As part of the initiative to discourage drunk driving and promote responsible drinking among the youth, Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL) on Friday went to Makerere University and conducted a mentorship session on drunk driving.

The mentorship which was under the Red Card initiative brought together university students, student leaders and members of the teaching body who engaged in the responsible drinking conversation and later made the commitment to Join the Pact to never drink and drive.

Speaking during the session, Uganda Breweries Corporate Relations Manager David Onyango advised the youth to spearhead the campaign against drunk driving because they constitute the largest percentage of the country’s population.

The crowd also received mentorship from the campaign ambassadors Vinka, Innocent Nahabwe and Calvin Kalule.

At the same event, Vinka put up a massive performance of her songs including her latest Red Card song urging the students who were in a groovy mood to be responsible when drinking.

Mengo Senior School are winners of the inaugural Uganda schools Debate Championship (USDC), a national debate championship that was conducted at St. Mary’s College Kisubi.

Mengo defeated Seeta high school to take the honors of the highly billed championship organized under the theme, building competitive minds for Uganda’s development.

Over the five days, students discussed topics from among others, the appropriate curriculum that’s suited for Uganda’s development needs to what a just tax system that can enable the development of Uganda’s SME sector would look like.

Organized by Debate Society Uganda, the championship is the climax of the society’s annual schools program which involves debate training and competitions in different regions of the country, from which schools qualify for the national finals.

This year’s championship convened over 200 students from 30 schools in the Northern, Eastern, Western and Central regions of the country. Students took part in activities including debate, public speaking and different conference sessions.

On the eve of the championship’s final, students had an interface with members of parliament in a session graced by the deputy speaker of parliament Rt Hon. Jacob Oulanyah.

Closing the tournament, NRM national treasurer Rose Namayanja emphasized the importance of debate in grooming leaders, noting that she is a product of debate herself. “Platforms like this (USDC) expose you to a diversity of opinion and perspective from across the country, which leave you a more knowledgeable person. I have been a debater since high school, and throughout my days at university. It is because of debate that I picked interest in national leadership.”

It was a fun-filled affair at the Nkozi bash as both freshers and continuing students of Uganda Martyrs University converged at the upscale Bbosa Hostel and partied the night away over the weekend.

The event, dubbed the Nkozi Fresh Bite Bossa Bash, an annual staple of the hostel, was this time around graced by DJs Ssesse and Alza, who had the campusers dancing all-night to hot music mixes, much to their delight.

The majestic hostel’s courtyard was centered by a huge white dome, inside of which was an air-conditioned ambiance, complete with a bar, dancefloor and seating area where some of the revellers were situated throughout the night.

Bbosa Bash is an annual event which usually attracts hundreds of campusers, some of whom come from other universities across the country, all in the name of joining their counterparts for the party.

Here are some photos from the event.
