By Isaac Akugizibwe

KIU, Main Campus - On Friday 4th March 2022, the executive committee of the KIU Mass Communication Students Association resolved to surrender the powers they have held for the last two years to fresh minds led by Ibrahim Matovu.

The resolution was reached at after a meeting between the incoming President Ibrahim Matovu, the Outgoing President Nkwenkam Momekam Tite, and Madam Maureen Komugisha, the Patron of the association and Head of Department, Journalism and Media studies. 

The one-hour ceremony that took place infront of the Guild Union marked the end of Nkwenkam Momekam Tite's two-year reign which was elongated by the unpopular COVID-19 lockdown. He handed over all the instruments of power to Ibrahim Matovu, now the 14th President of the association.

Tite encouraged his successor to keep the candle burning and ensure the association continues to prosper.

"I want to thank Mr. Matovu for accepting the responsibility of leading this amazing association. I think you have the potential to do better than we have. I implore you to preserve our legacy and ensure the association continues to grow," he advised.

Matovu Ibrahim, a third year student is considered a good orator, innovative, ambitious, and an enthusiastic fellow. He promised to use his ability and passion for journalism to rejuvenate the association.

"I am happy that I've been entrusted with a great opportunity to lead this great association. I can not promise things I won't fulfill but I promise to use my skills to make MACOSA great again," he said.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, this was the first time, the Mass Communication Students Association changed leadership. Among the things expected of the new executive is the revival of the weekly KIU TV news updates.
