The Masaka Municipality MP made the remarks during function at St. Henry’s Kitovu aimed at raising Shs 1.5 bn for the construction of a dormitory.

“Your Excellency, I inform you that Masaka is doing so well in Universal Primary Education. Even when other areas are struggling, Masaka continues to register very good results,” added Mpuuga.

The statement excited crowds as stunned NRM officials spoke in hushed tones.

The MP in has recent months been leading opposition protests in Kampala, political activities that have since paralysed business and traffic in the city.

The flattering remark is likely to convince political observers that Mpuuga has a special admiration for some of Museveni’s works though he on several occasions accuses him of ‘dictatorship.’

In attendance are Bishop of Masaka, Rt. Rev. John Baptist Kaggwa and Vice President, Edward Ssekandi and Presidency Minister, Hon Frank Tumwebaze.

John Ssebaluma represented members of Kwagalana Group.

Commander Kampala Metropolitan, AIGP Andrew Kaweesi also participated in mobilizing of funds for the construction of the dormitory.

The college was established in 1922 by the White Fathers. Later, the Brothers of Christian Instruction took over the administration of the school.

Today, the all-boys boarding school caters to Ordinary Level (“O” Level) and Advanced Level (“A” Level) classes. The student body is estimated at about 1,010.

Academically, St. Henry’s College Kitovu ranks among the best secondary schools in Uganda. As an example, in 2007, the college produced the top eight “O” Level graduates in the entire District of Masaka.

Some of the notable Old Boys of the school include Gen Elly Tumwiine, former Vice President Gilbert Bukenya, Hon Ken Lukyamuzi and Paul Kawanga Ssemwogerere.
