Cavendish is a private university in Uganda that was established in 2008.

The university announced the appointment in a post via Twitter on Monday.

“Welcome aboard @GEJonathan as you take over as the Chancellor of CUU. We look forward to this new era and achieving great things under your leadership. Success begins at Cavendish!” it wrote.

The appointment makes Jonathan the third chancellor of the university since its establishment.

The late Kenneth Kaunda, former president of the Republic of Zambia, was the pioneer chancellor, and Benjamin Mkapa, the late president of the United Republic of Tanzania, the second chancellor.

Jonathan is expected to be installed on August 26, 2021, in time to preside over the university’s 10th graduation ceremony which will take place on the same date.

Before Jonathan’s career in politics, he had served as a science inspector of education.
