The Chancellor of Uganda Christian University (UCU), the Most Rev. Dr. Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu, recently paid a visit to the university. The late March 2022 visit to UCU main campus in Mukono was part of Kaziimba’s regular pastoral visits to the university.
Part of Kaziimba’s delegation was the University Council Chairperson, the Rt. Rev. Prof. Alfred Olwa. Kaziimba said he was excited to be “back home,” when the institution is marking 25 years of existence and the university’s iconic structure, the Bishop Tucker Building, marks 100 years.
During the visit, Kaziimba launched the Kodwo and Maxine Ankrah University Hostel. Prof. Eleanor Maxine recently leased an estate that belongs to her and her late husband, Canon Kodwo Ankrah, to UCU for setting up a resource centre, accommodation space for students, as well as office space. The hostel that Kaziimba launched is part of the estate that was leased to UCU.
During Kaziimba’s recent visit, he used the opportunity to preach at a UCU community worship service in Nkoyoyo Hall. He later graced a public lecture at the university’s Principal’s Hall. The public lecture, which was part of events to mark 25 years of UCU and 100 years of Bishop Tucker Building, was held under the them Key Events during UCU’s Transition from College to University.
