Buganda Katikiro Charles Peter Mayiga has advised political leaders in Uganda to cherish their avowed doctrines and to also respect human rights, ‘just as the late Sebaana Kizito did’.
Speaking at Ssebaana’ Kizitos requiem service held at Namirembe Cathedral earlier today, the Katikiro singled out politicians Democratic Party President General Norbert Mao, his colleague Medard Lubega Ssegona and UPC stalwart Olara Otunnu, urging them to emulate Ssebaana Kizito’s passion for peace and stability in Uganda.
Katikiro Mayiga also praised the late Sebaana Kizito for contributing to the development of the Buganda kingdom, emphasizing the deceased “loved his King and the culture in which he was born.”
“All Buganda kingdom flags will be raised at half must in appreciation of his service to Buganda kingdom and Uganda in general,” the Katikiro said in a condolence message delivered on behalf of Buganda Kingdom.
At the service, the deceased’s son Joseph Kizito, who works with the World Bank in Washington hailed the Democratic Party (where his father served as President General), Statewide Insurance Company (SWICO) and the government of Uganda for recognizing the Ssebaana Kizito’s contribution to the development of Uganda.
An entrepreneur of vast political and business connections, John Ssebaana Kizito, also served in various cabinet positions and once as Mayor of Kampala, succumbed to a stroke on July 3 at Nakasero Hospital after spending two weeks in intensive care.
