How FDC failed to front candidate in Mak guild race

Six days to the March 19th guild presidential election at Makerere University, it now clear that the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has failed to front a candidate.

FDC, the party which brought the outgoing guild president Ann Adeke will not be represented on the ballot paper in the next Wednesday poll.

On February 26th, the party president, Mr. Mugisha Muntu was the chief witness in an event that saw Andrew Mujinya declared the party’s flag bearer.

Complex keen to produce first female guild president

Complex Hall will struggle to have their first guild president in the March 19 poll.

Through Sarah Aseru of the Uganda Young Democrats (UYD) and Lillian Aber (independent), the hall will seek to have a guild president to their name.

Whereas Aseru comfortably sailed through the UYD primaries, Aber lost to Andrew Mujinya in the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) primaries.

Two females are in the Makerere University guild race to replace Ann Adeke, a fellow female.

They are Sarah Aseru, the Uganda Young Democrats (UYD) candidate and Lillian Aber, an independent
The female candidates come from Complex Hall which has never produced a guild president.

If either candidate wins this race, Makerere may not only see the fifth female guild president but also two female guild presidents in a row, for the very first time in the history of the 91-year old institution.
