Byantuyo, Satulo

Anglican Communion (Church of Uganda)

[TESO,  Muganda]

Satulo Byantuyo was educated at Budo. In 1914 he arrived in Teso, where he had already worked for a while previously, to be headmaster of Ngora High School.[1] He was a very good teacher who worked hard, was friendly with the Iteso, and did much to “uplift” the school.[2] After some years he returned to Buganda, but in 1948 he came back to Teso on a prolonged visit, staying at Kyere, and with Yakobo Okwerede and Archdeacon Odiit. He did not finally return to Buganda until 1963.[3]
