Mzee Kifaru, according to his children Emma Kweyunga and Isiah Kwesiga, died of prostate cancer which was noticed two years ago.
Emmanuel Kweyunga said that his father started planting tree plants when they were still young in 1980’s and tree seedlings managed to take them to very good schools.
Johnson Bitarabeho the Chairman of board of directors Rukararwe Partnership workshop for rural development where Mzee Kifaru was a board member noted that he learnt how to make all beds of seedlings and entire tree management from Rukararwe.
