On Monday 20th June KET received an updated and final list that has 1491 Graduads.The latter were advised to clear up with accounts office so as to get invitation cards,tags and car parking stickers.
How many people to accompany the graduate ?
As is the norm, universities often limit the number of people a graduad can come with. This is done to avoid huge number of people. For instance one may come along with the whole clan . Imagine if half of the graduads did this!
Speaking to one of Convocation Leaders who knows about Busitema University’s plans Honourable Kalibo Abuneli ( aka Thinker Abner ), a maximum of three people including the graduad are allowed. And in the invitation card, where it says the company of You write your name ( the graduad) and one of their invitees holds that card at the entrance. The invitation card is got after payment of graduation fee at the Main campus from the Records office.
