The Makerere, East Africa and Uganda Flags fly in the wind on flagpoles overlooking the Freedom Square, Makerere University, Kampala Uganda.

For over 10 years consecutively, we have maintained our spot among the top 5 Universities in Africa. We also rank among the top 401-500 universities globally. This is according to Times Higher Education (THE) rankings released yesterday. Our medical school remains on top!

I congratulate the Makerere University community whose hard work has seen Makerere ranked No. 5 and our Medical School ranked No. 2 in Africa by THE.

I am overwhelmed by the messages of solidarity coming in from all over the world regarding the unfortunate destruction of our historic administration building.

We will soon inform all our stakeholders about arrangements to enable them make contributions to the restoration of the building. Thank you very much indeed.
