“My mum, The Matriarch of Kanyandahi has retired! She was the kindest, warmest and most generous person I knew! Mwenda said of his deceased mother.
“She looked after and cared for everyone who came to our home: the sick, the hungry, the needy, she took care of them all. Her meagre resources were never exhausted.”
He said the vigil is right next to Heritage International School and that there will be a memorial service at All Saints Cathedral at 10 am on Wednesday and burial in Kanyandahi on Friday.
Several Ugandans including high profile Ugandans have since condoled with the family, posting their messages on social media.
