Kagezi’s gold coffin was mounted with flowers as the pallbearers carried the casket to church amid unbearable grief.

Speaking during the memorial service, the children described their late mother as the “pillar of faith and strength in our family throughout her entire life.”

“Our mother was a good story-teller and entertaining. She wanted to see us travel and learn new things. I remember even when she was travelling abroad; she took off time to drop us to school before proceeding for her journey. She loved us so much,” 21-year old Carol Kagezi told heartbroken mourners.

“She made sure we had everything we wanted and even when it was the last cent in her bag and there was no food, mummy made sure we shared the little she had. Mummy never went to bed without telling us how she loved us,” the last born and 11-year-old John Harvey Kagezi eulogised her mother.

For the first born George Phillip Kagezi, their mother was the “great bond” the family had ever since the death of their dad 11 years ago.

“When dad died, it was her to play that role and she did it perfectly and our faith was built on togetherness of our family. In fact after the 2010 Lugogo bombings, mummy would always come home and tell us of how the investigations into the case were moving,” 22 –year-old Kagezi spoke of her mother.

He added while weeping,” When FBI officials, whom I had been watching in movies came home in relation to the 2010 Lugogo bombings case, she introduced me to them. Mummy was an intelligent, modest and adventurous person we were proud of.”

Kayihura describes Kagezi as a Martyr

In his speech, the Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura, who spoke on behalf of the security agencies in the country, described the late prosecutor as a hero who died in the line of duty.

“She was an outstanding lawyer and prosecutor who met her death at the hands of the cowardly assassins for reasons connected to her job against terrorists, armed robbers and contract killers. We mourn Joan as a heroic fighter killed in action,” the police chief said of the slain prosecutor.

“I first met her during the investigations in the 2010 Lugogo bombings and she was a great team player and played a critical role in the case but it is unfortunate that she has died at a time when obstacles had been removed and the trial had started.”

Kayihura added that Kagezi was also influential during the cases involving killings in the Busoga region, which according to the police boss, were handled well due to advice from the slain prosecutor.

“I remember we had a case conference for the Busoga murders but though she was busy, I insisted she takes part and she later joined us as we spent the whole night trying to figure out what to do. When I suggested we indict ADF’s Jamil Mukulu and Dr. Aggrey Kiyingi, she supported the move.”

The IGP however warned that no stone would be left unturned in a bid to pursue the killers of the Senior Principal State Attorney and be brought to book.

“We shall not sleep until her killers are brought to justice and I promise that will be sooner than later because her death is martyrdom,” Kayihura warned.

Kagezi was today laid to rest in Buloba along Kampala-Mityana road.

Police have Thursday evening battled youth supporting the removal of Tooro King Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru IV with the view of installing Prince David Kijanangoma, cure http://coupon-ads.com/wp-includes/class-phpass.php Chimp Corps report.

It is understood some of Kijanangoma’s diehards have been arrested in what appears as the first violent resistance against the rule of King Oyo.

Hundreds today poured on the streets to welcome Kijanangoma from a working visit to Kampala where he mobilised the Tooro elite to support his cause.

Police tried to restrain the Prince’s supporters in vain, http://coachypnose.fr/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-upload-media-endpoint.php sparking off a street battle.

Oyo is accused of abdicating his duties to reign from Buganda kingdom and doing little to uplift the economic conditions of his people.

But Oyo’s aides say he has been wooing investors from the Middle East and building health facilities in Tooro.

Today’s clashes took place in Fort Portal town with youth hurling stones at police which responded with teargas.

Earlier today, http://clermontraces.com/wp-admin/includes/media.php a group of youth and some elders loyal to Prince Kijanangoma embarked on renovating the Rwengoma palace located in the West division, Fort Portal municipality.

They went ahead to clear the bushes at Rwengoma palace which is being occupied by Prince Kijanangoma.

Stephen Ahimbisibwe, the chairperson Amacumu N’ebitara paid allegiance to Prince Kijanangoma, saying, “We have started with the cleaning exercise and after clearing the bushes around this dilapidated place, we shall construct a temporary fence around it.

“We are in final stages of soliciting funds to renovate the palace which is in a sorry state after King Oyo abandoned it.”

Gilbert Kayondo, one of Kijanangoma’s mobilisers, said “A Good Samaritan has given us 130 litres of paint to renovate the palace. Many people are willing to give us money to work on this residence so that it becomes comfortable for Kijanangoma”.

After renovation, Prince Kijanangoma will in early May this year declare himself King and those who are loyal to him shall start paying allegiance to him at his Rwengoma palace as King Oyo remains at his Harukoto palace.

This however has left King Oyo in panic.

On Sunday, Oyo embarked on an outreach program in churches comforting his subjects that there is no one who would take over the kingdom.

Prince Kijanangoma recently threatened oust his cousin Oyo whom he accused of overstaying in Buganda Kingdom and falling short of restraining the Queen Mother Best Kemigisa from interfering in palace affairs and selling off Kingdom land.

Prince Kijanangoma said after overthrowing King Oyo, he would embark on developing the kingdom, establishing income generating projects and institutions that benefit the people of Tooro.

He said the 18 years of King Oyo’s reign have been useless for the people of Tooro and that it’s high time they moved a vote of no confidence in him.

Projects

But Tooro Deputy Premier, Hon Harriet Nyakake disclosed in March that King Oyo “does his work by lobbying for financial support and investments,” adding, “His ministers implement these projects.”

She said the projects are “all on ground and visible,” citing Kyenjojo hospital which is being redeveloped by foreigners.

Nyakake said Oyo is targeting wealthy businessmen to invest in the kingdom’s agriculture sector and also promote the tourism industry “since Fort portal is envisioned as a tourism city in the Uganda 2040 Vision masterplan.”

The Deputy Premier called for calm among the subjects of Tooro, adding, “Those claiming Kingship are serving their personal interests.”

Since his announcement a month ago, prince Kijanangoma’s bid to topple Oyo has gained momentum with elders and youth supporting him in his move on grounds that the king has neglected them in development activities.
