KAMPALA - Makerere University vice chancellor Prof Barnabas Nawangwe has congratulated Julius Kateregga of Bachelor of Arts with Education upon being elected the 85th guild president of Makerere University.
Kateregga, a second-year student, polled 3912 votes against 3365 for his closest rival, Joshua Mukisa in elections conducted Friday.
“I look forward to working with you (Kateregga) to make Makerere greater,” Prof Nawangwe tweeted.
Kateregga is leaning towards the 'People Power' political movement led by Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.
Eleven students were contesting in the race. They included those backed by the ruling National Resistance Movement(NRM) and the main opposition party, Forum for Democratic Change(FDC).
People Power candidate Jonathan Tunduru also won the guild race at Kyambogo University recently.
