In Celebrating Literacy in the Rwenzori Region, Kambere takes a step-by-step walk through his life while relating the forces that instituted change in the educational system. The region saw eight new government grant-aided secondary schools, two partially grant-aided secondary schools, one private secondary school, two primary teacher training colleges, and a technical school.
At age twenty-six, as the youngest member of Parliament ever elected in Uganda, Kambere didn't have much on his political manifesto except the recognition that his people were educationally backward. His task was to convince the population that education was the best weapon to fight backwardness, poverty, repression, and enslavement.
Celebrating Literacy in the Rwenzori Region tells his story for the next generation, to convey to them the lessons to be learned and the importance of education.
