President Museveni claims that many investments by BMK in the services, agricultural, and industrial industries are a boon to the economy, since they have given the country more jobs and revenue.
Mr. Bulaimu Muwanga Kibirige, a longtime entrepreneur who started off poor but went on to achieve immense success, died on September 10, 2021 at the age of 67.
It is suspected that BMK, who is known for his work ethic and relentless effort, died of cancer-related complications after many years of illness, with his last days spent in a Nairobi hospital.
Yesterday, BMK was interred at Nkoowe Village in Busiro County in Wakiso region, where he had founded the local cemetery.
President Museveni conveyed his sorrow on the loss of Dr. Alhaji Bulaimu Muwanga Kibirige with this statement: “I received, with profound regret, the news of the death of Dr. Alhaji Bulaimu Muwanga Kibirige.”
I’m thinking of the family at this time of sadness and grief.” “Please know that I’m praying for you and hoping that Allah gives you the strength and bravery to deal with this devastating loss.”
The country’s leader described a business leader who brought innovation and new jobs to Uganda, and was honored for it today.
President Museveni pointed out that hard work and commitment allowed BMK to gain personal success and turn his company into an international business empire.
