Other Ugandans named on the list include Kevin Lubega, Brian Mutebi and Humphrey Nabimanya.

The 2018 list presents an opportunity for young Africans to stay committed to their individual causes and continue to blaze trails across their various fields according to Prince Akpah, founding President of Africa Youth Awards.
