As it has necessarily never been easy for most guild elections for various Universities in the country in that some students end up losing their irreplaceable lives as witnessed vividly in Kyambogo some years back where the tension costed the life of one of the NRM supporters in a terrible crash in front of the institution’s main building, more stories related to this always repeats itself.
The Current political situation in Africa’s number one ranked Business institution-Makerere University Business school (MUBS) foretells the possible outcome if security in the area isn’t intensified.
The latest absurd news reaching the Campusa News desk indicates one of the Uganda Young Democrat (UYD) one of the famous political party in Mubs supporter has fallen victim of this, a broken leg due to divergence in political affiliation.
The victim (pictured below) is from the precumbent’s party who are rallying behind their candidate Julius Ntende.
The tight guild presidency’s race is between J.Ntende (UYD), Katura Brandon of FDC, Edson Mugabe (INDEP), Mark Hillary Kayongo (INDEP) and Ibanda Bashir (NRM).
As 19th April the stated day of election draws closer, many candidates are traversing several classes, hostels and MUBS’s surroundings witch-hunting for votes. This has culminated in fierce exchanges wherever any of the two parties meet.
However the University’s administration has stated that its security is well catered for as is on standby to handle any hooligans who are planning to cause commotions both during the pre-elections as well as the post-election’s aftermath and has discouraged supporters to desist from unlawful actions including diverging away from guidelines provided by the Electoral Commission.
Our ground correspondent Menyatta interviewed some of the supporters in response to the incident and one of them who requested for anonymity had this to say”…First you beat up an innocent lady and now break someone’s leg because of his affiliation towards a particular candidate…is that the change your talking about??? Through risking people’s lives, injuring them and even attempting to kill them….
Justice is going to deal with you hooligans and God shall surely reward you…. “
