The Chairperson of the University Council, Hon. Manzi Tumubweinee and Prof. Nazarius Asingwire have donated academic and non-academic books to Kabale University. This took place at Kabale University, Vice Chancellor’s office on 19th June 2019.
Hon. Tumubweinee has written, among other books “Tears of Laughter,” a book containing words of wisdom, short stories and rib cracking jokes. He donated to the University Library twenty copies of this interesting book.
In his remarks and answers to journalists, Hon. Manzi blamed the poor reading culture today on the education system which right from the start trains students to pass exams rather than acquiring knowledge.
On the other side, Prof. Asingwire, a Professor at Makerere University College of Arts and Social Sciences donated eight copies of Professional Social Work in East Africa, towards Social Development, Poverty Reduction and Gender Equality, a text on social work edited by H. Spitzer, J.J. Twikirize and G.G. Wairire. Professor Asingwire had been providing technical support to the University during an interview exercise in which the University expects to recruit over one hundred staff over the 2019/2020 Financial Year.
Receiving the books together with Dr. Bernard Bazirake the University Librarian, Prof. Ezra Twezigomwe (Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academic Affairs) thanked the two Authors for the gesture noting that the donations were not only an academic value but also boost the reading culture amongst the students and the University Community.
