To The Hague From Nabinene

By Judge Daniel David Ntanda Nsereko
Regular price $108.00

This book is an autobiography in which Judge Nsereko narrates the story of his journey from Nabinene, his home village in rural Uganda, to The Hague, the legal capital of the world. It also gives an overview of his scholarly activities and professional experience. It is a fascinating story, replete with anecdotes, including those of life under successive despotic regimes since Uganda’s independence. It is testimony to the value of good education and hard work, to the power of resilience and to the inestimable grace of God. It is also proof to the truth that it is not how you start but how you end that ultimately matters.
