Akampulira Brian, was a student at MUST who was murdered by unknown people on Thursday night near River Rwizi as he was going back to his hotel (Gents’ Flats) in the University. He has been one of the brightest students at the university, Campus Bee has learned.
Brian went to St Paul Nyakibale Seminary in Rukungiri for his O’level where he obtained 9 Aggregates. He later on joined BUDDO SS in Wakiso for his A’level under BRAC master card scholarship. He chose to do Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics (BCM/ICT) in which he managed to score 17 points in 2017 which enabled him to pursue Medicine and Surgery on government scholarship at Mbarara University of Science and Technology.
One of his classmates known as Jeremiah who has also been Brian’s OB from Buddo SS ,Described the late as the brightest friend he has ever had.
“Brian was unique, he used to sit at the back and engage in conversation with friends most of the time yet he was the best performer. We were once given a Mathematics paper which was extremely difficult, the rest of the class scored below 60% but Brian had 100.”
Although he was a first year Medical student, during holidays Brian had been practicing Medicine as an intern at Nyakibale Hospital in Rukungiri. “He was a people person, if I should say and we will dearly miss him” Jeremiah added.
Brian was laid to rest on Saturday 19th October 2019 at his ancestral home in Nyakibale, Rukungiri District.
