namasagali college; a shadow of itself

its home to some of the countries more famous sons and daughters like Juliana and Irene who are all singers, Roger Mugisha a radio personality and even politicians like the current speaker Rebecca Kadaga

image

like an old woman rejected for dead, the only good thing left about it is the driven from the gate. a symbol of the good work done by the white man. his name Father Grimes

image

but the wear and tear can still be noticed by the brown looking iron sheets that cover refugee to the white walls that once graced namasagali college at its great heights

image

but culture never dies and this can be seen by the graffiti that still dotes the walls. this was a music based school and this can dies. most halls host pictures or names of some of their more famous former students

image

but time rules every thing and even tractors have not been spared

image

the history accumulated over the years is littered around the school in form of waste

image

the buildings have roofs blown off by time and those that stand as class rooms have no sits neither window panes

image

while other schools cry over lack of halls to to host seminars namasagali yawn for a chance to host even a couple of students at a ago. that are tired of hosting spiders and wall crawlers

image

due to absence of a new coat of paint the students resorted to applying cheap graffiti of their names

image

the huge hall that doubles as a hall and a debating ground as well as the art room. this hard to tell especially with the high level of misuse

image

the tractor has not been spared

image

neither is the staff room

image

the swimming pool is decayed and in a state of dis repair

image

its hard to believe this where the school nutrition is maintained from. the school had tapped water but it has gone to waste and the walls are crumbling under the weight of regret

image

the kitchen is all beaten up with time and the feeding time table never switches form posho and beans

image

and the students today heading for supper

image

probably the prayer should be ‘God bless our School’ not our cooks because they surely need one

    1. i would be willing to do right that and i wonder where all these Alumni meetings i see in the country fundraiser for because just 3 months ago they held a drama show at the national theater but don’t know how the proceeds were spent

  1. Good heavens..! Why has this school been left to go to the dogs like this? I am really outraged at the gross neglect that this school has been left to. Where is the glory of Namasagali that blazed from the early 70’s to reach its apex till the 1990’s..?

    Namasagali, it shouldn’t have been you to go down to the dust so ingloriously. You who schooled some of the brightest elites of Uganda..!

    1. whats more painful is that the most notable members of society are OBs and OGs take for example the Speaker of parliament, s list of A-celebrities in Uganda and yet non has taken the initiative to redevelop the school one even wonders where do proceeds from those shows at the national theater go?
