Gulu University Guild Speaker ‘Fired’ Over Electoral Fraud Allegations

Gulu University Guild Speaker ‘Fired’ Over Electoral Fraud Allegations

The Gulu University Election Tribunal yesterday resolved to annul the elections that brought to power fourth-year medicine and surgery student, Acidri Phillip claiming that it involved a lot of malpractice.

The action was sparked by the petition filed by Acidri’s beaten rival, second-year Law student, Otim Kennedy. The Tribunal then decided to denounce the newly elected speaker.

In response to the petition, the Tribunal has released a “standing order” to the speaker and directed that the elections are held afresh.

In a meeting held on May 2, the committee revealed that the previous elections disfigured Article 22 of the Guild constitution.
