UCU alumna’s film makes mark at international film festivals

By Eriah Lule
Miika is a 14-year-old fictional character living in northern Uganda. As the story goes, her family had enough of the tyranny of the government forces and she took matters into her hands to save the day.

This 3D short animated film by the same name as the main character, “Miika,” is the darling of international film festivals and written and directed by Uganda Christian University (UCU) alum Shevon Nsiimenta. Already, it has won the Best Animation Film Category at the CineOdyssey Film Festival.

And that is not all. Nsiimenta says her film that lasts a little over five minutes has received a nomination at two other festivals, was a finalist at the Auber International Film Festival and also got an Official Selection at yet another festival – the Flickfair Film Festival.

At the Los Angeles International Film Festival, Nsiimenta was a nominee for the Best First Time Female Director, and her film, “Miika,” got a nomination for the Best Animation Film. All this is happening before the film hits the cinemas. Nsiimenta says it should be released soon.

The inspiration for Nsiimenta’s storyline is from the experience of watching or hearing about women and children who always end up as the primary victims of war and tyranny. And Uganda has lots of tales to tell about civil strife and tyrannical regimes.

From 1986 to 2006, there was civil war in northern Uganda, orchestrated by the Lord’s Resistance Army, a rebel group and terrorist organization. As a result of the war, many women in northern Uganda suffered rape, torture, murder, forced marriages and domestic violence.

The regime of former Ugandan President Idi Amin, which was from 1971 to 1979, has been largely described as tyrannical. It is, therefore, not surprising that Nsiimenta’s film is set in northern Uganda during the reign of Amin.

Since Nsiimenta loves movies, it became the natural medium for her to use to document the haunting tales and offer lessons on how one can easily see the back of the resulting trauma.

Despite the haunting tale of desperation that Miika’s family faced, Nsiimenta explains that she wanted to pass a message that no matter the number of horrors an individual faces, they can always turn tables on the oppressors.

“I chose a 14-year-old to deliver the family from its horrors because at that age, they are still innocently bold enough to take on the world,” says Nsiimenta, a 25-year-old graduate of Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Communication at UCU.

Miika is a short form for Malaika – a name that means Angel in Uganda.

“Indeed, I wanted Miika to be the angel for her family,” Nsiimenta, a scriptwriter, explains.

Perhaps, the success that “Miika” has so far achieved would not have been possible without the contribution of Kemiyondo Coutinho, a Ugandan playwright, actress and filmmaker based in Los Angeles.

In 2020, Kemiyondo launched an initiative to help up-and-coming Ugandan female filmmakers to bring their stories to life on screen. In a venture that saw her look to raise over $25,000 to be shared among five women to help facilitate the making of a five-minute short film, Kemiyondo reached well-wishers who were able to answer positively to her cause. That is how the production of “Miika” and other four short films got financed.

Nsiimenta is the daughter of the Rt. Rev. Dr. Sheldon Mwesigwa, the Bishop of Ankole Diocese in western Uganda and former Chairperson of UCU University Council. She attended Mbarara Preparatory School in western Uganda, before relocating to central Uganda, where she attended Kampala Parents School, Gayaza High School and, later, UCU. Nsiimenta says UCU instilled in her a sense of discipline, self-respect and smartness, virtues she has found useful in her professional and personal life.

But she also had something to learn from those who taught her. “I also had admirable women to look up to in my faculty. Prof. Monica Chibita and Dr. Emilly Maractho served as wonderful examples to base my image on at the workplace,” she says.

She currently works as the Executive Advertising Assistant at Roofings Uganda Limited, a manufacturer of steel and construction materials in Uganda.

Amponda’s gov’t secures modern litter bins, display screens

By Ivan Tsebeni

The 23rd guild government, headed by Kenneth Amponda Agaba, has procured three modern litter bins and six digital screens. These were installed yesterday at major blocks on the Uganda Christian University (UCU) campus. 

Former guild president, Amponda Kenneth Agaba, who spearheaded the project, says the procurement collectively cost Shs. 20 million, which the guild generated from students’ activity fees. 

The digital screens will aid the circulation of information to students from both the guild leadership and University administration. This, the outgoing guild cabinet believes, will reduce the use of paper posters on notice boards; a practice that used to contribute to littering of the campus when flyers fall off notice boards, to the ground. 

This project has come ahead of the official handover of the 23rd guild Government to the next, due Saturday, 18 December 2021. said Kenneth Agaba, the outgoing guild President of UCU.

“We are contributing to the university’s dream of turning fully into an e-campus. It will be remembered of us to have added this important milestone,” Amponda said, adding, “ This has been a collective effort of the 23rd guild government. We wanted to make sure the project is executed before we officially hand over power.” 

Talking about the project, the outgoing Guild Prime Minister Denis Kabila said the government has left a legacy that would last for years. “We purchased durable screens and litter bins which will last a very long time as a symbol of our legacy.” He called upon the current guild government to uphold the legacy of the 23 guild government and grow it further. 

The Director of Student Affairs (DOSA), Bridget K. Mugume, extended her gratitude towards Amponda and his cabinet for leading by example “ Amponda has been so consultative and that is why he has achieved a lot in his leadership.  May God reward him.” The DOSA plays an oversight role over the student guild’s activities. 

What students say:

The regime was faced with all negative factors that would have served as perfect excuses for other leaders to not deliver, but Amponda never gave up. The government fought for students to sit for exams even with tuition balances. This stood out for me- Racheal Mwikhoyo – third-year student of Bachelor Nursing Science

UCU Partners celebrates graduating journalists

By Ivan Tsebeni
A newsroom at the Uganda Christian University (UCU) Mukono campus has been hosting some of the Faculty of Journalism, Media and Communications students as they put into practice their classroom knowledge.

That newsroom was a convergence point for recent graduates in October 2020 to celebrate the completion of their Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Communication. The students graduated on October 22. To crown the get-together, the students cut cake that was offered by Mark Bartels, the Executive Director of the UCU Partners, an organization that raises public awareness about UCU in the United States.

In a meeting chaired by John Semakula, the UCU Partners e-lab Communications Coordinator head of the UCU journalism and media studies department expressed gratitude to the UCU Partners for offering them a platform to hone their skills in journalism.

“I never imagined becoming a writer,” Eria Lule, one of the graduating writers, said.  “I picked the inspiration from Mr. Semakula who always kept urging me to try it out.”

“I have acquired a lot of knowledge from the trainings I have undergone in the e-lab program. I will live to remember the project,” he added.

The e-lab project, rolled out in January 2021, was designed to offer an opportunity for UCU journalism students to get real-world experience. Sixteen students under the programme were part of the more than 3,000 who graduated at UCU on October 22.

Patty Huston-Holm, Partners communications director, designed the UCU/Uganda Partners e-lab model that is aligned with the university’s mission to prepare students for both continued learning and the world of work.

For the one year that the program has been running, emphasis has been put on writing and still photography, as well as video and audio products. 

Nicolette Nampijja, one of the students who has been producing podcasts, said the training had greatly sharpened her skills in creating podcasts.

“I had always wanted to produce podcasts, but I didn’t know how to go about it,” she said. “This is an opportunity for me to start out as a podcaster.”

Posing at the Partners e-lab, end-of-year celebration with students and recent graduates are Mark Bartels (fifth-left); Partners e-lab coordinator, John Semakula (seventh-left); UCU communications manager, Frank Obonyo (on Semakula’s left); and podcast mentor and UCU academic, Geoffrey Ssenoga (fourth from right, front row).

As of late November, UCU student-generated podcast episodes had aired on the topics of mainstream media, racial discrimination, fake pastors, sickle cell anemia, the life of Simon Peter and hate speech.

Jimmy Siyasa, one of the students and recent graduates, urged his colleagues to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge available under the e-lab project to hone writing skills. Siyasa, who got himself a job at the university’s communications department ahead of his graduation, noted that without the skills he learned from the e-lab, he would not have been considered for the job.

Siyasa’s colleagues in the e-lab program – Nickie Karitas and Dalton Mujuni – have been hired by New Vision, Uganda’s leading daily newspaper, for a further mentorship program as they hone their journalism skills.

Bartels congratulated the students upon reaching their convocation, saying it positions them for great job opportunities. 

“It feels good to hear that you are graduating, but it feels much better to hear that you have learned and we have contributed to the same,” he said.

“As you prepare to join your career world, ours is to pray that God will open doors for you,” Bartels added. “We look forward to continuing with this project and we will feel happy to see it grow.”

Semakula said that the idea to organize a cake-cutting party for the graduands came from Bartels, based in Pennsylvania, and Huston-Holm, who resides in the state of Ohio USA.

‘Uncle Mark’ on landing job at Next Media Services

By Derrick Muduku
To many, being the Guild President at Uganda Christian University’s (UCU) Kampala campus and doing comedy at the same time is mutually exclusive. That was not the case for Mark Agaba. In 2019, Agaba, a famous figure in the entertainment circles, won the contest to become the campus’ top student leader. 

The stand-up comedian, who goes by the stage name Uncle Mark, ably executed the two roles of comedy and student leadership.

His role as a student leader played a great part in Agaba scooping his most recent job as Public Relations Protocol Executive at Next Media Services, a media company in Uganda. Next Media Services owns NBS TV, Next Radio, news site Nile Post and Sanyuka TV. 

“As Public Relations Protocol Executive, I am tasked with writing press releases, and reaching out to people who are engaging with our media outlets,” Agaba said. “This opportunity means a lot to me. I’m also expected to co-ordinate activities of Next Media Services with partner international media organizations, such as CNN and BBC.”

“I discovered my funny side during conversations with my friends,” he said. “Whenever I was around my peers, my comments would always leave them in stitches.” Agaba said that is what propelled him to take comedy more seriously and nurture his talent. 

Agaba credits the virtues he learned at UCU for carving him into the person he is today. 

“It is the virtues of Christ-centeredness, diligence, integrity and stewardship that I honor in every field of my life,” he said. “I have not found any better waves of transformation than these.”

Just how did Agaba manage to balance books, comedy and leadership? 

“I endeavored to make the time for books, since I believed in leading, even in academics,” Agaba says. “I also have to give credit to the competent team with whom I served during my tenure as Guild President. I am grateful to my Vice President of the Guild leadership, Jemimah Jehopio, and the different heads of departments for their diligent service. They made my work a lot lighter and enjoyable.” 

Phoebe Namujehe, the immediate past Guild President of UCU Kampala Campus, said Agaba, who was her predecessor, was a tolerant, humble, hardworking and committed leader. 

Namujehe said Agaba often lit up the mood at the campus with his comedy. “Even as he read his manifesto, he was comical,” she said of the son of Jane Agaba and the late Godfrey Agaba from Kabale district in southwestern Uganda.

Before joining UCU, Agaba acquired a Bachelor of Arts in Economics at Makerere University. At UCU, he studied in the Bachelor of Social Work and Social Administration program. 

Now that he has found his way onto the staff list of a major broadcaster in Uganda, Agaba says he will use the opportunity to further nurture his love for communication.

NIRA recruits UCU graduate interns

By Derrick Brian Muduku

The National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA), in a bid to quicken their citizen registration and certification activities, have recruited at least 50 graduate interns from Uganda Christian University (UCU).
Under this apprenticeship, the interns will support the digital registration of citizens, who later will be granted National Identification Cards. This is hands-on training that the University has embraced as beneficial to its students, the institution itself, and the Mukono community at large.
“We thank NIRA for allowing us to be the pioneers of this project that will cut across to other universities,” said Bridget Mugume K. Mugasira, the Director of Student Affairs at UCU,
She added that this project is UCU and NIRA’s corporate social responsibility because it is not only benefitting University students, but pupils from primary and secondary schools within Mukono municipality.”
NIRA camped at the UCU old football pitch on Monday, 03 December, to start their activities. Besides registration for National Identification cards (ID), they are also offering: replacement of lost IDs, birth certificates, checking status quo of IDs pending issuance, sensitization on the services of NIRA, etc.
This will go on for the next two weeks, after which, a major launch of the project will happen, and see it spread to other universities as well.

Gilbert Kadilo, the NIRA Manager of Public Relations and Corporate Affairs noted that while the graduate interns are helping to cover a human resource gap, they will also learn valuable skills.
“We decided to identify these students, train them and engage them to do the work. We do not have enough resources readily available to do all this work on our own,” he said.
Kadilo emphasised the importance of a National ID to Ugandan youth in regard with the current times.
“There are young Ugandans who have never registered for an ID. We are here to ensure that they get their cards because they need them,” he said.
He also commended UCU for accepting to host the activity, given the ongoing serious health and security concerns.
“UCU was quick to welcome the initiative, which I believe is part of their character and we appreciate it,” said Kadilo.
Over 150 students applied for the opportunity, but only 50 were selected based on geographical proximity to the registration center, academic performance and flexibility among others.

By Ian Asabo

The UCU Canons defeated the Namugongo Blazers, 61-58, in a closely contested final, to win the first “Invite” basketball tournament held at the YMCA court in Wandegeya. The winner, ‘Canons’ walked away with the sum of Shs 2m while the runner-up took home the sum of Shs 1.5m.

Sima, Sabiti to lead UCU’s Guild Parliament

By Ivan Tsebeni

After a hotly contested race, Sima Liisa has been enthroned Uganda Christian University’s (UCU) Guild Speaker, with Aman Sabiti as her Deputy.  Sima polled 10 votes beating her closest rival Abigail Dawn Ampumuza who scored a total number of 8 votes. This happened in the rerun after the first poll ended in a draw where both candidates garnered 7, with Mark Kezaala trailing with 5 votes.

The elections were presided over by the outgoing Guild Speaker of the 23rd Parliament, Calvin Olupot Bahati. The electorates were the newly elected Guild Members of Parliament.

The first parliamentary session was held at Internation Christian Medical Institute (ICMI) hall opposite the Guild Canteen, at the UCU main campus, shortly after the swearing-in ceremony.

The new parliamentary bosses, Sima and Sabiti were thereafter sworn in and handed over instruments of power including the guild constitution, rules of procedure, and regalia.

“The fact that I won, there is no doubt, all people voted for me and I am ready to work with all of them. The expectations are high, fears and uncertainties exist but together we should build friendship, mend the bridges and work together, ” Sima said after assuming office.

The deputy-speaker elect,  Mr. Sabiti acknowledged the need to ensure the independence of the parliament as one arm of the government saying it is what he will focus on during his tenure.

“I am willing to serve the people. I want to instill the aspect of independence and working within the guild constitution in order to reap the maxim harvest,” Sabiti said in an interview.

This was the first seating of the 24th Guild government after it was voted in on November 24, 2021. It is the first-ever activity that followed the swearing-in that happened earlier in the day at Nkoyoyo Hall. During this, the congregation witnessed the new Guild President Ms. Racheal Mirembe Sserwadda and her officials take the oath.

It should be recalled that Sserwadda is the third female Guild President after Blessed Murungi in 2014 and Prisca Amongin in 2016. Sserwadda will officially receive instruments of power on December 18.

The guild Parliament is expected to sit and approve new Guild ministers who by press time had not been identified by Guild President.

UCU students graduate from UN Campus programme


At least 15 students of Uganda Christian University (UCU) have graduated from Millenium Fellowship, a semester-long Leadership Programme that advances the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Majority of the graduates, at the virtual graduation ceremony held on Wednesday, 17 November 2021, were female.
They will be issued Certificates, having fulfilled all the requirements of the online mentorship program to which they enrolled in August 2021, alongside thousands of University students all over the world. Some of the Ugandan institutions involved were Makerere, Gulu, Ndejje Universities, among others.
During the course of four months, the participants (Class of 2021) learned an array of skills including Leadership, project management, social networking, among others. The UCU Campus Director of Millennium Fellowship, Peter Kabuye, a fourth-year student pursuing Bachelor of Dental Surgery says the Fellowship has played a pivotal role in expanding his team’s professional network, including himself.

“I and my colleagues have been given an opportunity to network with students from various campuses of UCU and universities worldwide, he said,” adding “ I was able to meet like-minded people that have visions and beliefs similar to mine.”
Kabuye urges other students from UCU to enroll for the virtually-oriented fellowship whose application window is open for the Year 2022.” Millenium Fellowship is “ an opportunity to network with respected worldwide leaders of all walks of life,” he argues.
On her part, Syndia Chemutai, a fourth-year student of Bachelor of Laws is excited to be contributing to the SDGs, having been equipped through the Fellowship.
Due to various challenges, including poor internet connectivity, some five students did not graduate. They had to have attended all Zoom sessions held during the nearly four-month-long Fellowship.
The Millennium Campus Network (MCN) is a Boston-based, global Not-for-profit in Partnership with the UN Academic Impact. Each year it selects 20 students from different University campuses to develop projects that advance the 17 UN SDGs.

UCU welcomes students for in-person studies

By Joseph Lagen
For the first time in five months, Uganda Christian University (UCU) welcomed students on its campuses for in-person learning. The development follows a September directive by Uganda President Yoweri Museveni, allowing universities to commence physical teaching after education institutions were shut in June 2021, after a second wave of Covid-19.

According to an October 28 letter to all students and staff of UCU, Vice-Chancellor Assoc. Prof. Aaron Mushengyezi said freshly admitted first-year students who joined in September would report on November 1 for additional orientation sessions. Mushengyezi said the first-year students would then migrate to blended learning – online and in-person – starting December 4 before they sit for their exams from January 3 to 17, 2022.

“Continuing students who have been studying virtually will report on November 8, 2021, for face-to-face classes in a phased manner,” Mushengyezi wrote, noting that they will then take their examinations from December 4 to 17, 2021. 

UCU Communications Manager Frank Obonyo said the institution is not allowing all the continuing students at once because of “escorting potential health risk.” 

“We prioritized first years – the rest will have blended studies,” he said.

Museveni directed all education institutions to close, starting June 7, to reduce concentration centers that the government argued were increasing infection rates of the pandemic. At the time, the Covid-19 cases in the country had gone up by 137%. It was the second time that education institutions were closed in Uganda as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. 

In March 2020, Uganda closed all schools to reduce the chances of Covid-19 infection on learners. In October 2020, final-year students were allowed back to school for in-person learning as they prepared to take examinations. The rest of the classes, with the exception of lower primary, were allowed back to school for in-person learning starting March 2021. However, that excitement was cut short by a surge in the Covid-19 infection rate, necessitating the closing of schools in Uganda, again after only three months of opening. 

On June 18, 2021, the Ugandan government imposed a total lockdown on movement, with the Covid-19 positivity rate at 17% at the time. However, the lockdown was lifted at the end of July 2021, with many of the sectors of the economy being opened for operations. For the sectors that are still closed, such as the entertainment industry and bars, Museveni said in a televised address on October 28 that they will be opened fully in January 2022, whether people go for Covid-19 vaccinations or not.

According to the President, by the end of December 2021, the country will have received 23 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines of two per person for more than 12 million people, including 4.8 million frontline workers.

As UCU welcomes its staff and students for in-person learning, the institution has set up its university health facility, the Allan Galpin Health Centre, for vaccinations. The condition for in-person learning, according to Government, is that all institution staff and students above 18 years should be vaccinated. 

Despite the two lockdowns – of 2020 and 2021 – on education institutions, UCU continued with online learning. At UCU’s 22nd graduation ceremony held on October 22, Uganda’s First Lady and Education Minister Janet Museveni congratulated the institution for its “robust online education programme” and encouraged the university to share best practices with other institutions. 

At a recent virtual dialogue to discuss the impact of Covid-19 on academic institutions, Mushengyezi said UCU had invested in infrastructure of electronic learning and, therefore, “has something to share with other institutions.” 

Due to the robust online operations infrastructure, Obonyo said UCU was able to conduct online semesters, plus other virtual activities, such as virtual guild elections, conferences, and pre-entry exams for students for courses in law, medicine, and dentistry. 

The university has locally developed two online applications to supplement the use of tutoring e-services in its operations. These are the Alpha MIS for student registration and the E-Chagua, which the university uses during virtual elections. 

Among some of its other virtual activities, from October 14-16, the UCU Faculty of Journalism, Media and Communication (FJMC) hosted the 10th Annual East African Communication Association Conference.
