President Museveni has paid tribute to former Minister Dr Wilberforce Kisamba Mugerwa who succumbed to the Covid-19 disease on January 7thdescribing him as a pioneer of important projects in both public and the private sector targeting elimination of social and economic stagnation in Uganda.
This was contained in his condolence message to the bereaved family delivered by the State Minister for Higher Education Dr JC Muyingo at the final send-off ceremony at the family burial ground in Kikonda village, Bamunanika Subcounty in Luweero District yesterday.
He said Kisamba contributed immensely to the drive towards transforming Uganda’s Agriculture from Subsistence to modern Commercial farming.
Museveni said Dr Kisamba Mugerwa had gathered a vast wealth of experience that enabled him to serve with distinction and diligence in various capacities.
The president thus urged Ugandans to celebrate the life achievements of Dr Kisamba Mugerwa by carrying on his great works and legacy that have transformed many lives in Uganda.
Earlier the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda Dr Stephen Kazimba Mugalu described Dr Kisamba Mugerwa as a generous person who not only contributed to the growth and development of the Church Projects but loved to see everybody move to the next level for a better livelihood.
The fallen Agricultural Economist was Board Chairman Microfinance Support Centre and former Executive Chairperson National Planning Authority.
