President Museveni noted that Mzee Rutanyohoka was one of those who helped him to sensitize people in the area about permanent settlement instead being Nomads.

”When we started the campaign to sensitize people on settling permanently, he helped us mobilise people since he was involved in setting up churches and schools,” he said.

Mr. Museveni hailed his Godfather for his attitude towards development and his patience, urging people in the area to emulate his example.

He cautioned people in the area against greed saying that when you do God’s work, you are rewarded, adding that putting ones country and people first before himself was the reason he joined the bush war to liberate his country.
