Quality Chemicals boss F.X Kitaka dead at 85

Francis Xavier Kitaka, one of the founding directors of Quality Chemicals Limited, the firm that later partnered with the Indian giant Cipla to form pharmaceutical manufacturing company CiplaQCIL, has died.

The cause of Kitaka’s death is yet to be confirmed.

On September 24, 2018, CiplaQCIL will become the first privately founded Ugandan company to list on the Uganda Securities Exchange — arguably a milestone from its humble beginnings in Katwe slum.

CIPLAQCIL, is the only company in Sub-Saharan Africa that is authorised to manufacture triple therapy antiretroviral drugs.
