Namilyango at 114

Namilyango College School, the oldest and one of the leading secondary schools in Uganda, has celebrated 114 years of its existence.

The Saturday function that was marked with a number of activities including a special church service in the morning and sports in the afternoon was graced by former bishop of Lugazi Diocese, Mathias Ssekamanya.

Hundreds of Old Boys (OBs), including Prof. Semakula Kiwanuka, a former Ambassador of Uganda to the United Nations (UN), attended the event. Kiwanuka was a student at the school between 1951 and 1955.

Current headmaster Gerald Muguluma said the school’s board of governors agreed to hold annual celebrations to remember the day the school was founded.
