Pulse Birthdays: Debate Maestro Jordan Tumwesigye Celebrates his birthday today

Been keenly following the NBS Schools Debate championship? Then you already have noticed Jordan Tumwesigye on the panel of Judges.

A national debate champion and best orator while still at Mbarara High School in western Uganda, Tumwesigye proceeded to pursue a bachelor’s degree in law at Makerere University from where he graduated in January earlier this year.

Currently, he is stationed at Kagugube based Law Development Centre (LDC) where he is pursuing a post graduate diploma in legal practice to enable him practice his profession in courts of law.

A self professed MTN Pulser, Tumwesigye has on several occasions used his Twitter handle (@JTumwesigye) to tell his awesome experience with MTN Pulse and the entire network in general. We wish him a lovely birthday today!
