I am happy to inform you that I have been promoted to the rank of Professor of Makerere University. It has not been an easy journey, and this could have not been possible without your support as a father and mentor. My first funds as Associate Professor of Makerere University came from RUFORUM. I received for the last 10 years a lot of support from you and RUFORUM which made me achieve 80% of the requirement for my promotion. Thank you again for your support.

We at RUFORUM congratulate Professor Majaliwa Mwanjalolo and wish him the very best in his new role.
