Sadness has once again engulfed the Makerere University community after Kiryowa John Michael, a final year student died in a motorbike accident on Thursday, 10th December.
More information indicates that Kiryowa, who has been pursuing Architecture for the last five years was a Lumumba resident who also doubled as a member of St. Augustine Catholic Community as well as the Arch Community.
His close pals mourn Kiryowa as a down to earth young man who was respected by many. A couple of Makerere University students have died during this lockdown including finalists who were just months away from graduation.
Below is a statement from Makerere’s outgoing Guild President Julius Kateregga regarding Kiryowa’s death;
Rest in Peace Kiryowa John Michael.
Makerere University has today lost a final year Student of Architecture. It hurts that after five years of the Struggle a Colleague dies as a result of motor bike accident.
My condolences go out to the family, Lumbox fraternity, St. Augustine Catholic Community where he has been a dedicated member, Arch Community and entire Student Community at the Hill.
Rest in Peace.
