The Union brings together students party faithfuls from over 100 universities and higher institutions of learning across the country.


Tension started to build up in the afternoon during the nomination process when one of the delegates from Kyambogo University was disqualified by the EC from standing because information from his University Chapter was not corresponding with what he presented at the nominations.


A section of students led by the Kyambogo delegation stormed out the tents at started exchanging hotly with EC officials as well as other party leaders.


Party Secretary, General Alice Alaso, and Shadow Information Minister, Hon Nabila Sempala, intervened to calm the students, while police closely monitored the situation.


By press time the EC was preparing to ‘revisit the voting rules and procedures to see whether the aggrieved party’s concerns could be accommodated.’


Later speaking to our reporter, Hon Nabila, however, described the fight as non-colossal and healthy for the party.


“This is a new students’ body, whose structures are only weeks old. Most of the rules and guidelines these students found here and surely we expected this to happen.”
