On Friday night, National Unity Platform’s Shamim Nambassa was elected Makerere University’s 87th Guild President in a landslide victory.
Nambaasa emerged victorious with 4,575 votes and was distantly followed by Forum For Democratic Change’s Obeid who managed to get only 314 votes.
Nambassa who was popular for her campaign slogan, “Vaccinate the Junta with wee-wee” surely went on to taste its power and National Unity Platform’s ever-growing popularity.
Just minutes past 9:00 PM on Friday night, Nambassa took to her social media platforms to announce the victory and congratulate herself and her fans. “Thank you for residing in the umbrella of unity. We have fought a good fight, but the actual battle is yet to come. Gear up you guardians of the Ivory Tower, for we must lead the country to freedom. PeoplePowerOurPower.” She posted.
On Saturday morning, NUP President Bobi Wine also took to his social media platforms to praise the newly elected Guild President Nambassa, “Once again MAKERERE has spoken unequivocally. Ladies and gentlemen, behold the 87th Guild President of Makerere University. Congratulations Shamim Nambassa. Congratulations National Unity Platform. Congratulations Uganda. Aluta continua. PeoplePowerOurPower.” Bobi Wine posted.
Nambassa will take over office from one Ssempijja Ivan of the National Unity Platform who has been in office as the 86th Guild President
