President Museveni, has challenged Ugandans to be very conscious of their health issues to live longer so that they exploit fully their talents, knowledge and other human resources before passing on.
The president made the remarks today during a funeral service of Yona Namawa Waphakhabulo who succumbed to a bacterial infection that attacked his heart before spreading to his lungs.
A funeral service was held on Friday at All Saint’s Cathedral Nakasero in Kampala and it was led by Rev. Canon Godfrey Byarugaba.
“I always have problems at funeral functions like this one. People repeatedly say God called the person that has died. I am not happy about it. Has God run short of company,” the president said.
Mr. Namawa passed on at Platinum Medical Centre in Kampala last Monday aged 46 years old.
He was son to former Parliamentary Speaker, late James Francis Wambogo Wapakhabulo and Ambassador Angelina Wapakhabulo.
