Incoming guild President for Nkumba University Sunday Amagule is confident he will be able to govern the Students Guild despite prevailing challenges and history of his predicesor’s troubled term at the helm.
Amagule replaces Byron Luswata who throughout his term of office disagreed with the Students Council, Minister’s and guild which later led to an unsuccessful impeachment process, thanks to the University leadership including the Vice Chancellor Prof Muinda Mande and the Entebbe security detail.

An independent, he managed to appeal to the cross generational, young and old, from all Political parties in February to win a competitive race that included NRM’s Otaremwa Opira Opra.
He however couldn’t serve after President Yoweri Museveni closed all academic institutions, in a bid to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus Disease.
And that is the main reason I was elected in office.” He says.
Asked if he fears challenges his predicesors Byron Luswata faced, Amagule indicated that he is ready to learn from the different people within the council and guild leadership.
“I will listen to all people, especially when we disagree.”
Some of the services he hopes to streamline include the fees and teaching policies and the feeding at the school among others.
Currently, Nkumba despite it strategic position has been enforcing reforms that led to the sacking of more than 10 staff including the University Public Relations Officer Richard Echweru.
The 24 year old went to St Charles Lwanga SS Koboko and the Powerful Ombaci SS, all in West Nile for his secondary education.
