By Isaac Akugizibwe

KIU Main Campus - Martin Pinto Sewankambo has described his term of office as President of the KIU College of Education and Distance Learning Students' Association (KIUESA), as a successful one characterized by several ground-breaking innovations and activities, regardless of the fact that it might have been disrupted by COVID-19. He is hopeful that 2022 will yield more for the teachers in making.

Sewankambo, whose term is set to expire early in the new year, said on Monday 3rd January 2022 that he has so far delivered as he had promised despite disruptions by the COVID-19 pandemic. He commended his board for being hardworking and supportive.

"I want to thank my leadership team for being so hardworking and supportive. With them, I have managed to bring KIUESA this far," Sewankambo said.

"We successfully certified all leaders of the college apart from the Guild MPs. This included all KIUESA Executive Members and Class Coordinators," he added.

Despite the disruptions and uncertainty caused by COVID-19, Sewankambo said his team remained focused. This enabled him to successfully organize some of the customary activities like the annual KIUESA Sports Gala.

"We also successfully organized the college Sports Gala right before the previous lockdown. We have laboured tooth and nail, especially with my Vice President, to give meaningful leadership through effective service delivery," he stated.

"In that very term of leadership, we held a successful college debate that was overseen and judged by the Debate Union of KIU," he added.

Sewankambo and his team will also boast of organizing a Career Guidance session for KIU's finalist students in preparation for internships and fieldwork, and also of hosting the Africa Institute of Management for a groundbreaking hands-on experience workshop.

The self-proclaimed young achiever is a finalist student of Arts in Education at KIU. He started his leadership career as a Class Coordinator before successfully running for college Vice-President and President respectively.
