THE battle for the East African students’ prize entered its final phase in Arusha, Tanzania on Wednesday with Uganda emerging triumphant.

Evelyne Nambafu of Nabisunsa Girls’ School carried the Ugandan flag high at the 10th EAC Summit at Ngurdoto Mountain Lodge as she received a certificate and $1,500 from Rwandan President Paul Kagame, the serving EAC chairperson.

The ceremony was witnessed by presidents Yoweri Museveni, Mwai Kibaki of Kenya, Pierre Nkurunziza of Burundi and the host, Jakaya Kikwete.

In her essay, Nambafu outlined the prospects of the common market, explaining how it could help the 120 million East Africans fight poverty.

Others winners included Daniel Andondile of Masukila Shule ya Secondary in Tanzania who emerged second and received $1,200 and a certificate and Jean Benecyu Eudes of Petit Seminare Saint Aloys in Rwanda, who got $1,000, as well as a certificate.

Monyonko of Kenya High School came fourth and Burundi’s Miburo Elion of Lycee Mukoni was fifth. They got $750 and $500 respectively, as well as certificates.

The EAC principal education officer, Aloysius Chebet, said: “The competition has been conceived as part of the EAC outreach programme.

There is need to involve the students in the activities of the community, as well as foster an East African identity.”
