Makerere University alumni push for Rwandan branch campus

Makerere University Rwanda Alumni Association (MURWAA) seeks to start a campus in Rwanda as the Ugandan institution celebrates 100 years of existence, writes Patrick Nzabonimpa for The New Times.

According to Shukuru Bizimana Ruyondo, chairman of MURWAA, they are set to work with partners, sponsors and Makerere University itself so that people living in Rwanda can learn and get their degrees from Rwanda instead of going to Kampala in Uganda. Inaugural operations will be announced by 2024.

Makerere University is ranked among the top 1,000 best universities in the world and top five in Africa as far as research and quality education is concerned. Many Rwandans have studied at the university, and according to Ruyondo, MURWAA currently has over 1,000 members.
