App Maker Kaddu wins Friday's KIU Law Society Presidential Election



By Isaac Akugizibwe

KIU, Main Campus - Reagan David Kaddu registered a landslide victory in Friday's poll beating his competitor, Calvin Mwahuzi, with a range of 143 votes. The Kaddu David Reagan app inventor gathered 454 votes while Calvin Mwahuzi had 311 out of the 765 valid votes.

Kaddu will only go on to be sworn in office to replace Raymond Aliga if no substantial challenge arises. With most revellers declaring the election free and fair, the "it's time for change" advocate will most likely take-up the authority to put his manifesto to fruition.

Phionah Nuwamanya scooped 409 votes to claim the Vice Presidency challenge beating her arch rival Isaac Arafat Atusiime who managed 338 votes out of 747 valid votes.

In the speakership race, Aniston Atwijuka was humbled by Livingston Muhumuza who collected a record 522 votes against 211 for Atwijuka.

Friday's election has been described by various candidates' agents and many other revellers as a free, fair, transparent and highly peaceful election.

"The election has been highly peaceful and no infringement has been reported which makes it free and fair really," presidential candidate Kaddu's chief campaign agent, Hosea Kyomya, said on Friday.

This election has been so organised. Every thing was done in the open and surely I haven't seen anything to discredit today's election. To me, it has been free and fair," Patricia Twinobusingye, Phionah's campaign agent noted.

The conclusion of the Law Society elections is just a curtain raiser to the much anticipated College and Guild President elections scheduled for March and early April respectively.
