Athletics body mourns the passing on of Mr. Godfrey Nuwagaba


It is with great sorrow that we express the passing on of our Treasurer, Mr. Godfrey Nuwagaba. Godfrey has been a distinguished gentleman who has nurtured several talents through the Sport of Athletics; contributing to their career development and education with Standard High School, Zzana.

Godfrey was not ill. He was very well in good health, jolly and going on with his daily life and businesses. This occasion therefore comes to most of us as a great shock!

Godfrey was an avid sportsman himself from the days at Makerere University. He has been the current treasurer at the Athletics Federation and Olympic Committee. He has been chef de mission on several Youth and Senior Teams with the Athletics Federation and Olympic Committee – Uganda. He was part of the Finance Commission and treasurer at the just concluded IAAF World Cross Country Championships, Kampala. Apart from being a Treasurer, he was a National Technical Officials Instructor.  

Godfrey’s contribution to the sport of Athletics, the education sector at Standard High, the Sebei Community where he has nurtured most talents will not be forgotten. The Uganda Athletics Federation, Uganda Olympic Committee, Ministry of Education and Sports – Government, agencies and departments, Global Sports Communication, friends in Uganda and abroad will all greatly miss him.

May the Good Lord strengthen the family in this very trying moment. Rest in Peace friend, colleague and father. Till we meet again.
