Launch of awards, perimeter wall project spice up Makerere graduation

As Makerere's 67th graduation ceremony commenced today, the university convocation chaired by Dr Tanga Odoi launched two projects that made the event even more colourful.

The first project is about awarding the best students in every college so as to build the spirit of competition and handwork, while the other is about erecting a perimeter wall around the whole university through fundraising. According to Tanga, the latter project is meant to beef up the security of the institution.
