Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, has praised the Uganda Christian University (UCU) Vice Chancellor, John Senyonyi and his administration for taking an interest in the students’ life while at the university.
Kadaga made the remarks as she witnessed the swearing in of the new UCU, Guild President and Guild Representative Council held at the university’s main campus in Mukono, Thursday 14 November 2019.
“I want to thank the Vice Chancellor and the administration of the University for taking an interest in the entire process of election of the students. They are guiding the students ensuring that they achieve the objectives while keeping God first,” said Kadaga adding that “While I was at the university the VC was very distant from us and what we did was purely students’ affairs.”
In the elections held this month, Timothy Kivunike Kadaga beat Elias Nyakahuma to become the 21st Guild President of UCU.
The Vice Chancellor, Senyonyi, hailed the loser for expressing humility and conceding defeat in the race.
Timothy Kivunike Kadaga, a second year law student, swore to be faithful and bear true allegiance and to preserve, protect, defend and uphold UCU guild constitution.
“Now that we have taken oath we have started work. I will work with Nyakahuma who had good ideas that if implemented we shall move many steps forward,” Kivunike Kadaga said.
Kivunike Kadaga was the Speaker of the Commonwealth Youth Parliament (African Region) held in Uganda in April 2019.
