KIU, Main Campus - The KIU Education Students Association (KIUESA) yesterday screened all candidates for different posts, an exercise that the KIUESA Electoral Commission described as successful. Led by outgoing President Martin Pinto Sewankambo, yesterday's screening found all candidates fit to proceed in pursuit of the different offices.
The College of Education will this Friday 28th January, 2022 vote leaders who can help propel their association for the year 2022-2023.
According to Ritah Nuwagaba, the Secretary of the KIUESA Electoral Commission, the candidates are now officially allowed to campaign while observing guidelines against the spread of COVID-19.
"The candidates have been officially allowed to campaign in any way possible but we urge them to do it while observing the SOPs against the spread of COVID-19. These include telling their supporters to wear face masks, wash their hands and avoid overcrowding," she said.
Robert Serunkuma and Ismail Mugerwa are said to be in stiff competition to succeed Martin Pinto Sewankambo as President for KIUESA in the next one year with both candidates pulling mamoth crowds of potential voters. The two candidates started showing their strength immediately after being declared eligible to run when they were welcomed by their respective teams.
Isaac Wandera and Emmanuel Mark who are both vying for Vice Presidency are another pair to keep eyes on ahead of Friday's poll.
