In Parliament, Deputy Speaker Anita Among has made a promise to push a proposal to have one of Kampala’s streets named after the late Bulaimu Muwanga Kibirige (BMK).
After a long fight with cancer, Ugandan businessman BMK, the owner of the famous Hotel Africana, passed away in Nairobi.
In his speech at the funeral, Amongst informed attendees that the parliament will honor BMK by voting to name a roadway after him.
We all felt the effect of BMK, and as a collective parliament, we have decided that we won’t allow his name to die. “We’re naming a street after BMK,” Among said, “and we’ll do it by passing a motion.”
Among praised BMK as a fantastic businessman who would go down in history for his contributions to the nation’s growth.
The burial took place in Busiro county in Wakiso district, in the village of Nkoowe.
A number of other notable individuals were at the funeral, including the Minister for Works and Transport, who represented President Museveni; the Katikkiro, Charles Peter Mayiga, who represented Buganda Kingdom; and Gen Katumba Wamala, who also represented President Museveni.
Parliament members, the Hotel Owners, and NRM Vice Chairperson Al Haji Moses Kigongo joined him.
Mayiga said that people who wish to aid Uganda’s development should learn from BMK’s life.
