Socialite Bryan White alias Brian Kirumira seems to be unfazed by critics casting doubts over his intentions of helping the Saturday boat cruise victims.
The self-styled philanthropist has been camped at Mutima Beach in Mukono District since Sunday where he has helped the rescue team recover bodies of the people that died after MV Templar boat capsized on Lake Victoria with many partiers on board.
But his presence has rubbed a section of the public and some politicians the wrong way with Kampala Central MP Muhammad Nsereko recently questioning who he is to order around the police and UPDF Marine Units.
This was after a video emerged online showing, Bryan White seemingly supervising them while announcing a Shs.100,000 reward to the fishermen for each body they recover.
The unbothered Bryan White Foundation CEO has now pledged to offer support to the family of the fisherman, Bosco Owecho who died while rescuing people following the accident.
Bryan White has revealed that he went back to visit the family today morning, Friday 30 November, at Mutima Island, where he offered them a little support to sustain them.
He has also asked the widow to come up with a business idea that he will fund to generate continuous income for the family.
“As we mourn the loss of our beloved brothers and sisters who died on Saturday in a boat accident in Lake Victoria, I went back to Mutima Island this morning to meet the family of one hero Bosco Owecho who saved many and eventually lost his life as he tried to save more.
I have offered a little support to the family and I will continue providing necessary support to them. I have advised the wife of the deceased to come up with a business idea of her choice which I promise to fund so that the family can sustain itself.” Bryan White posted on Facebook.
This gesture has generated mixed reactions from social media users with some applauding him for having people’s interests at heart, while others attacked him for publicizing his good deeds.
