Earlier today, I visited the Embassy of Sweden in Uganda where I had the pleasure to sign the agreement for extension of research support by the Swedish Government to Makerere University with H.E. Ambassador Per Lindgärde. This extension is for a 2 year period with an extra USD 4.5 Million.
The funding will enable Makerere and partnering Swedish universities complete the training of 100 PhDs for partner Ugandan Public Universities.
Bidding Farewell to H.E. Per Lindgärde
There was joy and yet a hard time when I bid farewell to H.E. Per Lindgarde, the Swedish Ambassador this afternoon. Makerere has enjoyed a wonderful relationship with the Embassy during his tenure and I wish him good health and success in his next assignment.
