    Brother Anthony Kyemwa as Headmaster was more than a father!

I will never forget the parental care of Brother Anthony Kyemwa former Headmaster of St. Mary’s College Kisubi (SMC).  Kyemwa saw the school through very difficult time in the 70’s. The school had no fence but trust the Brother, he was in control.  There was insecurity in Amin’s time, but the Brother made it to see us go for preps where teachers at times were scared.  He endured through the strikes mostly due to food.  I thank the Brother for the parental care.

 For the students, reading was pleasure.  For us we could even compete in bathroom!  Those students who would go for Express (reading from midnight to 3.00am) would wake up their friends for Oriental (reading from 3.00am to breakfast time or thereabout).  Cooking water with bed springs for heavy coffee was normal.  We were good at summarizing for exams.

Brother got respect from students; they could see him from a distance and would get moving very fast to wherever they were required.  The Brother gave us freedom to move around Kisubi hill but this never compromised academic standards/excellence.

Dear all,

The communication regarding a "thank you project for Brother Kyemwa"
was made in good faith.  Many times we are cut off from these great
teachers of ours and are ready to get involved when there is serious
danger and at times too late.  At Brother Kyemwa's age, he is expected
to get ailments associated with old age, so the appeal for medical
support is in that direction.

I don't at any moment want to run any account where funds raised can
be put, in fact I believe the Brother has an active account where such
funds can be sent if it is made public knowledge for the Old Boys.  My
idea is simple, if there is such a fund under the cover of the thank
you or whatever it may be, I think will be some good help to the

So, in a nutshell, as most of us belong to some organizations, we do
make long term and short term programmes; in the same line, let us do
good planning for our retired teachers so that they enjoy decent

Hope I am understood.

I thank you.
