About the author

Emmanuel Kajubu
Emmanuel Kajubu is proud to have been the first Ugandan journalist to write in depth pieces about the Tooro Kingdom institution. His knowledge of the inner workings of the Tooro Kingdom is what made him privy to the splits in the royal family. These splits almost challenged Tooro Omukama Oyo Nyimba Iguru's reign.

Culture and the environment are just two areas of many of interest to Kajubu. As long as he has held a pen, Kajubu has also written about public policy, health and crime.

Kajubu is keen on impacting his society not just as a writer but also a trainer and mentor. As a result, he works as a trainer with Farm Radio International (FRI) and chairperson of the Tooro Median Practitioners Association (TOMPA).

Emmanuel Kajubu is the Kabarole URN bureau chief. Kamwenge, Kyenjojo, Bundibugyo and Ntoroko districts fall under his docket. Kajubu has been a URN staff member since 2008.
