SAD! Muni University Vice-Chancellor Passes On

Dranzoa Christine died at Mulago National Referral Hospital. The cause of death has not yet been revealed.

The Vice-Chancellor for Muni University and a fervent advocate of girl child education, Prof Christine Dranzoa has died.

According to an announcement on the university’s Twitter handle, Prof Dranzoa died at 3:30 am Tuesday morning. 

“We have just received the sad news of the untimely death of our dear Vice-Chancellor, Prof Christine Dranzoa who passed on at 3:30 am this morning. Official communication will be made later in the day. May her soul rest in eternal peace,” the tweet read.

She died at Mulago National Referral Hospital. The cause of death has not yet been revealed. The late professor, who rose from a humble background in a tiny village of Adua, in Moyo district, has been spearheading the University since its inception in 2014.

At the time of her death, Prof Dranzoa, 55, was also serving as the Executive Committee chairperson of the Inter-University Council of East Africa (IUCEA).

Tributes have been flowing on various social media platforms about the professor who championed the operationalization of the first Public University in West Nile. 

Dr. George Bhoka, the Obongi County Member of Parliament said: “We have lost an educationist icon at a time when she has started laying a firm foundation for public university education at Muni University in West Nile. The University and nation will surely miss her leadership services. Her legacy will live for perpetuity.”

 Moyo District Secretary for Production and Natural Resources, Mr. Sam Asusi, said: “I have just received a call from Dr. Iddi Franklin Amuli that our sister Prof Christine Dranzoa has gone to be with the Lord. Let us pray for her and the family and our financial and material support is needed so that we can give her a befitting send-off. It is an unfortunate moment for us in the Madi sub-region because our pride and glory have gone too soon.”
