The Former Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Mr. Ephraim Kamuntu has lost his son, Henry Ruchwere Kamuntu, a renowned top banker, to the novel coronavirus.

Ruchwere Kamuntu, the Head of Power and Infrastructure at Stanbic Bank Uganda, has succumbed to COVID-19.

Ruchwere was instrumental in Stanbic Bank’s initiative to finance investors in Uganda’s oil and gas sector amidst growing opposition against fossil fuels including oil and gas in favour of renewable energy.

This followed the signing of the East African Crude Oil Pipe Line (EACOP) project between the governments of the Republic of Uganda and the United Republic of Tanzania and other key sectoral stakeholders like Total E&P.
