MUKONO – The Bishop of Mukono Diocese, Rt. Rev. William James Ssebaggala has asked mourners to comfort Hon. Kibuule’s family during this hard time instead of asking questions about the circumstances under which their children died.
Rt. Rev Ssebagala made the remarks on Tuesday, May 14, at the State Minister for Water Hon. Ronald Kibuule’s home in Mbalala, Mukono district where he led service.
“In this trying time for the family of Hon. Kibuule for the loss of his children, let us reflect on our lives and desist from wagging our tongue but comfort the family,” said Rev. Ssebagala.
During the service Hon. Kibuule said that the twins, Raymon Kato and Rayden Wasswa were always welcoming children compared to the elders in his home.
He said that he will continue to give thanks to God for the gift of the twins when they were still alive.
He also asked the mourners to keep praying for them as they go through this difficult time.
Hon. Kibuule’s two-year twins drowned on Monday, May 13, in their family swimming pool while their parents were away and there was nobody to supervising them at the time of the incident.
The family caretakers, Ms. Peace Nankunda, Ms. Scovia Nabubwama, Mr. Lawerence Kibaya and Mr. Agrippa Kumanya were arrested by police to follow on the investigations of the death of Hon. Kibuule’s children.
Former Minister for Information and National Guidance Jim Muhwezi who was also at the service said that this incident has opened his eyes because he also has a swimming pool at his home.
He asked parents with pools in their homes to cover them as a measure to avoid drowning accidents.
Dignitaries in attendance were Vice President Edward Ssekandi, Minister Bagire, Minister John Muyingo among others.
Many took it to social media to extend their condolences to the Minister for his tragic loss.
The burial will take place on Wednesday, May 15, at Kapeke in Nama Sub-county in Mukono district at 4 pm.
