Many have hailed Bamwoze for his love and advice that he always rendered to the people of Busoga and development projects he initiated in the region and Uganda at large.

He has been remembered as an adviser to married couples, who has also bonded many broken marriages.

 


He has been described as a selfless, candid, ingenious, developmental and loving man of God who touched the lives of infants, children, young people and adults in and beyond Busoga.

Bamwoze succumbed to leukemia at Mulago Cancer Institute on Monday.

He was born in Nakimegere-Naminage on May 15, 1934 and later married and had six children.
