On Thursday President Yoweri Museveni visited the family of the late former Kampala mayor John Ssebaana Kizito in Kampala to condole with them as well as paying his last respect.
During the visit, Museveni praised the fallen politician cum businessman as a disciplined entrepreneur who advocated for non-frictional politics adding that he also pioneered education in Luweero way back in 1950s.
Museveni further said that Ssebaana was among the few successful entrepreneurs Uganda had who had a lot of property minus bank loans.
“Sebaana was a disciplined entrepreneur who advocated for non-frictional politics. He also pioneered education in Luweero in the 1950s.I appreciate him because he was among the few entrepreneurs we have in Uganda. I hear he had a lot of properties and that he died minus bank loans. He was a real businessman,” said Museveni.
“He was a social person who loved everybody regardless of who they were. He was close to my father Amos Kaguta. Once, he came with his wife to Nakasero to see Mzee Kaguta. They bypassed me and when I asked, they said they had known each other while I was in the Bush,” he added.
Museveni also commended Ssebaana and Paul Kawanga Semwogerere for their role in the Democratic Party.
“I commend him and Paul Kawanga Semogerere for their role in the DP, helping shape and change Uganda. Sebaana was a minister and served this country greatly,” He stated.
