George Nyeko, Former Bank Of Uganda Secretary Dies

Mr George William Nyeko, the former Bank Of Uganda Secretary has died according to an announcement from close family members.

Nyeko retired from his duties at BoU in March 2015 after working for the bank for 32 years. He worked in many different departments where he rose through the ranks as time went on.

Liposarcoma is a rare type of cancer that develops in an individual’s fatty tissue. Apparently, this type of tumor can grow anywhere in the body but the common places include the abdomen, thigh and behind the knee.

“I stand here to give testimony that I am what I am today partly because of Mr. Nyeko,” she said

Ms Kanyemibwa got appointed designate for 11 months before Mr. Nyeko retired. She told great stories about how he mentored her at Central Bank.

“I worked under him for six years as a director Board Affairs. He supervised and mentored me and threw me in the deep end, saying ‘you will sail,” she said.

Nyeko is survived by his wife Jolly Nyeko and four children; Ken Olara, Sam Otim, Lois Aber Kwikiriza and Eunice Asiimwe Nyote.
