KAMPALA – Former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) president Dr. Kizza Besigye has lauded fallen Prof Bwogi Richard Kanyerezi, the founder of Kampala Hospital for being industrious, consistent and entrepreneurial.
Dr Besigye was on Wednesday, January 1 attending funeral service for the Late Prof. Bwogi at Namirembe Cathedral in Kampala who passed away on December 30, 2019 at the age of 85.
Besigye also praised Prof Bwogi for offering him medical services for as long as he has been in the struggle against President Museveni.
“Since I started opposing Mr. Museveni, I have survived on the hospital established by Prof. Bwogi. His hospital has been my life line. If Kampala Hospital didn’t exist, I don’t know how we would have survived all these years,” Besigye said.
Prof. Bwogi was the founder of Kololo based Hospital, Kampala Hospital.
Besigye appreciated Bwogi’s philosophy of doing proper vetting on people to understand how they were raised before working with them or giving them offices.
“Although I initially disagreed with him of that philosophy, thinking it was elitist, I now appreciate why he emphasised it. Part of the problem we are struggling with today is dealing with people whom we never vetted to know of they were well nurtured. Growing up in broken families has also had a bad effect of people on in their adulthood.”
Prof. Bwogi Richard Kanyerezi will be laid to rest on Thursday, January 2.
