It is with great sorrow that we express the passing on of our Treasurer, Mr. Godfrey Nuwagaba. Godfrey has been a distinguished gentleman who has nurtured several talents through the Sport of Athletics; contributing to their career development and education with Standard High School, Zzana.
Godfrey was not ill. He was very well in good health, jolly and going on with his daily life and businesses. This occasion therefore comes to most of us as a great shock!
