Today, Wednesday, 1 June, 2011, the widow of the Late prof. Yusuf Kironde Lule will be buried at Kasenge along Nakawuka road. The death of the widow reminds Uganda of a missed opportunity of having the Late Prof. Lule who had been endorsed by the people of Uganda and was removed by opportunists who are after exploiting the country and its riches. Lule was welcome by Ugandans when the UNLF appointed him as Head of State and was in office for 68 days. Ever since Ugandans are surely in a vacuume because he is a leader in whom they had a lot of hope. may the soul of Hannah Lule rest in eternal peace.
