The titular head of Muslims in Uganda, Prince Kassim Nakibinge,has urged Ugandans to adapt and embrace the habit of making a will when they are still alive to avoid family tension when they are no longer around anymore.
Nakibinge made the remarks as he joined the family of Late Hajj Muhamood Mirundi to remember him and pray for him at a Duwa organised in Kabungo, Kalungu District. The event took place at the weekend.
Mirundi was the father of Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and several other prominent persons in the country. Mirundi died at the age of 93 in August after a long illness associated with advanced age.
“We should understand that making a will when you are still alive is something very important. Any time you are returning back to your creator the Almighty God. So, it is good to die when you have not left confusion among the family’s members and those you are responsible for, “he noted.
The leader of National Unity Platform (NUP) Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine said he was humbled to join other eminent elders and leaders to pray for, and remember a man who left behind such a great legacy.
Kyagulanyi used the occasion to call upon Ugandans to shun and reject injustice and oppression which he said has become a norm in Uganda.
“Don’t associate yourselves with those orchestrating injustice in this country. Let’s wake up and speak the truth. Not all is lost and let’s have hope. The new Uganda that we are fighting for is not far, “he said.
Kyagulanyi expressed sadness that many of his supporters are being abducted in broad daylight and some of them, their whereabouts, are unknown up to date.
“Our brothers are in prison for unknown reasons. They have not committed any crime. This is the kind of situation in the country. The situation is becoming worse each day. It is our reasonability to ensure that we liberate this country, “he said.
Supreme Mufti Sheikh Shaban Galabuzi who was among the guests who embraced the function urged parents to educate children and ensure that they pay for schools and provide other necessities in time.
Lukwago expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the distinguished leaders and friends who graced the funeral prayers for his late father.
The burial was attended by various government officials, politicians, religious leaders and members of the business community from both Masaka and Kampala.
