Meet Ruganzu Bruno, Uganda’s Coolest Lecturer; Takes Selfies With Students
It is surprising that Uganda’s coolest Lecturer is from Kyambogo University. It is none other than Bruno Ruganzu, a lecturer of Industrial Art and Design. On 17th April 2012, in Doha, Bruno Ruganzu was announced winner of the TEDx competition TED Prize for City 2.0 at the TEDx Summit in Qatar earning him a cash prize of 10,000 USD. He is also the founder of ECO ART Uganda where he recycles trash and makes trash out of it, saving the environment but also adding beauty to the world.
Sometimes when the sun is scorching the earth, he takes his lectures outside, under the mango trees. After all, nature is inspiration for the artists. He doesn’t regret taking selfies with his students. He notes; “Blame me: I take selfies with my students. I am Ruganzu. I have taught at Kyambogo University since 2010 and there is nothing as students seeing you as a friend and mentor.”
