The requiem mass for Foster Byarugaba, the legendary political science professor, is currently ongoing at St Augustine Catholic Church, Makerere.
Prof Byarugaba, who founded the Department of Political Science and the East African Uongozi Institute, died on Sunday after suffering a stroke.
Several academicians, politicians and other government officials, including former Prime Minister Apollo Nsibambi, are attending the requiem mass.
Prof Byarugaba, who taught at the university for more than two decades, had retired into private consultancy by the time of his death.
He is also remembered for staunchly supporting the ruling NRM party. He will be laid to rest on Friday at his ancestral home in Mugalike village, Kagadi
