Newly elected Guild President. Mr. Ssaka Bashiri.

Ssaka Bashir is now the President Elect of Buganda Royal Institute after his landslide victory against his only opponent Muddu Thomas in a Friday 1stApril 2022 poll.Bashirsets a precedent as the first person to ever win Guild elections without initialsupport of female students as the culture has been before. Bashir also survived the block vote of students from Technical Department to emerge as the winner against his competitor who hails from the same department that has always decided the outcome of BRIBTE guild president poll. Bashir is a second year student of Business Administration while his opponent Thomas belongs to the Technical Department.

Bashir attributed his win to the way he packaged his message that seems to have touched every voter’s soul ahead of the polling day at the grand campaigns held on 31st March 2022. Ssaka does not underestimate the contribution from his agents and he had this to say;

 “This is not my win rather a students’ win. Am just a leader in this cause. Students made a statement and they showed that they really have a voice. As I always said, ‘students’ power, our power’” said Bashir.

He also said that this win is a product of honesty, determination and his trust in God.

His competitor Thomas conceded and wished his him a good times as Guild President of BRIBTE. The elections also involved election of hall Chairpersons and Guild Representatives from the different Halls of attachment. Both Guild and Hall aspirants thanked the Electoral Commission for the good conduct of the electoral process in a free and fair manner.

Ssaka awaits the swearing in ceremony yet to be communicated by the Office of the Dean of Students.
