Makerere University as part of the 90 Years Grand Finale celebrations on 3rd August 2013 recognized the Mr. Grace Wilson Mutekanga Igaga for his role in composing the University Anthem.

Mr. Mutekanga Igaga who received a standing ovation from the congregation as he received his award from The Chancellor Professor George Mondo Kagonyera was accompanied by his wife Mrs. Frances Mutekanga and other members of his family.

In presenting the award, The Chancellor had this to say, “As we celebrate the 90 Years of Makerere University, I take this singular honour of recognizing the composer of one of the most beautiful anthems, I have ever listened to.”

The 70 year old composer of the Makerere University Anthem then thrilled the congregation by singing a stanza of the coveted Anthem; with the finesse and articulation that only the original composer could muster, and the thunderous applause that followed was of equal recompense.

In his acceptance speech, the jovial Alumnus said, “With big humility, I stand before you, to thank you Mr. Vice Chancellor and your administration for every effort. I thank the Makerere University community for accepting my commodity. I say to the entire world, I feel honoured. I have never imagined that I would receive this honour when I am still alive. I am very grateful for the Award.”

The Grand Finale celebrations were presided over by The Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Amama Mbabazi and attended by former President of Kenya and Alumnus, H.E. Dr. Mwai Kibaki, Gen. Elly Tumwine, Education and Sports Minister, Hon. Jessica Alupo, State Minister for Higher Education Dr. John Chrysostom Muyingo, The Chairperson Council Eng.
