Mwai Kibaki Library Mak

Makerere University is today launching a $40M (Sh3.6B) library to be named ‘HE Mwai Kibaki Presidential Library.’ The first-ever Presidential Library will also house the H.E Mwai Kibaki Endowed Chair in Economics and The East African Mwai Kibaki Centre for Leadership, Public Finance and Public Policy at an additional cost of $10M (Sh900M).

The Chancellor of Makerere University, Prof. George Mondo Kagonyera, said the University chose the former President of Kenya because of his outstanding performance as the first African to graduate with a 1st Class honours in 1955 at the University and his contribution at the University where he served as an Assistant lecturer in the department of Economics and Political Science.

“Through the H.E Mwai Kibaki Presidential Library, Makerere will tell and re-tell the story of H.E Mwai Kibaki, which is the story of African Excellence. This is the meaning of immortalizing H.E Mwai Kibaki on the Main Campus of his alma mater,” added the Chancellor.

President Kibaki, while making his acceptance speech, said Universities are hubs of intellectual capacity, while emphasizing on the importance of regional integration to deliver economic well being of East Africans.

“I believe that there are able East Africans with intellectual capital to come up with real-time tax deduction system. We now bear the responsibility of implementing the body of ideas bequeathed to us by history. These ideas are not new,” said Kibaki.

Over 500 distinguished guests led by the guest of honor President Yoweri Kaguta Museni attended the unveiling of the library and the programs.
