1 hour to change Nkumba University, I would use 55 minutes to identify its problems and only 5 minutes to find solutions.” He asserted.

Students were treated to surprise performances from Fik Famaica courtesy of NRM camp and Nubian Li for NUP’s Morris Ssemambo. The musicians’ performances most especially Fik Famica’s sent students into excitement.

The open-air campaigns were presided over by Chairperson Nkumba University Electoral Commissioner, Mr. Nduhura Jossy, and his entire committee. Notable among others was the overseer of the electoral commission, Mr. Christopher Kimuli who is also the dean of students.

In his articulations, the chairman of EC advised all aspirants to adhere to the commission’s rules and regulations as stipulated in the guild Constitution else they risk facing harsh repercussions.

Nkumba University students go to the polls today to decide who their next Guild President will be for the next 1 year.
