WHS Regional Meeting Africa 2021: My Message
Over 400 PhDs Courtesy of Swedish Collaboration
During the tenure of the Ambassador of Sweden to Uganda, H.E. Per Lindgärde and his predecessor H.E. H.E. Urban Andersson, Makerere accomplished the most ambitious staff development programme at any University, training more than 400 PhDs and many Masters. The capacity for research built is enormous. Thank you Sweden.
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.
