After a drought of first class degrees at the Makerere University Law School, one man has managed to break the spell. For over 10 years, no single student at Makerere University had ever graduated with a First Class Degree in Law. Well, that is now history, one man, Peterson Mwesiga just set a new record.
Although the Makerere Law School was established in 1968, it has only registered 10 First Class Degrees since then. Mwesiga’s degree becomes the 11th. This has left many wondering if Mwesiga could be the most intelligent Uganda of this modern era.
During his time as an Engineering Student, he graduated with a First Class Degree in Electrical Engineering and is currently a Phd Student in the field of Engineering. It is a rare feat for an Engineer to conquer the law school while pursuing his Phd.
The exceptional Mwesiga is an old student of Ntare School and has surely raised the bar high in the country. The few people who have been lucky to attend his lectures at Makerere note that he is the only lecturer who would come into the class with just his head. “He is a moving Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Nikola Tesla. He is just amazing, no wonder at CEDAT, he was the one lecturing the hardest electrical engineering course unit; “electrical materials.”
Mwesiga is married to Phionah Naturindah, another very intelligent lady. He’s already been admitted to the Bar Course at the Law Development Centre (2017-2018).
