I Okello Simon, do hereby bring to your knowledge at your disposal my manifesto upon which you can base on to gauge my ability to serve you as RESIDENT CAMPUS COMMISSIONER Namasagali campus, Bustema university for the period of 2013/2014 term of service as a potential candidate. Before coming up with this manifesto, it has come to my notice from the time of my stay here as a student, that Namasagali campus of Busitema university needs a focused leader who never gives room to compromise of students rights. And this is the time for us to locate and vote for OKELLO SIMON ready to deliver services for the good of us the students of Busitema University in these forth coming guild elections. I present this manifesto both to the students guild of Busitema university and the management of Busitema university as an epistle of genuine administration but mostly as a documentation of the achievable demands of students and thereby the necessity of a mutual and respectful synergy between the students guild of Namasagali campus and the management of Busitema university for transformation from the previous way of leadership towards enhancing students rights. The guiding tenets of this manifesto is to act as a basis upon which I can be assessed suitable and capable Resident Campus Commissioner of Namasagali campus during and after the soon guild elections, and upon which the elected CGRC will be held accountable. Back ground My first arrival at Busitema university, was when I was on my way to the search for academic glory that never ceases more so in this 21st century. Today I pride in the knowledge and scientific wisdom that I have harnessed as a result of my stay at Busitema University, Namasagali campus. During my incipient periods at Namasagali campus, I had hopes of a real university life, but since then I have been served with the reverse,

most of this being as a consequence of ignorance and reluctance of the guild leaders towards a advocating for students rights. Therefore, basing on this, I today weigh myself a capable and potential candidate to represent the student guild of Busitema university, Namasagali campus with the motion of STUDENT S RIGHTS FIRST. I am a born of eastern Uganda in Serere district. Pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Natural Resources Economics in my second year. Having seen and experienced the administrative gaps and weaknesses in the previous leadership of the student guild at this Campus, I have been faced by a strong willingness to champion a new cause of our campus but mostly by the spirit of serving the students guild at campus level and Busitema university with a major focus on students rights first.

The faculty should ensure reliability of the internet connections to enable alternative research work beyond the currently un available textbooks. 1.1 Students welfare The students welfare at Namasagali campus is not up to our expectations as students but this can be changed by the students guild; This is as a result of delayed feeding allowances, and faculty allowances that limit the students from accessing their basic needs in time; We understand that this may partly not be the responsibility of the students guild but with effective guild leadership that puts students rights first; This can change for betterment of the students Policy demand The CGRC should advocate for early delivery of the students allowances in order to let the students acquire their necessities The university should look into ways of assisting the privately sponsored students in terms on welfare since they also subscribe to the university students guild

Policy demand The holes of residence more so the one for male students mult-purpose should be partitioned to ensure that the students get privacy; This right of privacy is provided for by the constitution of the Republic of Uganda. 1.5 Non-residents This has been challenging my understanding ever since I reported to Namasagali campus; The welfare of the non-resident students tend not be concerned about by the guild; This is in terms of assisting them look for convenient places for residences and also visiting them to see how they are progressing; Policy demand The students guild of Busitema University should put in place arrangements to foster the welfare of the non-residents This is because; it is their right to be nonresidents but not their duty to be ignored by the university guild. 1.6 Associations The students guild body is comprised of a number of student associations at this campus, both cultural, developmental and environmental associations and more are still coming up. But these associations have face and are still facing numerous challenges as a result of less or no input of the students guild of the university.

The campus needs to have camps seats Policy demand The guild should open up guild projects like the canteen to ensure that the welfare of students is up held. The campus should have quality campus seats as an initiative of the guild 1.8 Games and sports On many occasions, Namasagali campus has been almost ignored when it comes to games and sports of the university; This has been inform delayed arrival the requirements for sports such as balls for practice, no facilitation of the coaches, and the other games at other campuses that Namasagali is required to take part in, but we do not have the necessities. Policy demand The guild should ensure fair distribution of the necessities for sports to Namasagali in order to enable us fully exercise our talents in sports and games. The guild should provide Namasagali campus with sports jazzes, shorts, boots and all the requirements for sports both ladies and gentlemen; This is a students right does not need compromise. CONCLUSION TO THE STUDENT/ ELECTORATES NAMASAGALI CAMPUS I present myself not as the best and most capable candidate since I do not know the measure of capability, neither do I align myself as the best speaker, but since leaders are judged by their works, I align myself as a potential contestant for the post of Resident Campus Commissioner, Leadership is about service delivery MAY GOD ENABLE YOU VOTE FOR OKELLO SIMON Students rights first FOR GOD AND MY CONUTRY BUITEMA UNIVERSITY PURSUING EXECELLENE +256787659671 simonokello90@gmail.com
