‘’This is the reason for the commencement the mobilization by the church of Uganda to support the university on the UCU Sunday and I would like to thank all clergies, christians and bishops that supported and participated in this initiative took place in September this year, he said.

He cautions them that as they are in the field, they should remember that the alumni of this university have established her reputation. Saying that this can only be maintained by not leaving out what UCU has been telling them and this is walking with Jesus.
