A younger reader’s edition of SOWING THE MUSTARD SEED, the number-one bestselling autobiography of President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni Kaguta.

Yoweri Museveni started life herding cattle with his Father and Uncle, in their family’s kraal in Enkondo, Ntungamo. His Parents, Amos Kaguta and Esteri Kokundeka, sold cows to ensure he got a good education. But from such a humble beginning he would go on to become the ninth and longest serving President of Uganda, ruling the country for over four decades. How did he do it?

Rewritten for young readers, in the gripping, fast-paced style of master storyteller and children’s author, Oscar Ranzo, this biography recounts an intriguing, and completely moving story of how, through hard work and determination, the poor herdsboy from Enkodo, Ntungamo built an extraordinary political career.

Filled with ups and downs, triumphs and failures, this is an extremely inspiring account. It will take you from Museveni’s early years – education, Pan African Activism, marriage, family life – to the guerilla war that helped him ascend to the presidency.

A book to read, debate, and discuss with your peers as well as the adults in your life, you’ll be inspired to dream big, and learn that in order to achieve your dreams, you will have to be persistent, resilient and stick to your goals, in spite of the many obstacles you may face.

Above all, it is a book to make you think: who are you, and what do you want to become?
