Early life (Background)
Henry was born and raised in Mbarara. He went to Mandela Junior School for Kindergarten, Rugazi Progressive P.S for Primary, Ntare School for Secondary and graduated from Makerere University with a Bachelors Degree in Architecture.
Henry’s Rugby journey
His rugby journey started in S.1 at Ntare School where he was introduced to the game by Ian Tayebwa. Ian was a good friend to Henry that made him give the game a go – sadly, he didn’t get to continue playing for long.
After a couple of touch rugby games, the potential in him was noticed and he was introduced to the Senior School team that same year by Zeno Othieno. From that point on, he has never looked back since.
Fast forward, he joined Impis Rugby Club as a freshman at Makerere University and has gone from just a passionate rookie to a leader and key man in the Impis rugby outfit that’s rebuilding a club that holds so much tradition in Uganda rugby history.
Life outside rugby
“Outside the game, I am into Architecture, Photography, Graphic Design, Soccer and engaging in University Sports activities.”
Favorite rugby moment
“Ending Rhinos’ unbeaten run in the 1st leg of the 2014/15 season to earn Impis RFC it’s maiden win for the season. Couldn’t be happier having put all the 13 points on board for my side & walking away with a MOTM recognition.”
Worst rugby moment
“Suffering a concussion during the 1st game week of the 2019/20 season only to regain consciousness in an ambulance without medics.”

Future rugby aspirations

Message to upcoming players
