price geneva;”>During a requiem mass held at St. Peters Cathedral in Namirembe on Monday, several kingdom dignitaries, relatives and friends recalled with grief of the modest and productive life the deceased had lived.

Buganda Prime Minister Charles Peter Mayiga praised Namasole’s great courage that saw her manage to juggle largely tasking office work as the Kingdom Queen mother with a good looking family and a lucrative cattle farm business.

“She was widowed at the age of 35 but she managed to bring up eleven children and scores of grand children, to whom she gave good education and turned them into recognizable citizens.”

Mayiga described her as a “hard working woman with a lot of passion for her cattle for which she personally ferried feeds on her pick-up vehicle at that prime stage of her life.”

Born January 12 1932, Sarah was the heir to Kabaka Mutebi’s Mother Sarah Kisosonkole who passed on in the early 1970’s.

Premier Mayiga said during the prayers that a new Namasole had been selected and would be announced at an appropriate time.

Rtd Arch Bishop of Church of Uganda, Most reverend Mpalanyi Nkoyoyo, who presided over the service, talked of the deceased as a strong, dedicated and God-fearing woman who worked tirelessly to support a lot of church activities including charitable projects and structural development.

The body of Zirimbuga will this Tuesday evening be laid to rest at her ancestral home in Mukonzi, Ssingo.
