This summer, president was in Bukoba to attend the 100 anniversary of the Lutheran Church in the area. As part of those festivities, Josiah Kibira University College was dedicated.
In his speech, Kikwete noted that it was about time for Bukoba to have a university since Bukoba people are known to be "Nshomile" (Booksmart) and yet had no university in the area. The comment was all in good fun, the crowd reciprocated with a weak cheer and laughter.
