The founder of Greatness University, Dr Patrick Rusoke Businge, has
been selected to write the official biography of King Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru
According to the Kingdom’s Deputy Information Minister, Vincent
Mugume, Businge is expected to unveil the final copy of the biography at this
year’s coronation ceremony in September.
Mugume explains that biography will help the people of Tooro,
especially the young generation, to understand more about the King and the
Kingdom’s history culture and norms.
When contacted, Dr Businge, who stays in London, says that King’s
Biography comes after his successful research and publication of the book
titled, “The Great Kingdom of Tooro: Discover its Friendly People, Amazing
Culture and Hidden Treasures”.
Businge hopes that the book will create a legacy and be a
celebration of King Oyo’s greatness and achievements. He explains that biography
will feature the King’s journey as the world’s youngest monarch, role model to
the youth in Africa, and as an emerging global leader.
“The intention is to write our royal history for when we lose our
history, we lose our culture, when we lose our culture, we lose ourselves as a
people,” Businge explains.
He also says that the Biography will capture peoples’ views about
the King since he knows that many people have met him, heard him speak, attended
his cultural events, attended school with him and even taught him.
“I urged people from all over the world to send me their inspiring
stories written from their hearts on how the young King has inspired them since
he was three years old,” Businge says.
Dr Businge holds 7 university degrees including a PhD from Exeter
University in England, UK.
He is the Founder of Greatness University in London which started
in 2015. The institution is dedicated to researching, documenting and
monetizing greatness in individuals, businesses and organizations.
Businge has lived and worked in various countries including Kenya,
Tanzania, Rwanda, Burkina Faso, Algeria, Franca and the UK.
He has so far written and published over 12 books and co-authored
with over 200 people.
