Clement was our “Head Boy” in our dorm at Bugema Adventist College in Uganda. I can still see him in my memory carrying a clipboard as he inspected our rooms at 5:30 am. Our first class was at 6 am, before breakfast. He was tall, dark and handsome. We had a lot of respect for him. He was a no-nonsense leader, although you could catch him joking and laughing, if you followed him closely. I haven’t seen seen him since those high school days, but he will be missed. May he rest in peace.
