Thomas Tayeebwa (L) and other officials at the unveiling of the Julius Nyerere Leadership Centre on 6th October 2018, Makerere University, Kampala Uganda

The President of the Republic of Uganda, H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has launched The Julius Nyerere Leadership Centre at Makerere University. The Centre is a collaboration between Makerere University and the Uganda Management Institute (UMI). It is premised on the concept of Ekyooto; a Luganda word for a fireplace where elders, or distinguished opinion leaders, sat and passed on their wisdom, and celebrated the legacy of those that were still alive or those that had passed on.

According to Prof. Edward K. Kirumira, Principal of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS), also Board Chairman, The Julius Nyerere Leadership Centre will develop a lasting legacy for learning and leadership development in Uganda and on the African Continent. It will establish a link between lived experiences of leaders and ideologies to creatively deliver a world-class sustainable and coordinated regional approach to experiential learning and leadership development. Other activities will include promotion of a community of academic expertise and youth engagement in governance and leadership in Africa; supporting and mentoring young leaders, early career scholars and practitioners to actively contribute to evidence-based research; as well as organizing presidential lectures and seminar series on leadership to offer a unique opportunity for distinguished leaders to provide leadership and mentoring as part of the cross generational transmission of values.
