Upon taking Oath, Tumuramye pledged to make the KIU NRM Chapter the best among all other chapters in different universities in Uganda. He said that it is his first priority to make the chapter stronger than ever.
"We are going to make the KIU NRM Chapter the best in Uganda and for that, we have already started. Notably is during the presidential swearing-in ceremony and we were the only Chapter that came out first to congratulate him," Tumramye said.
He added that his team has already designed a work plan that will help the chapter to integrate with other chapters, organizations, student think tanks, and the NRM Secretariat.
"We also intend to have friendly sports matches with different universities and organizations in order to create friendship, harmony and also popularize our name," he added.
