According to the UTAMU Public Relations Officer, Ms Rebecca Pearl Tumwebaze, the University is ready to support its students and staff to engage in activities that have the potential to improve Ugandan communities.

“At UTAMU, we don’t only dwell on academics. Our students are taught much more, including values of social responsibility; it is no doubt that our Rotaracts are taking this direction,” Ms Rebecca said.

The launch of RUTAMU was filled with pomp and brought several dignitaries from various Rotary clubs in and around Kampala.

Alex Tumwizere, a Bachelor of Business Administration student, was unanimously elected President of the club, while Grace Kukundakwe, a Bachelor of Information Systems and Technology student, was voted Vice President.

Dr. Robert Rutaagi, the chairman of the Rotary Club of Kampala while launching RUTAMU, urged Rotaracts to use their skills and dedicate their time to transform their communities and be of service to the people in Uganda and beyond.

“Rotary is a club that brings together people who are rich at heart and yearn to bring about a positive change in their communities,” Rutaagi revealed.

The launch was attended by Rotarians Richard Masereje, Barbra Sekadde, Jeniffer Sekitoleko, Angela Ntege and Geoffrey Ayebare.

Ms Barbra Sekadde, Director Youth Service of the Rotary Club of Kampala Day-Break while giving a key note address at the launch revealed that her club had agreed to sponsor RUTAMU.

She appealed to all stakeholders to give RUTAMU all the support it deserves to soar to greater heights.
