Former Uganda Prime Minister Apolo Nsibambi Friday delivered a keynote address at the inaugural Bernard Onyango Academic Excellence Awards.

The events in memory of the long serving Makerere University registrar and former old boy of St Peter's College Tororo, started with the public lecture at Makerere University Friday afternoon and concluded with the Awards Dinner at Silver Springs Hotel in Bugolobi.

Isaac Munu who matched Bernard Onyango at St Peter's College by getting 8 out of 8 at O Level last year, was the first winner of the BO Excellence Award and got a cash prize and full A Level scholarship.  Simon Wandera, who got triple A at A Level, also got a cash prize.

Bernard Onyango was one of Uganda’s most exemplary public administrators.  

He began his career as a teacher serving at King’s College Budo (1955), St. Peter’s College, Tororo (1956-58), and as Deputy Headmaster until 1963.  

From 1963 to 1965, Onyango was Deputy Registrar of Makerere University College, before moving to the University of East Africa (comprising the three colleges of Dar es Salaam, Nairobi and Makerere) where he served as Academic Registrar from 1965 to 1969,  Onyango rejoined the institution as Academic Registrar—a position he held for twenty-one years.  

He then applied his considerable expertise to the private sector by becoming the founding Academic Registrar of Uganda Martyrs University, Nkozi, in which capacity he served from 1991 to 2001.
