Amos Kaguta, President Museveni’s father was honorably laid to rest on Sunday in a ceremony which was attended by many, including the Tanzanian President, Jakaya Kikwete.
Mzee Kaguta died last week on Friday after being admitted at International Hospital Kampala (IHK) suffering from abdominal pains. Paul Kagame of Rwanda and Salva Kiir of South Sudan sent condolence messages to the first family.
The burial took place at President Museveni’s ancestral home in Rwakituura, Kiruhura District.
Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kagada said, “As President, we look to you as the father of this nation so in Mzee Amos, the nation has lost a grandfather,” said Ms Kadaga in her condolence message. “He has left a legacy of producing a son who has tremendously transformed this country.”
