Fresh on our Buzz desk are the reports that the Queen of Africa, Quinn Abenakyo wasn’t eligible to Graduate this year for two reasons; one is not appearing on the list of graduands and the other is having had two uncleared retakes.
According to our undercover who approached a certain staffer at the Makerere University Business School (MUBS) where the Queen of Africa was pursuing her bachelors in Business Computing, the Miss World Africa was just favored since her name neither appeared on the graduation list nor the graduation book.
Indeed Abenakyo’s name never appeared anywhere on the list of graduands and according to the new regulations governing graduations, if you don’t appear on any of these two, you are not eligible to access the Freedom Square. According to the source, the Vice Chancellor of Makerere University had banned the addendum lists, which are those put in last in the book of graduands having names of all students after proof reading.
When it came to picking up the graduation material, the new Ugandan Tourism Goodwill Ambassador almost fainted after finding out that she was not in neither the book or the list. However, she then made a few calls and those in charge of serving out these materials were ordered to give her the card and the graduation book, thanks to the name she made towards the end of 2018.
Meanwhile, during the graduation ceremony, Abenakyo’s name was the first to be read among her fellow course-mates despite not appearing in the final list of graduands in the book.
Other close sources reveal that the Miss Uganda 2018 was just favored to graduate since she also had two retakes in balance. However, these sources claim that prior to the graduation day, Abenakyo first had a special meeting with the Vice Chancellor of MUK, Prof Nawangwe.
Having uncleared retakes means that Abenakyo is still a student of the Nakawa based institute because she has to re-sit the two papers that she failed. Though it is claimed that she graduated with a Pass Degree of 2.0 CGPA, these sources continue to reveal that the queen doesn’t know her actual CGPA.
Meanwhile, it remains unclear if Abenakyo will go back to school to complete her studies after the ‘mock’ graduation this year. Stay posted for more buzz.
