“Today we are celebrating 100 years of God’s faithfulness and acknowledging that in all success, there has been God. Thanksgiving is a sign of people’s gratitude towards God. I am glad that the University leadership thought it wise to thank the Lord and to commit the future to God.” Archbishop Kaziimba said.

“We thank God for the small beginnings with big surprises, small beginnings with big impact, mindful that whatever we begin is not ours but for the next generation. We are called to look to the future with faith.” Archbishop Kaziimba advised.

“There must be a deliberate effort to consider using dialogue to solve the problems affecting the University. It’s very bad for the University of intellectuals to use strikes and riots as a solution. It paints a bad image and does not portray the glory of God in Uganda’s premier public University.” Archbishop Kaziimba said.

He added, “My prayer is that the University continues to remain relevant with the world’s changing dynamics, continues to stand the challenges of this world and continue to magnify the glory of the Lord.”
