She added: “If it was not the swimming pool, it could have been something else.”
Mrs. Kibuule further slammed critics on social media for ‘celebrating the death of her sons.
“Those of you on social media, I don’t know what you are on celebrating about our loss,” said Mrs. Kibuule.

sub-region as part of his national drive to foster wealth – giving the family UGX 20 million as condolences to the family of Hon. Kibuule.
