He was taken to the palace to serve as Mwanga’s page when he was about 14 years old. He was baptized on 17th November 1885. He was a very pious and zealous Christian, always willing to teach others the catholic faith, example of which is Muwafu whom he was teaching and that became the source of his brutal death on 25th May 1886.
