Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves today, January 23,2024 paid a visit to the University in Uganda, where he spent time as a doctoral student decades ago.
“Today I returned to Makerere University in Uganda where I spent about a year as a doctoral student almost 52 years ago. The outpouring of love by the faculty was quite moving,” states a post on the Prime Minister’s Facebook page.
A brief statement from his office reads in part “The Prime Minister was accorded a tour of the campus, where he met the faculty and students and even visited his former dormitory.”
A signpost on the premises of the University reads: Makerere University We Build For The Future since 1922.
The Prime Minister has been in the East African country attending the Third South Summit of the Group of 77 and China held January 21-22. He headed a four-member St Vincent and the Grenadines delegation to the Summit.
