The Kampala International University (KIU) Community on 17th January 2020 held a Ph.D. Celebration for Dr. Patrick Bright Mutegeki. The event took place in the KIU Library Board Room.
The Guest of Honor were the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Finance, Dr. Janice Busingye; the Principal College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Dr. Peter Mbabazize, and the graduand's family graced the function with their presence.
During the celebration, Dr. Mutegeki presented an overview of his Doctoral Research Thesis titled "Household Livelihood Strategies: Analysis multi-local strategies dynamics and effects in Kabarole District Uganda", which was successfully defended at Clark University Massachusetts (USA) from which he graduated on 30th December 2019.
Dr. Mutegeki, who has spent about 14 years with KIU, thanked the community that included deans of schools, principals of colleges, and students for attending the celebration. He also dedicated his research to the community.
"When knowledge is got, it is meant to be shared so that the community can gain from it," he said.
Dr. Mbabazize also congratulated the graduand on his recent achievement and further urged him and the community at large to pursue Ph.D. degrees so as to make significant contributions.
"The Ph.D. we are celebrating is for the community," said Mbabazize, "because one does research and finds solutions to better help their community."
