Trinity College Nabbingo (Tricona) has marked 75 years since it was established, receiving a cash donation of Shs400 million from President Yoweri Museveni to equip its brand new computer laboratory built at the school’s campus, about 14 km west of Kampala.


Priests and other dignitaries including former education minister (under Presidents Yusuf Lule and Museveni) Namirembe Bitamazire and Chief Justice Bart Katureebe, attended the function.

The school’s headmistress of 15 years, Cotilda Nakate Kikomeko, said she was glad to host the event which brought together hundreds of old students at the Girls-Only school, located some kilometers off the Kampala-Masaka road.

In his speech, President Museveni said he had camped at the very ground where celebrations took place before he took power in 1986.

“There were students up there and we did not want to disturb them, so we camped here,” said Museveni, speaking from a podium amid tight security.

Later mass was said at the open ground, led by Kampala Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, who is board chairman at Nabbingo, and under whose docket the school falls as head of the Catholic faith which owns the college.

Archbishop Lwanga told those present that Nabbingo was established by the White Missionary Fathers sent by the Pope.

Sources said Nabbingo, one of the best schools in the country, was started to provide educated wives for African leaders mentored by the white colonialists at the time.

Other schools founded by Catholic missionaries include Mount St. Mary’s Namagunga (Girls), St Mary’s College Kisubi and Namilyango College (Boys), the oldest of them all, launched in 1902.
