New Vision (Kampala). By John Eremu: ' The Aga Khan Foundation has sunk US$300,000 (sh522m) into the establishment of a university of nursing in Uganda. The East African regional director for Aga Khan Universities, Dr. Grace Miller, told The New Vision in an interview that the money was spent on renovation and equipping the university premises on Makerere Road in Old Kampala. Speaking at the university's open day on Wednesday, the state minister for trade, Dr. Abel Rwendeire, hailed the Aga Khan development network for providing an opportunity for nurses to upgrade. Rwendeire, who played a crucial role in accrediting the university in Uganda, was mesmerised by the facilities. 'The equipment here is fantastic. Wherever I have gone, I have not found facilities as good as these, not even in New Zealand where I did my Masters. So you are going to be our yardstick,' he said.
