  1. Once
    again a light in our land of Uganda is sadly extinguished…I met him
    briefly in Gulu in March last year. As a son of the Royal House of
    Patiko, the clan has again lost a jewel. This is the time for the young
    generation to realize that soon all the elders won’t be around any
    longer. Therefore, young men and women of Uganda wise up and begin to
    take responsibility of managing the country. The future is now. May
    the Lord keep and strengthen the immediate family as well as the Patiko
    and Amuru Clans during this time of mourning as we lay our kinsman to
    eternal rest. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
