Ugandan billionaire Sudhir Ruparelia has offered to fund journalist Ivan Okuda’s further education in the United Kingdom.
The funding will enable Okuda to pursue a Masters in Law (Corporate & Commercial Law) from the University of London.
“Profoundly humbled and immensely gratified for a generous contribution by Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia this afternoon for funding that will enable me pursue a Master of Laws (Corporate & Commercial Law) from the University of London. Grateful for and moved by his generosity,” Okuda tweeted on Wednesday.
Okuda, a former Daily Monitor journalist, is currently a Legal Associate of Anguria & Co. Advocates.
The talented young journalist and lawyer, has just returned from South Africa where he was a 2019 KAS Media Africa Scholar at the University of the Witwatersrand.
If he completes his masters in laws, Okuda will be one of the most read Ugandan journalist\lawyer of his age opening his life to bright future.
His friends have since congratulated him upon achieving the milestone;
Heeeyy welcome to London! Thanks Sudhir.
