Uganda Central Bank Governor E. Tumusiime-Mutebile, Jan. 27, 1949 – Jan. 23, 2022. Disliked by those who were for a parasitic command economy, Emmanuel believed in Ugandan grit. That in a free market, they could engineer a dramatic economic recovery. He was RIGHT. RIP. /1/ pic.twitter.com/v30lfeI0Qh
