The Makerere University freshman, Henry Ssuubi Kiyimba who last week made headlines after he was scorned for carrying a metallic suitcase to the institution has won himself a scholarship.
The picture, posted by a fellow student, showed Ssuubi carrying a metallic case as he made his way to the University Hall.
According to reports, Henry whose dream course is a Bachelor of science in engineering was admitted to the university on government scholarship to study a Bsc Education (Economics).
He had decided to pursue the economics degree, however, an engineering company (Joadah Consult, an Engineering company), has offered to sponsor Henry’s university education, doing the course of his dreams (Mechanical Engineering).
What started as a mocking tweet directed at Henry and meant to bring him down, has turned out to be a blessing in disguise for the student and clear testament that when the world looks down on you, God lifts you up!
Joadah Consult is running key projects such as the Expansion of Mulago National referral hospital.
