Kiggala Jessy Sean (4th Position)

The fourth year student of Bachelor of Petroleum Geoscience and Production at Uganda’s Makerere University came in 4th in the recently concluded nuclear essay writing competition.


Kiggala, 23, was born and raised in Kampala in Uganda to Mr Kimbugwe Davis and Ms Namukasa Florence as a middle child. 

He started his early schooling at City Parents Primary School in Kampala before proceeding for his O’ Level at Makerere College School where he received 5 awards in leadership and academics.

Kiggala attended the prestigious King’s College Budo for his A Level where he was also awarded for best performance in mathematics in 2018. He is due to graduate with a degree in Petroleum Geoscience and Production at Makerere University. 


A movie junkie, Kiggala attributes his love for nuclear energy to Uganda’s President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who in March launched Uganda’s nuclear road map “where bits and pieces about the energy alternative were re-echoed.”

“This was when I learnt of nuclear as an untapped resource in Uganda with a huge potential to improve energy access, power industrialisation and cut carbon footprint.


An avid reader, Kiggala also loves his play station, geopolitics, world order and history. He calls himself a hero having saved his young brother from drowning in a pool in 2011. 


“I felt like a real Hero. I still do today,” he says.
