Chavula was declared the winner after he amassed 32 votes against his main opponent, Elson Chauluka, who got 23 votes. Chavula succeeds Prisca Phiri from the HR department.
Speaking after the declaration of election results, Chavula pointed out the priority areas his executive will focus on while in office.
“I will try my best to address the gaps that have for so long been there in the Association. I will sit down with the new executive, work on membership and review the association’s constitution,” he said.
Nevertheless, Chauluka from Mechanical Engineering will take the position of Vice President.
The polls were organised and administered by MUBAS Sports administrator, Chifundo Tenthani and the out going president Prisca Phiri.
Some members opted to vote in person, while others voted virtually to keep a non-overcrowding atmosphere as one way of observing Covid-19 preventive measures.
Others who have won various positions for the association are; Richard Mulinga from the Library as the Treasurer, and John Matepuwa from Mathematics department as the General Secretary.
The president also stressed his intention to liaise with the management and outside world to ensure that sports materials such as jerseys, balls and equipment for all sporting activities are made available.
MUBAS Staff Sports polls are held every two years to elect new office bearers to fill all vacant positions of the association after the expiry of term of office.
The office bearers are responsible for all sporting activities such as football, netball, basketball, just to mention a few, that the staff participate in.
