By Israel Kisakye
The Uganda Christian University (UCU) Faculty of Agricultural Science bids farewell to Assoc. Prof. Elizabeth Balyejusa Kizito, the outgoing Dean, as she early this year assumed a new university position as the head of the Directorate of Research, Partnerships and Innovation.

The send-off took place recently at the International Christian Medical Institute building at the UCU main campus in Mukono.

During the farewell, Dr. John Livingstone Mutyaba, a senior lecturer in the faculty, thanked Kizito for being a good mentor to everyone in the faculty.

“We still need your guidance, we shall miss you physically, but we know you are still with us,” Mutyaba said. “You have always guided me on family success and I will forever acknowledge you.”

Dr. Rosemary Bulyaba, the incoming dean of the faculty, together with her team, presented the gift (a refrigerator) to Kizito and also congratulated her upon the new post.

Kizito said she was glad to have worked with a team like the one she had at the faculty. She encouraged the team to always work harder and to value time. She promised to continue supporting the team in whatever way she can.
