“My political roots are traced in Makerere University Business School”, said Hon. Beatrice Anywar. Commonly known as “ Mama Mabira”, the Member of Parliament for Kitgum district, Hon. Anywar made the statement during the MUBS Alumni dinner held at MUBS Campus on Friday, January 20, 2017. In her testimony Anywar noted that her root in politics started from the national College of Business studies, ( NCBS) Nakawa, which was taken over by MUBS in 1997.
Anywar pursued a higher diploma in Marketing from the institution before joining Makerere University for a Bachelors and Masters degree in Public Administration. While at NCBS, she served as lady Affairs Minister in the School’s Guild. She encouraged all the alumni to trace their roots and work towards developing the Institution that made them what they are today. “I am one of those willing to lobby for MUBS’ Independence and I will strongly support the bill once it is tabled on the floor of Parliament. I am also one of those who are ready and willing to pull the vulnerable people to pursue their education from MUBS”, she said.
Hon. Anywar appreciated the Principal and School Management for bringing the alumni together. She challenged the alumni to always give back to the institution as a means to help it grow. “We need to help each other to grow and we shall make a permanent impact- For god and my country”, she said.
