With a heart full of enthusiasm and a sense of belonging that filled the air, students gathered to celebrate diversity, art, and new beginnings. The Cultural Gala was a colorful tapestry of traditions from around the world as students showcased their unique cultural heritage through music, dance, and fashion. The vibrant performances transported us from one corner of the globe to another allowing us to experience the beauty and richness of our global community.

From the rhythmic beats of traditional African drumming to the elegant grace of classical traditional outfits, the Cultural Gala was a testament to the multicultural essence of King Ceasor University. The event not only entertained but also educated, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation of our diverse student body.

King Ceasor University School of Law had the honor of participating in the Great Lakes Regional Training Program in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights, held in Kigali, Rwanda from October 8th to October 14th, 2023.  The School of Law was represented by SHAMIM AKAMPURIRA and ALEX HALERA who engaged in a friendly competition with law students from Burundi, DR Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda. Together, they examined a hypothetical case that highlighted multiple violations of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights that have persisted in the Great Lakes Region since the 1990s. This endeavor was accompanied by BONNYLOVE INGABIRE, a lecturer from the Faculty of Law.

The week-long event provided a distinctive platform for research, training, and debate skills under the theme, “Armed Conflicts and Biodiversity Conservation in the Great Lakes Region: Assessment and Prospects.” It also contributed to the expansion of regional networks, with over 300 participants from previous editions actively sharing knowledge and information related to International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights.

We wish to express our profound appreciation to IPEACE for affording us this invaluable opportunity and to the King Ceasor University Administration for their unwavering support whenever needed.

King Ceasor University School of Law joined the rest of the world to commemorate the 21st World Day against the Death Penalty. The school came alive with the spirit of advocacy, education, and commemoration. The evening’s centerpiece was undoubtedly Mr. Sylvester Kiberu’s presentation. As a Law student at King Ceasor University, Mr. Kiberu’s passion for justice and human rights was evident in his thought-provoking paper. With eloquence and conviction, he explored the complex issues surrounding the death penalty, making a compelling case against its continued use.

Mr. Kiberu highlighted the potential for wrongful convictions and the irreversible nature of the death penalty. Adding a unique and poignant perspective to the event were former death row inmates who had been exonerated. Their stories served as a stark reminder of the human cost of wrongful convictions and the irreversibility of the death penalty. Their presence reinforced the importance of actively advocating for change and ensuring that justice is not only served but also seen to be served.

The commemorative chief guest Dr. Livingstone Sewanyana a renowned human rights advocate and scholar provided expert insights on the global landscape of human rights and the death penalty. His valuable perspectives illuminated the interconnectedness of human rights and the fight against capital punishment emphasizing the need for continued international efforts to abolish the practice.
