Hajji Mulangula, who could possibly be the oldest man to be primary school in Uganda, went back to school after 70 years to learn algebra.

The great grandfather, who is currently admitted at Bundibugyo Hospital in western Uganda, was studying at Bundibugy Muslim Primary School.

The primary pupils sat for Primary Leaving Examination [PLE] on Thursday and Friday and the successful ones will join secondary education next year in February.

One of the eye witnesses, Mr Ronald Tumusime was quote by the Daily Monitor that the old man was trying to cross the road.  “He was from school after the briefing exercise and as he tried to cross the road, the speeding motorcycle knocked him instantly.”

Mr Mulangula could not speak to us as he was still weak on his hospital bed on Thursday when the first set of exams was done.
