Four time presidential candidate Rt Col Dr Kizza Besigye and his wife Winnie Byanyima are on cloud-9 after their son graduating at one of the most prestigious universities in the world.
Anselm Besigye graduated at Harvard University in USA on Thursday.
The good news was disclosed by Dr Besigye who said Anselm graduated from the institution’s faculty of Arts with a major in Anthropology.
“We’re delighted about his hard work that afforded him to graduate with distinction. His thesis was among the 2021 Thomas Temple Hoopes Prize Winners for “excellent undergraduate work and excellence in the art of teaching,” Besigye said via his official Facebook page on Friday.
” It recognizes, both, the student and his/her supervising professor. It means his thesis will remain available in Harvard library and he also gets $5,000- cash prize.”
The former Forum for Democratic Change FDC president also lauded Anselm for his hard work since it relieved them (parents) from most of the cost of his high school and university education because he was able to win scholarships that saw him go through the best education institutions.
“I am grateful to his mum, Winnie, who took most of the responsibility of raising Anselm, as I was mainly entrapped in the ongoing liberation struggle of our country.
“I am also grateful to the many family members, relatives and friends, who played an important part in the journey of Anselm’s growth and education.Our family is grateful to the teachers, professors and all school and university staff of all the institutions he attended in Uganda, Ethiopia and the USA.”
