According to Alfred Kabuchu, the chairman KHOSA steering committee, the sports gala is a way of bringing a bigger number of old students together as they look forward to re-build the school’s glory.

In a move aimed at ensuring networking, re-living student days while catching up with old friends and acquaintances and getting together among others, Kigezi High School old students have organised a sports gala on Sunday April 28.
 
The event will take place at Kitante Primary School. The event’s Chief Guest is expected  to be Rt.Hon. Ruhakana Rugunda, the Kigezi High School Old students Association (KHOSA) patron. 
 
According to Alfred Kabuchu, the chairman KHOSA steering committee, the sports gala is a way of bringing a bigger number of old students together as they look forward to re-build the school’s glory.
 
“We encourage a bigger number of students and well-wishers to turn up for the event. Currently, we have about 2000 active members of KHOSA,” he stated.
 
There will be a number of sports activities such as football, aerobics, team building activities and tag of war among others.
 
KHOSA brings together old students of Kigezi High School and well-wishers. He said the school started in 1922, and will be celebrating 100 years in 1922.
 
“So as part of our activities to commemorate centenary celebration, we came together as old students and said we needed to do something about the school. One of them was collecting information, setting vision for the school; our vision is to rebuild glory of school to be among top 10 best schools in Uganda by 2022,” said Kabuchu.
 
According to him, over years, Kigezi High School has produced students in all walks of life and at one time was the premier secondary school for Western Uganda.
 
“So we want the glory to be rebuilt to those levels. The school has produced people in all walks of life that include the Prime Minister, Bank of Uganda Governor Emmanuel Tumusiime Mutebile, minister David Bahati, former premier Amama Mbabazi, FDC’s Kiiza Besigye among others,” said Kabuchu.
 
On achievements, he told New Vision that KHOSA has repaired a number of dormitories such as Warren House and several others.
 
There’s also a process of repairing Bwankosa House, Aggrey House, and all these efforts are to be championed by old students mainly those who stayed in these dormitories.
 
“For example repairs on Aggrey House are led by Finance State Minister David Bahati and Dr. Protazio Begumisa, a commissioner in Uganda Revenue Authority and others. When we say repair, we are changing them from dilapidated to putting new tiles, wardrobes, wiring and replacing glasses among others,” said Kabuchu.
 
Enock Mugume, the chairman KHOSA football league said sports gala will help to put old students in mood for forthcoming sports competition starting in August this year
 
“First of all we felt that if we mobilise over 100 old students for the sports gala, we shall be in better position to mobilise them for Augusts’ league. So it’s a sort of mobilization also helps us to keep together as a group/ team,” he stated.
