Vice President Edward Ssekandi has paid a tribute to the deceased twins of State Minister for Water Resources, Ronald Kibuule.
Kibuule’s 2-year-old twins, Raymon Kato and Rayden Wasswa were on Monday evening playing around the swimming pool when they drowned.
Ssekandi arrived at the Minister’s residence in Mbalala, Mukono on Tuesday morning.
He spoke briefly about what he described as an “unfortunate” incident.
“This was a very unfortunate incident for such young kids to die untimely because they have not committed any sins at their age,” said Ssekandi.
“But God loved them more,” he said.
He consoled the parents and siblings of the deceased, saying they should remain strong in such difficult times.
Ssekandi, who is traveling to China today, prayed for God’s love and compassion to be extended to be the bereaved family.
He was later chauffeured out of the residence.
Several current and former Cabinet Ministers, MPs, relatives and friends of the bereaved family are attending the prayer service inside Kibuule’s mansion.
Kibuule’s friends prayed to God to comfort him and his wife Fortunate after losing their precious boys.
Security remains tight in and outside the five-acre property for the visiting VIPs. Mukono Diocese Bishop Rev William Ssebagala is expected to lead the prayer service.
Mourners broke down uncontrollably as caskets containing the remains of the deceased were taken into the house.
Mayinja Walugembe, the chairman of the funeral preparations told ChimpReports on Tuesday morning that the burial ceremony for the deceased will be held tomorrow Wednesday in Kapeke village, Mukono – just a few miles away from the minister’s residence.
