Home to the “Kivites” their house is named after Apollo Kivebulaya (1864-1933) who was an outstanding missionary and evangelist of the 19th century. After being baptised in 1895, he later became a catechist to the Anglican missionaries.
In 1896, he was sent to Boga the current day Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, as a missionary, when the chief there requested for a Christian teacher.His patience through all his trials and his testimony enabled him to win over the people of Boga, including the chief who converted to Christianity. Kivebulaya expanded his ministry to include literacy training.
In 1900 he was ordained a deacon, a priest in 1903 and named a Canon in 1922, in recognition of his work, enabling him to be a core leader in what became a separate diocese in 1972 , now part of the Church of Christ – Province of the Anglican Church in the Congo. Kivebulaya died on May 30, 1933. Kivebulaya house (better known as “Kiv ” today) was formerly known as “Canna Lily” and its theme colour is White.
The motto of this house is “Perfection is our goal.”
A heart for a Kivite A heart for every friend Internal vigilance Greater height to reach No time to waste And greater heights to reach Toiling upwards Day and night Discovering enchanted life A lady from Kivebulaya Nobly plans To work to comfort And to command Still achieving Still pursuing Learning to labour And learning to wait
