Many years ago when Bayimba Academy was just an idea being put into motion one of the many people that came together to make it a reality was Anita Desire Kusasira.
As many have written already, she was an angel, always giving her best, always sharing her talents and abilities, and the best part if it all was her warm-hearted smile.
She was a great lecturer at Makerere University, and several other institutes of learning and wherever she taught she inspired and was highly revered by all her students. To both Bayimba Foundation and Bayimba Academy, Anita was not just a member or a teacher, she was an extremely incredible music educator, mentor, and an all-round friend whatever the weather.
One might as well comfortably argue that without Anita’s input and efforts Bayimba Academy might not have gotten where it is today, and yes this would be true because even in her last days she was finalizing the writing of a Hip-Pop education curriculum custom made for Uganda’s music industry and this was to be taught in Bayimba Academy’s programs and shared with several other institutions in the music education sector. Anita was shaping the Ugandan music education system piece by piece for the better and she has left was with a very big gap that no one can ever fill completely.
You have left us too soon friend, we shall carry on the good work you started but we shall always remember you and miss you very much. Until we meet again, may your soul Rest In Peace Anita. We’ll always love you.
