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.

Mujinya was last Friday kicked out the race because he is not academic normal progress.
If either candidate wins this race, she will not only be the first guild president to hail from Complex but also Makerere’s fifth female guild president. The win will also see two female guild presidents in a row, for the very first time in the history of the 91-year old institution.

Africa Hall has produced Makerere’s first female guild president Juliana Norah Njuba (1987/88) Susan Abbo (2007/2008) and Anna Adeke (2013/14) while Mary Stuart has been at the helm once through Sarah Kagingo (1997/98) whose government was dissolved midway.

in the past three decades, Lumumba has dominated the position with 7 guild presidents, Nsibirwa (Northcote) and Mitchel with 6 each, University Hall with 5, Nkrumah and Africa with 3 each, Livingstone and Mary Stuart with 1 and Complex with none.
