A section of Kumi university students’ leaders have vowed to contest for all national leadership positions in the forthcoming elections.
These leaders under the leadership of Mr. Engole Emmanuel, Mr. Naboth Ameru, Ms. Gloria Debenna, Mr. Okiria John Baptist and Gempa Debwai say that the aging leaders have for over years alleged that youth are the future leaders but such leaders dont practically put their claims to a reality.
While meeting the THE ALTERNATIVE national cordinator Mr. Norman Tumuhimbise Liberty on Friday afternoon at the university’s annual open leadership forum they said that living on aging leaders’ promises should be got rid of.
“We have resolved to stand and contest for all national elective positions in the forth coming elections than always lamenting” One of the student leaders vowed.
“All members who have participated in today’s forum should bare in minds that we are leaders of today not tomorrow hence we have to directly participate in any elections that come accross our way than mere voting for aging and fading leaders” Another leader stated.
In his response, Mr. Tumuhimbise who was the key guest speaker appealed to these students leaders to always be resilient, corruption enemies and above all be patrotic in whatever they do.
“Once you realise your leadership abilities please respond immediately because there is no another tomorrow than today and once you act, please do so patrotically, consistently and above all never be friends to corruption”. Mr. Tumuhimbise responded”
“Remember our country’s history, can take me as an example of how i have been mistreated, tortured, kidnapped and detained by the regime but without turning back and as the youths, this is what we should do” Tumuhimbise added.
