Rev. David Sserunjogi is not your run-of-the-mill cleric. He is successful entrepreneur with six big schools, a hostel and a hospital. But he is also an accomplished man of the cloth with over 20 years of service in ministry under his belt.
Yet his business success has little, if anything, to do with his divine ministry. As a child, he was driven into business by a dire need to survive long before his passion for God drove him to priesthood.
After his mother died while he was in S2, Sserunjogi was thrown out of the one room rental he shared with her which also doubled as a bar where she sold crude Waragi to sustain them. He had to find his way in life doing odd jobs from working as house boy to slashing compounds just to sustain himself in school.
Today, he is the proprietor of five primary schools, under Trinity Children’s Centres, in different parts of the country.
He owns Centenary High School in Nyendo, Masaka; Camp David Beach Hotel in Kalangala; Double Cure Medical Centre, a hospital in Mpigi and he is the man behind Red Cliff Hostel that houses students of Nsamizi Vocational Institute in Mpigi.
He employs 187 people in an empire valued over sh5b.
