Eulogy for Dr. Frederick Nathaniel Mukungu (24th September 1952-1st January 2021)
In the words of the Vice Chancellor Prof. Christine Dranzoa, “In late Dr. Mugungu, we are all reminded of humility, all the core values of the University packed into that man, Our friend and colleague …we are but flowers”.
Those words undoubtedly summarize the recollections of the entire University community of the person of late Dr.Frederick Nathaniel Mukungu, the first ever Muni University Librarian. He succumbed to Covid 19 on 1st January 2021 at Mulago hospital. Born on 24th September 1952, Dr. Mukungu joined Muni University in 2015 and handed over office on 3rd November 2020 after the end of the five-year contract. He opted not to apply for a contract renewal. He wished to re-engage into a new career of Church Services that he always desired to do.
The University community remembers him for the great achievements he registered while at the University and for being an honest and committed staff who played a fatherly role to all. He lived a down to earth life with no airs.
