Why Golf:

Although Katamba has the ability to design Apps for other sporting disciplines, he has specially fronted the one of golf given his love of this drive, swing, approach, chip and putt game.

In fact, he is a former caddie at Entebbe Golf Club and later played the sport until his current handicap, 12.

“I am a former caddie who also graduated and played golf until today as I play off handicap 12. I also played football but got an early injury (collar bone fracture) that put me off the pedal” he recalls.

Katamba cites the lack of resources including finances as the major challenge in his line of duty.

The other challenge he encompasses is the poor attitude from the people as regards Information Technology (I.T), among other bottle-necks.
