Court blocks Makerere from disqualifying NUP guild presidential candidate


KAMPALA– The High Court in Kampala has issued an interim order restraining Makerere University from disqualifying Ms Judith Nalukwago, a student, from participating in the Guild Presidential elections.  

Court presided over by Justice Emmanuel Baguma on Friday held that Ms Nalukwago was duly nominated by the university and therefore should be allowed to campaign for now.

“An interim order of injunction doth issue restraining the respondents and their agents from disqualifying the applicant or otherwise setting aside her certificate of academic standing until the main application M.A no. 341 of 2021 is disposed of on Monday,” the court order reads in part.

Ms Nalukwago is facing four other candidates in the Makerere University guild Presidential race.

They include; Mr Joshua Mutabazi of the Alliance for National Transformation (ANT), Mr Joseph Tumusiime (Independent), and Mr Aaron Oguttu (NUP leaning).
