Born to refugee parents fleeing from the political turmoil in Rwanda in the 1970s, Shaka was raised in times of political turmoil in Uganda. He lost his father in the war and grew up on the war’s frontlines. His mother served in the Ugandan army and, partially because his parents were uneducated and did not appreciate the value of education, he dropped out of school when he was seven.Shaka’s early childhood experiences created a drive in him to give back to others. Orphaned at nine-years-old, Shaka was educated on government bursaries and he always felt that he owed society for the investment it made in him. In June 2000 Shaka graduated from Makerere University. He opted to help the needy.
