RIP: DP's Mathias Nsubuga
Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) former President, Dr. Kiiza Besigye has Monday joined rest of the Ugandans to mourn the sudden death of Democratic Party (DP) Secretary General, Mathias Nsubuga.
The DP secretary General died on Sunday evening at Case clinic in Kampala after scumming to ‘massive stroke’ which attacked him on Friday evening.
In his address to the media in Tororo, Besigye noted that the country has lost a fair minded man who had dedicated his entire life to fight for the freedom of Ugandans.
“I am saddened by the death of DP Secretary General Mathia Nsubuga whom I have known for a very long time. My condolences go out to his family and our DP colleagues,” Besigye said.
“Mr. Nsubuga was a nice person and fair minded who worked tirelessly for a free Uganda.
“Our best country contribution, for his memory, is to see that we achieve what Nsubuga died trying to deliver- a free and democratic Uganda,” Besigye noted.
Besigye rallied Ugandans not to let Nsubuga’s dream die with him but rather pick it up and do everything possible within peoples’ power to have it delivered.
By the time of his death, Nsubuga has been the Chairperson of the Council of the Interparty Platform for Dialogue (IPOD) and his major task was to push for Electoral Reforms before next elections.
Nsubuga is remembered for leading the council of Secretary Generals to State House to meet President Museveni a move which was greatly criticized by the FDC leadership and some Ugandans.
In the meeting at State House, Nsubuga pleaded with President Museveni to have Besigye released from Luzira prison where he was locked over treason charges.
