The Hospital Administrator Peninah Kanyange also expressed her regret at Mukasa’s death.
“It’s very sad to lose such a young, very hard working and self-motivated staff. For the little time I got to know him, Yasin was very humble but with words of wisdom. He worked very hard to achieve organizational goals. May his soul rest in eternal peace,” Kanyange said.
Winnie Atweta, a staff member said “Yasin, may your soul rest in peace. We have not even reached at your internal house but we are so sad. May the Lord have mercy on the wife, parents and all your friends,” Atweta posted.
