City Lawyers Eulogise Kibilango:
‘’I have learnt about the death of Advocate Kibirango Peter who was attacked on 14 October 2019 at Mutungo. He was a civil man and loved good governance. He together with Advocate Isaac Semakadde
“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 and outside class.
Speaking with some degree of stuttering, Peter would struggle to make his point able, with articulation and eloquence.
In practice 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. As friends, we 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 scourge, however much you pretend to be in charge, is eating us up. You may sink 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.
