The National Unity Platform have made the recent election in Universities their grazing land as they win almost all these elections with landslide victories.
This was the case as the party’s flag bearer in the Makerere University Guild Elections Shamim Nambasa swept the guild elections that were held yesterday.
Nambasa who was the only female candidate in the race garnered 5610 votes (54.161%) beating nine other aspirants.
Obeid Yahaaya Kamulegeya of FDC who was her closest rival only managed 1,548 just 14.945 of the vote.
NRM was nowhere to be seen in the race as they only managed a meagre 649 votes.
The other aspirants polled as follows:
Ronald Mutsinzi (Independent) got 1,187
Agrippa Byayesu. (Independent) got 697
Moses Tumusiime- 145 votes.
John Mwase (117 votes).
Martin Tumuhaise (117 votes).
Sam Ayeyo (70 votes).
Victor Omega (32 votes).
Nambasa speaking about her victory thanked her fellow students for making the right choice.
“I thank all the students for voting wisely. They chose the right leader,” Nambasa said.
Bobi Wine also took to his Twitter page to congratulate her saying this is another strong message to President Museveni’s regime.
Nambasa’s victory sees her replace Ivan Sempijja who also belonged to NUP.
She will be the 87th Guild president of Makerere University.
She is also now the 5th female guild president in the University’s history.
The last one was FDC’s Anna Adeke Ebaju who is currently the Soroti woman MP in 2013/14.
