 CONFERRED A DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY OF MAKERERE UNIVERSITY

The 27th May, 2022 was a joyous and enjoyable day when Rev. Elmereck Kigembe, the current General Secretary of the NWD, was confered a doctoral degree by the Makerere University

The graduation congregation was convened at the freedom Square of Makerere University. PhD students were confered by the Chancellor of Makerere University.

Dr. Kigembe had a five years academic journey from February 2017 when he was provisionally admitted by the graduate school. He defended his research plan in 2019 and on 10th May, 2022 he defended his dissertation entitled “The Challenges of Strategic Plan Implementation in the North Western Diocese of the ELCT”

In his study, Dr Kigembe investigated the challenges of strategic plan implementation in NWD. The study identified the improper resource allocation, limited knowledge of implementation, un-conducive working culture, lack of clear targets and changes in government policies as negative factors in strategic plan implementation. For the church to effectively implement its strategic plan the study recommended strategic mobilization, monitoring and proper allocation of resources, integration of training in strategic plan, enhancement of working conditions, integration of clear targets in action plans and regular review of strategic plan objectives and instruments in order to accomodate changes as per government policies. This study was supervised by Prof Patrick Mangeni and Dr Veneranda Mbabazi.

The North Western Diocese secured a scholarship to the benefit of Dr Kigembe through the United Evangelical Mission (UEM) which is based in Germany

Dr Kigembe was born in Kafunjo village, Bukongo congregation, Ibuga parish of Kamachumu in 1972, studied at Rutabo Sec School, Musoma High School, Tumaini University- Makumira, Silliman University (Philippines) and University of Bethel (Germany). His doctoral destination was at Makerere University.

We wish Dr Kigembe the best and pray that he may be able to maximize his academic ability in sustaining God’s mission in the NWD. May God bless the NWD and ELCT at large
