Gibson is the second born out of five siblings. His mother is a retail trader while his father is a soldier. While both parents were working, they could barely earn much from their meagre salaries to cater for basic needs such as education. Through such financial hardships, Gibson managed to attain his primary education through Universal Primary Education, at Mubende Tiger Army Primary School where he scored 15 aggregates at Primary Leaving Examinations.

With financial aid from his grandmother, Gibson proceeded to Bishop Comboni College School and obtained 30 aggregates at Uganda Certificate of Education. When hope for further education was about to fade, The MasterCard Foundation at BRAC-Uganda came to his rescue and offered him a Scholarship at Hana Mixed Secondary School. He thus completed Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education with 17 points. The MasterCard Foundation Scholarship at Makerere University was the best thing that could have happened to Gibson dream of becoming a professional procurement officer. He believes that undergraduate education is his path to create awareness especially when it comes to business and development in his community.
