Just as Anna Adeke Ebaju did it at Makerere University, Madinnah Zalwango,22, also wants to try her luck at Nkumba University. And one Doreen Ashaba (NRM) has come out to race with four other men for the same post at the embattled Kyambogo university.
Anna was the only girl in the guild race at MUK and the same applies to Madinnah. Though Anna contested on the FDC ticket, Madinnah says she will run as an independent candidate in the coming guild campaigns at Nkumba as Guild president 2013/14.
Guild elections at Nkumba will be held on 20th April while those of Kyambogo will be conducted on 25th March.
Concerning the ongoing marriage and divorce bill in parliament, sources reveal that Anna has already seen and said yes to someone’s proposal, but Madinnah’s relationship status is not known although she claims to be single and seriously settled.
The trend is changing, more girls are picking interest in taking up leadership at universities. One wonders if ladies can make a difference that many men have failed to do. The ball still remains in your hands!
