It is a somber mood all over Makerere University community upon the demise of a student slated for graduation in January.
Coleb Tumanyane from the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences (CAES) was expecting to graduate in with a Bachelor of Science in Forestry at the forthcoming 74th ceremony.
Preliminary sources indicate that Tumanyane died yesterday, Monday 20th November, 2023 after ulcers and malaria intensified in the past three days.
A close friend eulogised him as an active member of the Forestry Fellowship and Makerere University Christian Fellowship during his stay at the university, noting that he will be remembered for serving God wholeheartedly.
Burial arrangements are under way and more details to be shared.
It’s so Saddening to learn about the passing on of our colleague Tumanyane Coleb from @MakCAES SFEGs. My thoughts and condolences to the friends and family, we as @Makerere have been robbed of a future Champion of Change. Rest well Coleb 🙏🏿 pic.twitter.com/VQ9xis0lpi— Wandukwa Simon Gyabi (@wandukwa_simon) November 20, 2023
