City tycoon Eria Sebunnya Bugembe better known as Kasiwukira has been laid to rest. The fallen businessman was buried today at his ancestral grounds in Maaya Nazinga, Mpigi District on Masaka Road.
Thousands of mourners, including Uganda’s richest men, were on hand to send off the down to earth businessman.
He was described as ‘a man with humility.’ Fellow businessman and chairman Kwagalana Group Godfrey Kirumira was again quick to dismiss the police investigations report which said Kasiwukirahad died after being overrun by a vehicle.
He again called on police to mount a hunt for the killers.
At a thanksgiving on Sunday Kirumira had said: “We are not satisfied with police investigations. If Kasiwukira was knocked by a car, why doesn’t police explain to us why there were no smashed particles of the car windscreen or even treads of a breaking car.”
And he echoed this statement once again at the burial, where emotions were very high and deep.
Meanwhile the police operations commander Felix Andrew Kaweesi told mourners not to even think about an accident as the cause of Kasiwukira’s death.
“This was a well calculated murder,” Kaweesi said.
The businessman is survived by two wives and six children.
