Government will also ensure existence of official pallbearers for the casket.
Okurut also says government has constituted a cabinet subcommittee to work with the family on the burial programme.
It comprises Hon. Wilson Muruli Mukasa (Minister in charge of the Presidency), Karooro Okurut, Hon. Sezi Mbaguta (Minister of State, Public Service), and Hon. Rukia Nakadama (Minister of State, Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development.)
“Government will continue to update the public on the subsequent arrangements,’ says Okurut.
