“The late Kategaya has been friendly, calm and I have never had him in any clash in politics. I have been interacting with him , he has been good all the time. We are going to miss him as NRM party because he has been available to serve the party in all circumstances. He has also been moving EAC Affairs maturely” The minister noted
“He has been exemplary and he has never involved in any corrupt scandal because he has been incorruptible,” She added
