Cynthia Ayeza, the JUMP editor for Education category expressed optimism of the Academy saying, “the conversational-style tutorials which move away from the typical lecture-hall style, will fuse theory and practice in one, which is an opportunity for wholesome learning.

I encourage young people to take advantage of this opportunity because it will give them the opportunity to access beneficial information at the tip of their fingers. It also means that those who are financially unable to afford formal education at institutions of higher learning will be able to learn at a minimal initial cost (buying a simcard and MiFi), and thereafter at no cost to them if they are subscribed with Vodafone.

Furthermore, anyonew that is interested in learning beyond their own field of study will be able to expand their knowledge base by having access to a variety of subject-specific videos, by simply logging onto www.jump.ug”.

The host at the press launch and Vice Chancellor of Victoria University, Mr. Joseph Nyakana, welcomed and commended the Academy as an evolution of education relevant for the times. Makerere University; Uganda Christian University; Makerere Business School and Word of Life University were all represented.

Demystifying the detoothing demon in MUBS girls

Campus Bee - Wed, 04/26/2017 - 14:13

Once upon a time ,a legend is told, by an old resident of Nakawa, mzee says his grandfather told him the story. Before Mubs bought the land where it sits, the land was occupied by a beautiful woman, who the entire Nakawa admired, .Namakula, (for that was the maiden’s name ) was loved by all yet she never fell for anyone.

Till, a rich coastal Tanzanian came by,and swept the poor girl off her feet, however the poor girl was ill advised by her karoo mates, she blinded the Tz fellow and robbed him of his coastal riches. She detoothed him. The poor man returned to Tz, and bewitched Namukula, she ran mad, and died so poor.

Her spirit haunts Mubs to date. The detoothing syndrome that haunts Mubs girls is spiritual, it’s a curse. Most Mubs girls back home are overwhelmed by poverty, that the rats in their homes complain of the poverty, but upon return to the University they live the Kampala dream. Partying and living large.

Mubs girls speak with accents, they sound like lost children of the Queen of England. They speak “nosy English” so you need to have a perfect mastery of the English dialect or consider getting a translator.

Mubs girls are extravagant, you have to be a son to Sudhir, or you must own a money minting machine, they have breakfast at KFC, lunch at Serena and supper at a clothe store … Kanye West was inspired by a Mubs alumnus before he composed the gold digger classic.

Nakawa queens will detooth you that you will sell your clan assets. Now after, winning over a Mubs girl, behold, they have innate village syndrome and will give you excuse after excuse to avoid having her edible rat caned.

We need to have a national prayer mountain to break the demons that haunt Mubs. “I’d rather remain single and miserable than date a Mubs girl. These girls will chew all your peanuts, you think u have money, date a Mubs chic,” a one Innocent revealed.

MUBS Guild President Elect to Hold Victory Party Before Swearing In

Campus Bee - Wed, 04/26/2017 - 11:47

Well, it looks like the new leadership soon to be led by Guild President Elect Emmanuel Awori is more interested in partying than doing the actual job.

Our well placed source has leaked the information that MUBS UYD camp is planning to throw a victory party for the newly elected guild president and they can’t wait until the swearing in ceremony. Posters and banners have been already designed to promote this unbelievably rushed party as swearing in ceremony dates remain unknown.

More information regarding this surprise indicate that the victory party is scheduled to happen this Friday 28th at club Amnesia with major mixes from Dj Nimrod who also doubles as a sex advisor at Galaxy FM.

According to the posters, MUBS students will party from as early as 8pm till late as the name Awori is expected to be an entrance password.

One thing we can’t understand for sure is why the rush? Probably the newly elected leader wants to secure his position before his former competitor Walter Kakuru seeks court’s appeal over suspected vote rigging. But the big question remains, Which victory if he hasn’t been fully declared guild President?

We shall keep you posted.

#WCW! Debbie Kaitesi, Mubs’ cutie

Campus Bee - Wed, 04/26/2017 - 11:34

For a diamond to stand out of the billions of precious metals, it needs 400 carats. For a flower to win beauty votes, it has to collect all the rainbow colors and like wise, for many things to stand out, they need a mega effort to topple their competition but not Debby Kaitesi! She is currently pursuing her Bachelors of Business Administration at Makerere University Business School (MUBS) and could easily make the most beautiful girl in your town. She doesn’t need to try. She just is that beautiful.

Kaitesi is blessed with a skin that glows like gold in the afternoon sunshine. Her eyes are like pearls afloat milk. Her stares can melt iron hearts, they burn with passion, love and strength.

In the many ways of making it in life, waking up to Debby’s face should be added, She is great and doesn’t hide that for besides her cheeks glowing like chicken soup, they taste like cadbury.

Fortunately or unfortunately to many, this belle is contented with her current status. Meaning she has walls around her heart and only determined gentlemen can jump in. We don’t have a clue on what could force her break the walls, Is it the latest Range Rover too? Flat? Honeymoon in the Bahamas? Well, that’s for you and her, we have no idea..

She loves traveling and spends casual hours of the weekend swimming and may be you can pick up lines like, “Can you go swimming with me..” or simply a blunt “can I take you for a bit of shopping trip somewhere in Paris”

She has hopes of resuming work as soon as she’s done with school. She had put it on hold to focus on her books as an exemplary member of society and yes, she’s our Woman Crush today because, why not?

"Raise up your hand if your ex is like a piece of (________) and you wish you had never met them"..Dean was tipped about it but he just kept his cool.
