Having lost his mother during the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in December 2020, Maj Chris Magezi who was at the time pursuing his studies in the United Kingdom finally has something to smile about after concluding his Advanced Command and Staff Course at the Joint Services Command and Staff College (JSCSC).
Following completion of the course, Maj Magezi who is the Public Relations Officer in the office of the Senior Presidential Advisor for Special Operations summarised his emotions in a brief tweet on Wednesday morning.
"The period since 2020 has been exceedingly difficult for global citizens on account of an ongoing pandemic. I am therefore profoundly grateful to God upon the successful conclusion of the Advanced Command and Staff Course, and MA Defence Studies program at the UK’s marvel, JSCSC," Maj Magezi who is expected in the country soon said in the tweet.
The College trains the future commanders and staff officers of all three UK armed services and those from many countries around the world. According to information on its website, the College's mission is to "deliver first class professional military education, which develops our people and our allies’ defense forces by giving them the skills they need to address current and future security and defense challenges at home and abroad."
His conclusion of the grueling studies, therefore, means he will for the first time reunite with his family members since the death of his mother whose funeral he couldn't attend.
