President Museveni has condoled with Ugandans upon the death of Dr. Alhaji Bulaimu Muwanga Kibirige populary known as BMK who succumbed to cancer last Friday in a Nairobi Hospital.
“The country has lost a great entrepreneur and innovative business leader, who profitably took advantage of Uganda’s vast business opportunities to create jobs and incomes for our people. His numerous investments in the services industry, agriculture, manufacturing etc. have created avenues for employment and
revenue for the country,” he said.
The President is on a working tour of Karamoja sub-region, where the late invested in a multi-billion hotel complex that has changed the face of Karamoja.
Museveni said BMK’s unwavering commitment and hard work enabled him to ascend to great heights of personal success and to create an international business empire from very humble beginnings and that he leaves behind a great example, worth emulating, especially for the young generation.
BMK is being laid to rest this Sunday at Salaam Muslim Cemetery at Nkoowe, approximately 13 miles on Hoima road in Wakiso district.
The deceased was the proprietor of the towering Africana hotel in Kololo, a leafy Kampala suburb.
Museveni said persistence and dedication to correct principles yield positive results in the long run.
“I wish to extend, on behalf of the people of Uganda, my family, the NRM Party and on my own behalf, heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the family, relatives and friends of the Late Alhaji Bulaimu Muwanga. My thoughts are with the family during this moment of grief and sorrow. I pray that Allah grant you the fortitude and courage to go through this loss,” he said.
