A Word

Before he returned to Makerere University in 1989, architects were trained abroad. However, if you meet an architect today, chances are high they received their training under the tutelage of Prof Barnabas Nawangwe at Makerere.

“At the time there were only 20 architects in the country, and the construction sector was in chaos.We have since trained 300 architects in this time, which is my contribution to the sector,” says Nawangwe.

And he is quite modest about this. Nawangwe, who is now a full professor and has written so much about architecture, is plugging away at his job as deputy vice chancellor for Finance and Administration at Makerere University.

“When I was first appointed to this job, a lot of friends and family thought [the job] was hard, but that is why I want it, so they can see what I am capable of doing beyond [what I did in Technology]. A few are apprehensive – but I am confident I will be alright,”
