Makerere University, one of Africa’s most prominent universities has prohibited graduates from bringing phones, cameras, or video cameras.
Makerere University in Uganda will begin a five-day graduation ceremony on Monday at its Freedom Square. Different graduation dates have been allotted to faculties throughout the week.
Cameras were not permitted in the graduation square for unknown reasons, while other goods forbidden from the ceremony included alcohol, cigarettes, tinned meals, and bottled drinks.
“A detailed list of prohibited items has been inserted in the graduation invitation package that is presented to the graduands and invited guests,” stated Prof Patrick Mangeni, head of the ceremonies committee.
There will be a total of 13,221 graduates, with each entitled to invite only two guests.
The ceremony is likely to be attended by First Lady Janet Museveni, who is also the Minister of Basic Education.
