“Develop an independent thinking and Knowledge to create new things in your communities” – says Msgr. Gerald Kalumba on the 7th Graduation ceremony at the University Of Kisubi
The archbishop of Kampala Paul Ssemogerere has advised the graduands to base on the knowledge they have acquired in various institutions and bring out new things which are useful and developmental to the communities asking them to know where they are and what they want to be in life.
This was in his message delivered by the second Vicar General of Kampala Msgr Gerald Kalumba who represented him on the 7th graduation ceremony of the University of Kisubi (UNIK) held at Kisubi, Entebbe Municipality, where a total of 273 students were awarded degrees, diplomas and certificates in various disciplines.
He said it is unfortunate many graduates in Uganda have failed to develop an independent thinking and knowledge to create new things in their families, communities and country at large noting that universities like UNIK are places of research, a positive thinking, and wisdom according to the Catholic Church.
Bro. Casio Aizire who is the chancellor of UNIK informed graduates that they are graduating and entering the market world which is full of challenges due to the economic crisis and unemployment, advising them that God should come first in order to achieve success.
Meanwhile Ibanda North Member of Parliament Xavier Kyoma Akampurira who represented the speaker of parliament Annet Anita Among assured the general public that opportunities are available in this country but for those who are prepared and those who do things in a unique way thus good and impressing workers.
This year’s graduation runs under the theme “Witness to Hope”.
Some of the best students who scored the cumulative grade points include among others; Robert Nyeko graduating in Master of education leadership who scored 4.46 points, Sr. Maureen Kahindi from faculty of Education with 4.51.
