He paid for his elementary and middle school education by performing menial jobs at construction sites and at school.

He passed his O-Level examinations with flying colors, scoring 14 points in 8 subjects (the best possible score is 8). His paternal uncle, sponsored his A-Level education at St. Mary’s Boarding Secondary School, Kitende, a good residential mixed high school, in Kajjansi, off of the Kampala-Entebbe Road.
