Former Forum for Democratic Change FDC president Col Dr.Warren Kiiza Besigye yesterday called on the people of Rukungiri to embrace vaccination.
He said that vaccination will boost their immunity reducing chances of contracting the deadly COVID 19 virus.
Besigye was addressing hundreds of mourners at the send-off of businessman Ben Kizahi in Maya cell, Kitimba ward, Western division of Rukungiri Municipality.
The late Kizahi succumbed to kidney complications at the age of 60 at Kampala International hospital.
Besigye narrated that he is back into the struggle against the current regime and has already launched a pressure group to oust President Museveni from power.
Besigye unhappily noted that Uganda is the only country in Africa at the moment in which schools are closed.
He described the late Ben Kizahi as a person who was hard working, friendly, and cooperative and an FDC strong pillar because at 60 years he taught people to work hard for a better life.
Jackeline Kizahi, wife to the deceased, described her late husband as a person who was developmental, God-fearing, and hardworking and that he taught Ugandans how to do business irrespective of tribe, age, and religion.
A number of politicians attended the burial including Roland Mugume Kaginda former Rukungiri municipality MP, Fred Tumuhirwe Turyamuhweza former Rujumbura county MP, Betty Muzanira former Rukungiri district woman MP, and Naboth Namanya the Rubabo county legislator among others.
