Graduation for MCM students 17 November 2023
A total of 19 students graduated the MCM programme in 2023. The graduation ceremony was initially set for October 20th but at the last minute it was delayed to November 17th at the request of the Rwanda government. These changes unfortunately meant that only 4 students were able to meet the new date. Prof. Steve Capewell our Vice Chairman did attend on 20th October and he is shown here meeting Liban Abdulkadir Kassim from Somalia in Kigali where they both attended the MWC23 conference in Kigali held on the same date as the original graduation. Thanks to GSMA a UKTA member for inviting us.
The second photo shows the students who were able to attend on 17th November. They very much enjoyed the event and will keep in touch with each other and the rest of the 2023 cohort.
Those attending shown in the photograph from the left are:
Emmanuel Albino – South Sudan

Chikondi Koloko – Malawi
Edgar F. Ssegujja – Uganda(more…)
