About Jjumba Lubowa Aligaweesa

Jumba Lubowa Aligaweesa was born in 1978 in Rakai district. His father Senyonga Mugerwa Paulo was a Catholic but he died before Jumba could recognize him. His mother Theresa Namakula Nakamanya was a woman of little means and she had two children to look after upon the death of her husband. Jumba was taken away to a relative to raise him. His new father would be a Muslim, a Hajj Sulait Mugerwa. Jumba would be raised a Muslim.

Jumba didn’t go far with his formal schooling and spent his days looking after new father’s cattle; actually, his friends say he didn’t go beyond Primary Three.
