My Story

Born in 1960 and raised in Uganda. For Primary, I attended Shimoni Demonstration and Nakasero Primary school. I went to Nairobi for my Secondary and completed school in the United States. When I returned from the United States, I set up a construction company in Soroti district instead of joining the family businesses. Five years later, I became the Managing Director of Alam Group which position I still hold.
