Mr. Kirunda was born in Iganga Town in 1979 to Mr. Sanoni Atanaziraba and Ms. Edinansi Nakisita. Since both his parents were illiterate, in all his writings, the author is trying to write from the point view of illiterate tribal people like his parents who have no voice in the current debates about our society. He attended Iganga Town Council Primary School (1986 –1989) and Nkumba Primary School (1990 –1993). In 1994 Mr. Kirunda started his secondary school at King’s College Budo. After senior four, Budo nominated him for the United World College scholarship national contest, at which he was selected to go represent Uganda at the United World College-USA. He did his Bachelor’s degree in Engineering at Lafayette College (Pennslyvania) and Master of Science in Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. After working five years as a Civil Engineer in New Mexico and Texas, he currently works in the Investment Banking industry in Salt Lake City, Utah. In his leisure time, Mr. Kirunda enjoys playing rugby, skiing, biking, running, swimming and exploring the beautiful American Southwest region.
Giddings notes that unlike other organizations with racial goals, Delta Sigma Theta was created to change and benefit individuals rather than society. As a sorority, it was formed to bring women together as sisters, but at the some time to address the divisive, often class-related issues confronting black women in our society. There is, in Giddings's eyes, a tension between these goals that makes Delta Sigma Theta a fascinating microcosm of the struggles of black women and their organizations.
