During today’s Makerere University graduation ceremony, a graduand from the class of Industrial and Fine Art 2024 paid a heartfelt tribute to his fallen friend, Monday Elly. The emotional gesture aimed to ensure Elly’s presence resonated among the graduating class, turning a solemn occasion into a touching tribute.

Amidst the sea of caps and gowns, this graduand stood up and lifted a framed portrait of Monday Elly, who tragically passed away last year after completing his graduation photo-shoot. The unexpected loss left friends and family in mourning, casting a shadow over what should have been a joyous milestone.

In a remarkable act of remembrance, the graduand lifted the framed portrait, symbolically bringing Monday Elly into the midst of the graduating class. The gesture served as a powerful acknowledgment of the void left by Elly’s absence and a testament to the enduring bonds formed during their academic journey.

In a unique recognition of Monday Elly’s academic achievements, the late student was posthumously awarded a degree. This honor, approved by the dean of the college in which Elly was enrolled, serves as a meaningful acknowledgment of his dedication and contribution to the field of Industrial and Fine Art.

The posthumous degree not only commemorates Elly’s academic accomplishments but also celebrates the impact he made on the Makerere University community. Though his time in this world was tragically cut short, his legacy lives on in the hearts and minds of all those who had the privilege of knowing him.
