Today I was hosted as one of the panelists of the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Africa (RUFORUM)'s First Webinar Series. The theme for the Webinar was "Learning From A Crisis: University Leaders’ Response To The COVID-19 Pandemic". I discussed how Makerere University has responded to COVID-19 right from when I flagged off the donation of surgical masks to our partners Xiangtan University to our continued support to Government's efforts to fight against this pandemic. I also discussed how we are dealing with the issue of digital divide in the student community.
I thank Prof. Christine Dranzoa, Vice Chancellor, Muni University for chairing the session.

An Extraordinary Queen Elizabeth II
An extraordinary life has come to an end. Makerere University has been a major beneficiary of scholarships and research grants from the Association of Commonwealth Universities of which Queen Elizabeth II was the Patron. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family, the British people and the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU).

Today we hosted H.E. Dr. Aziz Ponary Mlima, High Commissioner of United Republic of Tanzania to the Republic of Uganda at the Julius Nyerere Leadership Centre to celebrate Nyerere at 100. We are proud of this gallant Makerere University alumnus, a great African freedom fighter and visionary leader. We also visited Nyerere’s former room in the Old Mitchell Hall, now Complex Hall.
