An Overwhelming Story Of fresher Mocked For Resuming University With Metal Box

Ssuubi Henry Kiyimba was mocked for carrying a metallic box to campus. His first appearance in Makere University to start his course in Bachelor of Science in Education was a memorable one.

Though Ssuubi did not take notice that his little luggage had made him a subject of ridicule on the internet, he went about his routine in school until the administration called him for a word of advice.

Well wishers overwhelmingly support university fresher mocked for reporting with metal box Source: Twitter

The person who posted the photo might have done so to ridicule him, little did he know that his actions were a blessing in disguise for Ssuubi who has now received overwhelming support.

Led by BBC journalist, Allan Kasujja, internet users who lashed the Twitter user who shared the photo, joined forces to ensure the student’s story changed for the better. In a matter of days, the first year student received an assortment of goods from well wishers after revealing the metal box he was carrying was actually empty.


“I carried the bags from the gate up to the university hall after boarding a taxi from home, the case was empty and the small bag contained my mattress, my clothes were in my backpack,” he said. Hurt and disappointment that some people use social media to bully others, the third born in a family of eight has forgiven the Twitter user and thanked him for opening doors for him. “I had just known about it, I am not on social media so had no way to access it, it hurt me at first, it did not look so good at first but it has turned out to be a blessing in disguise,” said the student.

On Thursday, August 8, the institution’s administration through the Vice Chancellor Barnabas Nawangwe, invited the student for a sit down with him giving him words of inspiration and motivation.

“We applaud Ssuubi’s resilience and determination. He truly worked so hard to join Makerere and he earned it. We wish him the best during his stay at the Hill, as We Build for the Future,” said the university.

He was then appointed as the new chief fresher of the university by the institution’s guild president upon which he was invited to the Students General Assembly (GRC parliament). Read more:

Coming from a humble background only depending on their mother to provide for them, things were tough for Ssuubi and his siblings while growing up and joining the university is a huge achievement. “It is a remarkable experience because from our family, nobody has reached to this level, I’m the first one and that is why I feel so privileged to be here,” he said.
