Former Makerere University guild president Ivan Ssempijja has graduated at Makerere University’s 72nd graduation ceremony.
Ivan Ssempijja who served as the 86th guild president graduated on Monday May 23rd, 2022 with a Bachelor’s degree in Medicine and Surgery.
Ssempijja is renown for his ‘melting magma’ slogan that made him do wonders as he became guild president having campaigned for only three days.
Ivan Ssempijja’s graduation sets another record as, unlike most of his predecessors, he was able to serve as guild president and as well successfully graduate.
A number of past Makerere University guild presidents had set a wrong precedence of leaders often neglecting their academics and end up not graduating.
Among other outstanding former student leaders that graduated is Winston Churchill Ruhayana who served as a guild speaker.
The Makerere 72nd opening graduation ceremony was graced by president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and first lady Janet Museveni.
Makerere University 72nd graduation commenced on Monday May 23rd, 2022 and 12,474 graduands are set to graduate in this 5-day ceremony.
