This is the one of the oldest school in Tabora. During 1960S it was dominated by students of Asian and Arab- Nyamwezi origin, but later in 1980S it was mult-racials.

Uyui has produced a number of talents ranged from Academics to sports, arts and models. The hand that groomed all these students was the late Mr K.R. Patel who apart of being a headmaster for more than 25 years he was a friend of all.

The life at uyui was  joyous and farbulous to the extent that every boys and girls wanted to study at Uyui which is at the heart of Tabora city.

Just Opposite the school there was a formous football ground called Uwanja wa Vita. (the bettle field of football). During 1970 there was teams such as Sungura that managed to beat Dar es salaam Youngs Africa in 1973 by 1-0. There were teams such as the Vita that was under the western brigade, and during that period it was under the command of Mayor General Sillus Mayunga or Mti Mkavu. So students at Uyui developed interests in sports particularly football where a number of supers emerged like Shaban Katwila who later Joined Young Africa, Mgomo Mangesho, Patric Walter, Dickson Kanumba etc the list is long.Adjacent there were basketballs pitches that breeds William Cruiser- Willy Gamba, Peter Semuhunge, Daudi Thabit and others.

When it comes to education Uyui produced the best product. Some of the students at Uyui are senior software engineers in the USA, others are engineers, PHD holders and a number of postgradutes.

Uyui was seen as school of elites and classified students whose parents were thought to be rich, to the contrary it was a school full of peasants’ children.

Those who have studied at Uyui, they were very fortune to have been groomed by a caring hand of  the Late Mr Patel, who left with them a wealth of  real knowlegde, friendship, compassionate and brotherhood and a blessing. Most of them a respectable personalities in the society not because of the knowlegde or wealth or social economic position, but of their big hearts and minds that reminds their root. UYUI.

Uyui Secondary School Assembly hall

Assembly Ground with long Patronage Speech from Mwalim Patel

This is the assembly ground of Uyui Secondary School. During those days it was at the middle of the Biology lab (behind the lab) and Form II- III Sciences and Arts.(front). For sure when it was an Assembly every body knew that it will last not less an hour because the Head Master (the late) Mr K. Patel (RIP) would issue a very long speech as a deliberate parental move to guide students for the things he thought was not going on well for the week in question.
In the series of the deliveries normaly the third Master Mr Lukago would start, then the first Master Mr Lukala before the Headmaster deliver his speech. though at that time we were getting tired of listerning of Mr Patel Speeches, today every one agrees that he was a real father and Guardian who wanted each and every student to have successful life.

When I saw this piture from Nisheet Jethwa my memoy went bak almost 30 years where the now see as stand alone mango trees was full of students scrambling to buy cassava from the late Mzee Amiri. The cassava was so sweet and delicious since it was spiced with bizzari and pilipili.

During half-time almost the whole school would dash to the mango trees where it was Mzee Amir station. The good thing was we used to share the cassava regardless of who purhased. Those was the days and if trees could have mouth to speak, the Mango trees in the picture could testfy my story.

Young, energetic with innocent pose for the picture. This Mrisho. The picture was taken in-front of the Student Center (where students used to go for leisure and studying) and at the back is the Gongoni Primary School. One thing that came vividly is the change in life. Those days Uyui boys and girls were very much committed with studies. If you have a picture please post to

MEET HARUNA RAMADHANI EX-UYUI (1977-1980) A STORY TELLERHave you ever heard of a person been a story teller? Haruna Ramadhani (Right) x-Uyui (1977-1980) is one of those good teller when comes to stories. For those who knows Haruna, he is a man who knows how to talk creatively. A story told by Haruna will be more attractive as compared to same story when narratted by another person.Haruna now a Vertenary Clinicians is a wide reader and a good listener who is in Shinyanga Region has been a friend of all at all times. During the cold war times, everybody was almost asking Haruna on the position of each block with regards to their strength. Haruna’s class was Science 2 and he was with Muhsin Iddi Godi Godi; Abdallah Salehe (-1980 will remember this familar face from Uhuru Street Chemchem Tabora.

Greetings to all Uyui Secondary School family and my thanks/gratitude to the initiators/maintainers of this blog. I just this week came across this blog. In fact, my wife drew my attention to the website she had bumped into while searching for something else. I must admit that going through the blog triggered/sparked and range of emotions: from sadness for the passing of important people in my life to nostalgia and fond memories of Uyui and Tabora.
I would first and foremost wish to extend my condolences to Mr. Patel’s and Mr. Kisanji’s families (albeit belatedly). I was very saddened to hear (to read on the blog) of their passing. I knew both Mr. Khandubhai Patel and Mr. Edwin Kisanji.
My name is Abdulghany Mohamed. I now live in Ottawa, Canada (since 1986). I last visited Tabora/Tanzania in 1988. I am an alumnus of Uyui Secondary School, Tabora (class of 1968-1971). The late Mr. Patel was my Headmaster (he taught me a course in Additional Mathematics) and Mr. Kisanji was a senior student ahead of us and did indeed return to teach at the school.
Although we had two streams I’ll try here to remember the names of some of my classmates. They included: Aden Ismail Shirwa, Alfred Mcharo, Ashok Kumar, Ashwin, Azmeena Jamal, Bilal and his brother, Enoch Kaseya, Ramadhan Hamis, Hansa Patel (sister of Jayant Patel), Harshad and his brother Bharat, Hasan Mushi, Ismail Aden Rage (current Tabora MP), Jonathan Matebele, Katwembala, Leonard Lameck, Mahesh Chauhan, Martin Zuberi, Merton Makinda, Mohamed Ali, Neela Joshi (Asmita Joshi’s younger sister), Noorjehan (Rhemtullah?), Pius Mwaisekela, Pushpa, Sambayao Nyasuru, Suresh Parmar, Sydney Dias.
That’s all I can recall for now . Sorry I have forgotten the last names of some students. Please help me to recall other names I have missed.
Senior students included among others: Cosmas Hinju, Onesmo Hinju, David Kisanji, Edwin Kisanji, and Thompson. The cohorts following us included, Baya Ramadhani, Lucas Nkondola.
I our teachers included Mrs Ashton (Form I English teacher from UK), Mrs Nazareth (Chemistry teacher from Tabora’s famous Nazareth family), Mr. Matthews (English teacher; had a photo studio not far from Uyui), Bro Andrew (Physics teacher from The Netherlands– I can still remember his updates on the Apollo Space mission – especially the tense moments of Apollo 13 and how he used the real world events to relate them with his physics lectures), Mrs Phillip (Biology teacher whose husband was the Tabora Regional Medical Officer at Kitete Hospital; I believe he later joined the Muhimbili Medical Centre/Faculty of Medicine in Dar es salaam) and last but not least Mr. Lukala.
I would be remiss to forget Mr. Maganga (senior school caretaker/custodian) who with Mr. Patel were always the first to arrive in the morning and the last to leave in the evening.
It would be an understatement to say that I fondly remember my days at Uyui. In fact, Uyui under Mr. Patel prepared me intellectually and socially. Academically, Uyui laid a solid foundation for not only my A-levels (1972-1973; Pugu Secondary formerly St. Francis College, Dar es salaam) but also for my subsequent undergraduate and graduate studies. Socially, my life was tremendously enriched through extra-curricular activities including my involvement in the singing choir, debating club, drama club, volunteer activities, etc.
I would very grateful if someone could kindly update me on how Uyui has honoured the legacy of Mr. Patel & Mr. Kisanji.
Sorry for the long post and all the best to everyone.

    It is good to see everyone getting on this blog. It brings the childhood memories back.
    Davinder – good to hear from you- I think we met in Nairobi as well. Somehow I didnot get your posting via e-mail. Vinay did tell me about you when I talked to him last week. I studied Engineering in Bombay, India (1968 to 1976) and then came to US for Masters. I worked as an engineer till 1994 and started a business venture that has been good and bad at times.
    Shobhna – where are you? I met your mom, Rambhamasi and Manoj in UK quite a few years ago. How are you and your family doing? I am in touch with Navnit – he is about 5 hours drive from me. Last I met Dilip was in Tabora about 1976.
    Batuk Chandarana – I remember you as well. Your late brother Vinod was in my class.
    Rashmi – how is your sister Chandrika doing? Good to see you all have settled well.
    If anyone of you is in US, feel free to come and visit me and my family. My wife, Shilpa, is with me in the business. My son, Ripal, will finish Dentistry this year and Daughter, Sapna, is a Doctor doing internship.
    Eventhough this is Uyui site, I would like to see all Taborians join in.
    I do not see info on any Khoja freinds – they seem lost. Anwar, Zulfikar, Nasim, Anil, Salim etc.
    Manoj Davda, Pradip Morjaria, Ashvin/Kishor Davda, Rohit, Suresh Pattni, Jayant, Attaulla, Innaytulla, Ashrafali, Majithia family, -where are you guys.
    Shobha Pattni is in Houston, Texas
    Shobha, Bindu Patel (Patel Stores) are also in Houston, Texas.
    We should all put our contact info in the reply so it is there at the time of need.

    Ashok Patel I remember you and your family. My father Mr Haridasbhai was your dad’s friend. How is your family? how is Shila and Rekha. Give my regards to them and specially your mum.
    And Naina I have not spoken with you for a while but I was surprised that you can still remember swahili. mimi na sahaw kabisa.Ha Ha …..

      Mary Jaffer is in Edmonton, AB Canada . I could send you her contact info.
      I remember your family very well. I left Tabora in 1969 after doing my form 4 at Kazima

  3. Davinder Singh Ghatora Says:

    Firstly, I would like to thank Vinay for bringing this to my attention. I am also an ex-student of HR Primary and then Uyui. Vinay and I were class mates and we have met couple of times recently after having made contact through one of our other class mates, Vijay and Kumud.

    I must emphasise and stress the succes of this school, particularly under the leadership of Khandubhai Patel. I still remember this great man’s name and also remember when his first child was born, his wife, I think her name was Urmilaben was also a teacher in that school. I left Tabora in 1966 and went to Nairobi from where my family came to UK in 1972 and I have been here since. With the foundation laid by this school I progressed into a senior management position in a corporate and now am a Finance Director in a very succesful and award wining Pharmaceutical Organisation. This I beleive is all due to Uyui, well done Khandubhai.
    I would certainly like to be party to any reunions exchange of views, etc., etc., May God bless all the Taborians and of course the rest of the world.

  5. Vinay Patel Says:


    Greetings for 2010 to all Taborians where ever you are. This is Vinay Patel from Leicester in UK. First of all big thank you to Ashok and Shila (US) for drawing my attention to this site. Like them I also studied at HR Primary and Uyui Secondary. In my final year I was at Kazima. I left Tabora in 1971. I use to leave in Isevya. My parents (now passed away) had a shop which was just after the railway quarters on the left as you leave the town.

    Here are few names of Taborian who are in Leicester (if you remember them) – Vasant, Umesh and Kumud (bothers and sister). Ashok Big and his brothers Dilip, Kanu & Jayanti. Dilip R H Patel.

    And here are some of the Taborian I keep in touch with – Sharad (Agu) Pattni (Ilford London), Kishor Popat (Pinner London) Mahendra Chauhan (Coventry), Kapoor Chavda (London) and Arun Vithlani (Preston).

    Eshna – I did study under you Dad. The last time I saw him was when he came to Leicester. I took him round to meet other Taborians.

    Rashmi & Nayna – I do remember you both, you sister Chandrika was in the same class with me at Kazima.

    I would like to get in touch with fellow Taborians.

    Just a suggestion – how about having a photo gallery where we can post our pictures.

      Hello, Ashok,
      I am sure you’ll remember me as we have been thru H.R. Primary school together for 8 yrs and then went to Kazima for 4 more years. Your sister Rekha and Kumud were my very good friends at that time. I do get your news from Ramilaben Rameshbhai whenever I meet her in Houston. Try to keep in touch!!

      Hi Eshna, I was a teacher at Uyuyi School for 1yr or so.. when your dad was the headmaster. Your mum, Savitaben would remember me as my family (Pattni) and your family were very close and we used to live not very far from your house. In fact I have seen you when you were born..

      • Sudhaunshu Joshi Says:

        Hi Shobhaben, I was a student of your’s (and Prabodhbhai’s) during that year at Uyui. I just got in touch with Vimal. Hope you both are doing well. My regards to Prabodhbhai.

        Hello shobha Shukla, it looks like you and I used to be friends in Kazima secondary school. I was friends with Anila, Chadrika, Aruna, Varsha. Your last name was Pattni . Most people called me Sumi then. You may remember my brothers Indra and Jaychandra. Please keep in touch if you are the same person.

      Hi Ms Eshna Patel,
      My name is Abdulghany Mohamed. I was the late Mr Patel’s student at Uyui (1968-71). I was saddened to hear of his passing.
      I have some old photos with Mr Patel; I figured you might be interested to see them and perhaps share with others. Kindly let me know as to how I can send them to you.
      With kind regards,
      Dr. Abdulghany Mohamed
