Students take Makerere University to court over delayed guild elections
Members of the Makerere University students guild electoral commission have threatened to sue the university over a delay to approve the resumption of the students guild electoral process.
In a letter seen by Campus Cam, the applicants argue that the university council is ‘dragging its feet’ over the decision to issue a no-objection letter for the elections to be held.
The administration had agreed to let the elections go on scientifically but was yet to consider the provision for voting electronically, thus the process remained suspended.
Attempts to lift the ban have been unsuccessful and the students guild electoral commission is now seeking legal action.
Check out the letter below for an insight into the events surrounding this gridlock.
