Rotarians around the world have been saddened by the sudden death of the President-elect of Rotary International, Sam F. Owori. Sam was a member of the Rotary Club of Kampala, Uganda, for 38 years. His term as Rotary's 108th President would have begun on 1 July 2018. He would have been the first Rotary International President from Uganda. 
David Watt met him when he came to our District 9940 Conference in Foxton in 2014. Sam was due to come to the 2017 Rotary Institutes in Darwin and in Auckland in September this year.
Rotary is establishing a memorial fund in Sam's honour and more details will be available soon.
