Guild budget: Is it a confidential affair and who is the end beneficiary?

Makerere University's Guild President, Shamim Nambasa

The Makerere Guild constitution stipulates that there shall be a guild cabinet with ministers - chosen from within the house and answerable to the Guild Representative Council. Upon taking up office, ministers are obliged to make a budget so as to fund operations in their respective ministries.

Ministers usually formulate a workplan of whatever they want to accomplish from their manifesto and the budget does fund the projects. The workplan is then presented to the finance minister and the house at large for approval.
