RIP: Frederick Kakaire Menhya is dead


Death has robbed Busoga of the hereditary chief of Bugweri chiefdom Frederick Kakaire Menhya, order http://dejanmilutinovic.com/wp-content/plugins/unyson/framework/extensions/backups/class-fw-extension-backups.php Chimp Corps report.

In his early 90s, viagra sale http://contraboli.ro/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-comments-list-table.php Kakaire died from his country home in Buniokano village, http://clipvoice.it/administrator/components/com_search/controller.php Igombe sub-county Bugweri in Iganga district late Friday.

According to a family relative, Faisal Menhya, the body will be taken to Mulago hospital Kampala for postmortem.

The hereditary prince has for three years been bedridden battling diabetes and high blood pressure so much that he could no longer sit at Bugembe kingdom headquarters.

In late 2013, Chief Menhya delegated his son Samuel Menhya work as the chief because of his ill-health and the latter was instrumental in the election of the current Kyabazinga William Wilberforce Kadhumbula Nadiope Gabula IV in 2014.

He is one of the few chiefs who fully worked with the fallen Kyabazinga Henry Waako Muloki.

The kingdom administration and the bereaved family are holding emergency meeting to draw a programme for his send-off.

“It’s real sad news not only for Busoga but the whole of Uganda. Prince Menhya has been diligent and accommodative to all views before taking his informed decision. We have lost him at a time of forging unity and excellent leadership in the kingdom yet he would have played the best advisory role, May his soul rest in peace,” said the monarchy’s publicist, Andrew Ntange.

He dies at a time when preparations are in high gear for the coronation anniversary of his majesty the Kyabazinga on September 13 in Bukhooli chiefdom.

In 2013, he was part of the delegation that visited president Museveni at Entebbe State House to discuss modalities of ending Kyabazinga stalemate.

Yasin Waguma Ntembe, the embattled hereditary chief of Butembe says had it not been for the sober mind of the late Kakaire, Busoga would be still embroiled in turmoil that lasted for six years without Kyabazinga at Bugembe.

Emmanuel Mwidu, the president Joint Abasoga Nseete National Students Association (JANSA) described Kakaire’s death as a loss of Busoga’s ‘walking encyclopedia’ to the young generation.

“My executive committee was planning to visit Chief Kakaire in late September for some inquires about Busoga’s history. It’s unfortunate our plan has not succeeded,” he noted.
