Makerere students boycott guild poll


Students of Makerere University College of Education have refused to vote following the annulment of the recently concluded guild presidential elections.

On March 11, Bazil Biddemu Mwotta was announced Makerere’s 82nd guild president after beating his rivals.

His closest rival Roy Ssembogga denounced the election results and filed a petition challenging the outcomes.

Makerere University Electoral Commission on Tuesday overturned the results.

The cancellation of the polls sparked chaotic scenes that saw police firing teargas to disperse rowdy students.

The Dean of Students who is also the Secretary to the Tribunal, Cyriaco Kabagambe, requested for fresh elections at the College of Education for all candidates.

However, the students from the College of Education refused to vote insisting Mwotta won the poll “fair and square”.

Earlier, students of Social sciences also went on strike protesting the removal of development studies course.
