Serebe Mark, a Bachelor of Arts in Human Resource Management student, became the latest guild president of Victoria University Kampala. He replaces Mariah Peggy Nabunya who was the first female guild president of the Jinja Road based University.
Serebe said he wants to be the link between University's management and students. "I felt that the University was falling short on becoming a place for learning and acquiring knowledge because of small but yet very vital elements such as communication between management and students," he said.
The new guild president wants to ensure that new students are able to understand the constitution of the University as many issues have arose because students don’t know or understand these policies.
The University electoral commission general secretary, Aaron Kitratius Sempa, said the incoming guild president is yet to appoint candidates with whom he will govern other than those that were elected like the general secretary for the senate, senator faculty of health sciences, senator faculty of humanities and social sciences and senator faculty of business management.
The new guild president, Serebe Mark will have Sarah Musubika, a Bsc Public Health student as the general secretary, Zimbabwe’s Patience Mandiringa, a BSc Human Nutrition and Dietetics student as senator faculty of health sciences, Nalugya Victoria as senator faculty of business management and Martha Kenkwanzi as senator faculty of humanities and social sciences.
The student leaders were elected through a democratic process were students cast ballot papers to those that they preferred as leaders. Serebe becomes the University’s fourth guild president.
