He said the university, with over 800 students, has survived the challenges posed by Covid-19.
Kiggundu said that the university is putting a lot of focus on Information and Communication Technologies and vocational education to equip students with both intellectual and hands-on skills that not only make them more employable but job creators.
In his speech delivered by the Deputy Mufti Sheikh Abdallah Ibrahim Semmambo, the Mufti of Uganda, Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubaje called upon all muslims and well-wishers to join the Muslim leadership to develop university.
Mubaje said it is local support, both financial and spiritual, that has seen the university grow and embrace students from all walks of life including the underprivileged who are awarded scholarships to be able to attain an education.
