Among the over 8,000 students who graduated from Kyambogo university on Wednesday, Allan Kajik, the husband to State Minister for Privatisation and Investment Evelyn Anite.
Uganda Radio Network [URN] reported that Kajik was among the 151 masters degree graduands at 16th Graduation Ceremony.
To the awe of onlookers, when Kajik’s name was read, an overexcited Anite jumped out of her seat in the executive tent occupied by President Museveni.
She rushed to his side and grabbed him in a tight embrace to congratulate him.
All smiles, she told URN that the event marked the end of alarm clock ringing in her ears every day.
“I congratulate my darling husband upon adding papers in the family. Of course by the time we were getting married we had both attained out first degrees. We took a decision together to go back to school,” she told URN.
This has been a fruitful year for the family. Not long ago, Anite graduated from Tufts University and then did another course in Harvard.
Now her husband who doubles as the administration manager of the Uganda Electricity Generation Company Limited (UEGCL) graduated with a Masters of Organisation and Public Sector Management at Kyambogo.
Kajik told URN that he works in a very challenging sector, the energy sector, and are responsible for construction of dams in this country and generating energy for this country.
“It is so nice to be a husband to a minister [laughs]it is exciting but it also comes with its own challenges,” he told URN.
He added: “We have had a number of busy schedules, sometimes it requires me to be with her [Anite]. I managed to manoeuvre through and graduate. I hope I am going to make a better husband.”
