About Me

Soon after my birth in Hoima,Uganda, my parents moved to a place called Kakira, better known as Madhvani Nagar. After a year my parents moved to a little town called Kamuli, about 40 miles from Jinja, where I finished my Primary school. At the age of 11, I went to Jinja to study at the High School. I stayed in a hostel called 'Lohana Boarding'. Having spent 3 years in Jinja, my father decided to send the family to India. I spent two years in a city called Junagadh. At the time, my younger brother and I felt that Junagadh would not provide us the kind of future we were seeking (No disrespect to Junagadh). So we ran away to Bombay, where I graduated in Botany and Zoology.

I had a wonderful time in Bombay. In 1975 I came to UK. I went to Leeds University to study for a PhD in Genetics.
