I am a Ugandan who had some of the best years of my life at Prince of Wales/Nairobi
When I arrived in Junior House, my first shock was the military discipline. I remember some of
my prefects then: John Steed (if I remember his name correctly) always reminded me of a
regimental sergeant major; McDougall was always fair as was Tom Muchura. It was always a joy,

As a House Games Prefect, I had a keen interest in all sports activities. I also played
through all the "colts" until I reached School teams in football, rugby and athletics (I held

After leaving School, I went to Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. After graduation, I
briefly worked for Grindlays Bank in Kampala. In 1979 I left Uganda for further banking
studies in London where I have lived since. I have previously worked for a couple of US
investment banks, and currently working in the City of London with a top Rating Agency.
I am married and have 3 children.
