Yoweri Kaguta Museveni

Born in 1944, during World War II, in Ntungamo in Ankole, Uganda Protectorate, to parents Mzee Amos Kaguta (1916– 2013), a cattle herder, and Ma Esteri Kokundeka Nganzi (1918–2001), a housewife. The world war was the source of his own personal name ‘Museveni’: one born at the time of the military service of the Seventh Regiment of the King’s African Rifles. He went to school to Kyamate Elementary, Mbarara High and Ntare Schools which, being among very few prestigious mission or else privately-sponsored character- building institutions, must have formed his early base of character formation and resilience built a strong foundation for the intellectual and ‘scouting’ feats of his later part of life.

Joseph Sinde WARIOBA

Joseph Sinde Warioba was born on September 3, 1940 in Bunda in the Ikizu village of Musoma district in Mara, Tanzania, going to primary school at Nyamuswa and then to secondary school at Bwiru in Mwanza. He enrolled at University College Dar es Salaam (UCD) of the-then University of East Africa in 1963 and graduated with a Bachelor of Laws in 1966. Enrolling at the College in the third cohort of a three-year programme of study was quite an experience for him and a few of his Tanzanian compatriots. It was a time of a delicate transition from a deep past of colonialism into a formative future of national independence and dispensation. Warioba’s university-student life was one of the most illustrious experiences of any promising young leader-in-formation of his time.
