On the enduring legacy of Brig Gad Wilson Toko

Brig Gad Wilson Toko

August 18 marked 15 years since a dear friend and distinguished son of Uganda, Brig Gad Wilson Toko, passed on. Willy, as we fondly called him, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, August 18, 2002. It was a dark and painful day. His untimely death at only 59 years old was a national tragedy and big loss for Uganda.
Toko was vice president and minister of Defence of Uganda at a difficult time in our country’s history, from July 1985 to January 24, 1986. Prior to that he was general manager of Uganda Airlines from 1979-1985; director general of East African Airways Corporation from 1973-1976 and commander of the Uganda Air Force from 1971-1973. He served Uganda and East Africa honestly and selflessly with distinction.
