The Gulu University bazaar is an annual event organised by the guild government of each academic year aimed at offering students both newly admitted and continuing with products and services at fairly affordable prices as well as convenience with accessibility. This year, the team is being headed by the guild minister of national and foreign affairs, Otim Francis and a 10 man team.
The guild government usually reaches out to numerous business persons dealing in diversities of goods and services, offers them space and other facilities to enable them relocate full or partial sections of their businesses with the university premises so as to offer goods and services to students having paid a small fee to the guild office.
With the university population expected to shoot though the sky in the next few days, the already ongoing business bazaar is expected to get more exciting. Very many local business persons have turned up with goods and services and many more have promised to come as more students report, the guild finance minister, Chris Karyorugwokwe said.
Business entities that have already been in attendance include; DFCU, Centenary Bank, Bank of Africa, Stanbic bank, Total Gas, Hashi Gas, numerous dealers in electronics, food vendors, printing and press business entities, house hold materials and so many more.
The guild government aims at constructing an incinerator having collected the proceeds from this year’s university bazaar. This was brought to light during a press conference where the guild prime minister Kakaum Denise who also works as a presenter at Radio Mega in Gulu town was making his speech to the media team. This rises from the absence of a university constructed incinerator yet having a large population that necessitates an incinerator at the university premises.
An incinerator is a furnace for burning waste. Incineration involves the high-efficiency combustion of certain solid, liquid, or gaseous wastes.
