The passing on of Mzee Amosi Kaguta is a sad moment not only for the Kaguta Family but to the whole Country which has a lot to celebrate in his good parenthood, enduring character and nationalism. Mzee Amosi Kaguta and his contemporaries constitute a generation of Ugandans who sowed the political, religious and economic seeds upon which modern day Uganda was founded. By freely converting to Christianity in 1944 and sending his children to embrace formal education; he set his family, including our President, on a firm foundation to influence his Community and Country.
Not many parents have the opportunity to witness the achievements of their children as Mzee Kaguta has; by watching the performance of his children including H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, Gen.Caleb Akandwanaho, Dr.Violet Kajubiri and others.
This Nation and the World will always be grateful to him, for properly parenting his family which has contributed positively to Humanity. As a nation, we have lost an elder who has been an embodiment of knowledge and guidance in various issues; and somebody who contributed positively to the transformation of this Country, especially through his children.
At this very sad moment, let us thank the Almighty God for the gift of life that he gave to Mzee Amosi Kaguta and for all the accomplishments achieved in the 96 years of his earthly life.
On behalf of my family, Office and on my own behalf, I convey our sincere condolences to you, Your Excellency President Museveni, and through you to the Kaguta family and Basiita clan to which the late Mzee Amos Kaguta belonged.
May the soul of the late rest in eternal peace.
For God and my Country
