Uganda To Remember Obote

tadalafil geneva; font-size: small;”> The party’s Vice President, Joseph Bbosa said the family of the former Uganda president led by his widow Miria Kalule Obote is spearheading the preparations to celebrate the life of the departed Ugandan leader.

Bbosa added that the service will be held on October 10 at All Saints Cathedral, Nakasero in Kampala.

“There will be a reception after the service at Mpala Avenue in Kololo where friends, relatives and well-wishers will celebrate the achievements of late president,’’ stressed Bbosa.

The opposition political party Vice President therefore urged all Ugandans to attend the function.


Obote passed away in Johannesburg in 2005 and was the first prime minister of Uganda who received the Uganda National flag at independence in 1962.

The former UPC president was blamed for the 1966 crisis in Buganda that led to the exile of the then president of Uganda sir Edward Muteesa to the UK where he died in 1969.

Obote was overthrown by Okello Lutwa and fled the country in 1985 to Tanzania and later to Zambia before he died of kidney failure on October 10 2005 in Johannesburg.

The former prime minister was buried at his ancestral home in Akokolo and is survived by five children.
