He continued writing that, ”I am dedicating this recognition to the young people of Uganda, especially the ghetto youth. May this be a reminder and encouragement that you are not what your detractors say you are. You are what you choose to be!

I have been reflecting on my life and the many things I have gone through – from selling radio cassettes on the streets of Kampala, to collecting grasshoppers for survival; to working as a dobbi, etc. Now, making it to such a list! I can only return all the glory and praise to the Almighty and pay tribute to all those who have been part of this journey.

This can only strengthen our resolve to fight on, struggle on, soldier on – until freedom, human rights and equal opportunity return to our country, and indeed our continent”.

What we can say, Congs Mr Kyagulanyi for such a very huge recognition and may you continue shining.
