PIC: The President Elect- Franklin Kadewere
After MUBAS Management nullified the results of the previous Student Union Elections on the presidential position, Franklin Kadewere has emerged the winner again in the rerun.

The elections took place on June 23, 2021 where students were voting virtually.

According to the press release by the current Electoral Commission Chairperson Mark Sandels Theu, Kadewere got 1099 votes against Martin Manyozo’s 1070 votes.

The previous Electoral Commission declared Kadewere a winner after it disqualified the other contender Martin Manyozo because of some irregularities.

This result did not sit well with Manyozo who sought assistance from Management. A new Electoral Body was selected which has been in charge of the Fresh Elections.

In his remarks, the excited Kadewere expressed his gratitude to the MUBAS community for trusting him with this position.

“It was really hard going through the same process again but then the good thing is that this time I had more support from all angles; year 1, 2,3,4 and 5 which made the whole campaign easier,” said Kadewere.

The President Elect further said that since many people who voted for him last semester are out for attachments from year 4 and 3, he saw that his chances of winning were low hence he had to build up a team to make a strong base of first year students. 

Meanwhile, the opponent Manyozo has sent a congratulatory message to Kadewere for winning. He further applauded the Electoral Commission for handling the whole process with professionalism.

They both thank Management for intervening in the dispute and resolved it amicably by appointing a new Electoral Body for a re run which has been credible and transparent.
