Dr. Richard Wekesa - College Principal/CEO


"Hello and welcome to Bukura Agricultural College. When you come to the College,

you discover that you have arrived at a special place. The College is set on a 587 acres

of land with a pleasant surrounding that is conducive for academic learning.

The College is committed to its vision of being the Training Institution of Choice in Practical Agricultural Sciences.



Today is a celebration of all that is good about our students, lecturers and Bukura Agricultural College. It is wonderful to observe among you the positive energy that comes on Graduation Day.

I am excited about the future for each of our students graduating today. You have the potential to be all you want to be.

Seeing all of you here today is a testament to the achievements of our graduates and to the love and support they have received over the years from the staff, parents and the whole College community.

I am enormously proud of the classes of 2018 and 2019. Each one of our students has worked very hard to realize their full potential. They have preserved and worked towards achieving their goals in a very determined way.

Each of you have grown in a way that the College should be so proud and are now ready to transition to a new exciting chapter in your lives. We endeavor to provide a holistic education for our student community.

This year graduating classes have grasped these opportunities and the staff have watched in awe as they developed both life skills and resilience skills across the broad curricula in our school.

I take this opportunity to thank all you parents for your tremendous support and willingness to support your child’s education in our College. We value and acknowledge the support of the parent community in the provision of an inclusive education here.

Thanks to the teaching staff and the support staff.

Like any production behind the scenes there is a huge commitment going into each lesson prepared and an eagerness to be the very best staff they can be. It is a privilege for me to work with this staff who have such a skill-set and expertise in agricultural education. Their dedication to educating the students is enormous.

To all of our students here the future is where you will spend most of your lives. The real power of creating and being responsible for your own future is unlimited. You will hopefully experience enormous joy in creating this journey for yourself and enjoy the benefits of it too. Of course there will be challenges ahead however when you are determined to succeed you will make the right choices for you! I encourage you to put all your energy
