Odonga Bosco, a Ugandan Cardiologist in Russia recently tied the knot with Russian girlfriend. Odonga was a child soldier rescued by a Russian volunteer in 2004. He was taken to live and study in Russia.
In 2004 he was rescued by a Russian volunteer & eventually came to live & study in our country, where he became a certified cardiologist. Congratulations! pic.twitter.com/mMXV71b55l

The news of Odonga’s marriage was shared by the Russian Embassy in Uganda through their Twitter handle and various people had beautiful messages for the lucky man.
Dr Ayume Charles wrote;
“Congrats Dr. Odonga. You defied all odds and your story is a best seller. Visit motherland once in a while and inspire some of the youth who have no hope; and try and look up your cohort who were not fortunate enough.”
Cong’s its an inspirational story

Many were also suggesting that Odonga’s story should be ran by big media networks in order to inspire former child soldiers or even current child soldiers out there.
My wedding wishes the new couple the best in their new journey.
