Despite his physical disability, he was able to run for the top political office at the college. Kunya aims to bridge the gap between college administration and students in order to resolve issues with blended learning, which was implemented by university administration during the post-Covid era.
“I am very eager to increase student engagement with the administration in order to build a bridge between the two parties, given the fact that I am a social worker”. Kunya said.
The 30-year-old is in his second year of a Bachelor of Social Work and Social Administration program. Kunya believes he will use his course to run the college student fraternity in the most creative way possible.
Gerald Wambalya, the outgoing president, stated that his administration attempted to bring the two parties, students and administration, to the same table, and that he believes they laid a very solid foundation for the new incoming government to operate on.
“I believe with collective efforts rendered the new incoming government have at least where to start from in harnessing all policies with the administration”, he said.
But who is Kunya

Kunya plays wheelchair basketball, volleyball, and table tennis. He holds a diploma in tourism and hotel management from Muteesa 1 Royal University and a certificate from the Village Savings and Loans Association.
