MUBS Students Raise Funds to Save Paralyzed Colleague

Makerere University Business School (MUBS) students led by their Guild together Rotaract Club of Nakawa-MUBS joined forces this morning to gather resources to save one of their own, more about who was attacked last year and left paralyzed.

The students are holding a Car wash to raise funds for the treatment of Raymond Bamwesigye, who was left immobile following an attack by unknown assailants.

The second year student is said to have been beaten badly by the attackers and has been bedridden for months. Medics have recommended more specialized treatment for the 24 year old, in India.

Fellow students this Saturday are gathering at Panamera Bar in Naguru for a number of activities through which sufficient funds are hoped to be collected for the noble cause.

“There will be a car wash starting a 9am. There will also be shoe polishing and goat roasting besides the car wash,” said the organizers.

“Each car will be charged Shs. 50,000. Ugandan Comedian; Patrick Salvador will be the chief shoe shiner of the day.”

Raymond is a son to a retired Sergeant in the UPDF, Mr Paddy Nabimanya. He was attacked by unknown thugs as he returned from his internship.

He was rescued by good Samaritans and rushed to the Spine Unit at Mulago Hospital where doctors found that the attack had damaged his spine leading to paralysis of the lower body.


Despite undergoing a major surgery, Raymond has only been able to regain use of his upper body.

He is currently unable to write, feed, and ease himself. He urinates using a catheter. He has as a result been out of school for over a year and stays at home in Kasokoso, Wakiso District.

The specialists from India assessed him and have reassured the family that a second surgery will enable his lower body to recover and the paralysis will be gone.

Well wishers have been called to donate to this cause by sending mobile money to Raymond’s father Paddy  Nabimanya on 0772656680/0702738440.

Money can also be deposited to his account in Centenary Bank, account No. 3020040681.
