Lumumba added, “Now that he has passed on, this is a challenge to all political parties in the country since when you read in the media, even in meetings, you see that all political parties in the country have internal conflicts but this is a man who tried his best to have dialogue within his party but also with other parties.”

“The passing on of Segganyi comes barely two months after the nation has mourned the late Mathias Nsubuga the then Secretary General of DP and then the sitting chair of IPOD. Both have died of ailments which are preventable which should serve as a lesson to all of us politicians.”

“Let’s go and keep checking ourselves in the health units, centers and hospitals that are available and near us. On behalf of NRM and myself, accept our humble contribution of Sh5m to the family towards the burial expenses.”
