Renowned city lawyer Denis Nyombi has issued a very touching eulogy for his colleague Peter Kibirango, a prominent lawyer who was murdered last week under unclear circumstances.
Kibirango, who was very popular among the legal fraternity in Uganda, was reportedly lynched in Kitintale, a city suburb, after allegedly being suspected to be mobile phone thief. However, it later turned out that his murder had been masterminded by a Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF) officer identified as Gad Twijukye, who has since been arrested.
But it should be noted that the police are still baffled with circumstances under which Kibirango was murdered and they they still conducting investigations, or so they claim.
But shortly after his death, lawyer Nyombi eulogised him thus;
“I have learnt with sadness, the demise of my noble and learned brother PETER KIBIRANGO ESQ.
Peter died at case Hospital, in an Intensive Care Unit, struggling for his life, after being attacked by thugs a few days ago.
Peter was a humble, studious , hardworking inspirational man. A man, well known amongst us the law class of Jan n Sept. 2006/9 UCU, by the moniker Lord Denning. A name that he acquired due to his in-depth analysis of legal issues, in n outside class.
Speaking with some degree of stuttering, Peter would struggle to make his point able, with articulation and eloquence.
In practise as an advocate, Peter had picked pace and stride, as a force to reckon with amongst his contemporaries.
His dia wife, is left a widow at such a young age, in a manner of death, so wanting.
His family is left in tears, for the demise of their so young a son.
We his friends are left wondering, what’s going on in our country. With the insecurity eating up people day n night. We call upon the people in charge of this country, to know today its Peter, yesterday was another. But the scarge, however much you pretend to be in charge, is eating us up. You may sinken your efforts in the same rhetoric. But we as a nation, deserve better . We are living in a crazy country. Full and tainted of insecurity, fear and hopelessness. We deserve better.
Rest in Peace Learned Soul.
Yours verily, “
