“This is a disarmingly fresh and straightforward book. The author writes from the heart. His comments are frank and spontaneous, whether describing his birth, his courtship and undergraduate days, or views about the government. He tells the reader his strong and weak points and we enjoy them with him. This makes the book interesting to read.”
MartynDarkard, The New Vision
Through Intricate Corridors to Power is a candid portrait of a national leader who has struggled all his life to serve the public. He decided, from very early in life, while still in junior school at St. Savio, to work hard, be simple, be the best and survive. He has served his country in many ways, first as a medical doctor and secondly as a politician. He has been a legislator, government minister, and Vice President of the Republic of Uganda.
This book shows the reader the progress of a determined person who, through enormous energies and efforts, made the unlikely journey from Kakiri, to top universities in the world and eventually to the position of vice president. Prof. Bukenya demonstrates that there are important lessons to learn from pleasant as well as unpleasant experiences. The reader sees his career has been shaped by his determination to improve his life, and that of his fellow citizens, through honest hard work. Through the book, we get to understand his commitment to poverty alleviation, largely inspired by the life of deprivation he lived during childhood.
