Veteran singer, actor and politician Kato Lubwama Paul has today been laid to his eternal resting place in Nkozi.
On 07th June 2023, the country was shrouded in gloom following the untimely death of Kato Lubwama en route to Stana medical facility in Bunamwaya.
Based on his will, Kato Lubwama stipulated that he ought to be mourned for seven days before being laid off in Nkozi.
The aforementioned condition was met when numerous individuals from the music, political, and theatrical fields paid tribute to him at his residence in Mutundwe, Uganda National Theatre and then his ancestral home in Nkozi, Mawokota, Mpigi District.
Kato Lubwama’s burial plans, however, suffered a serious setback when the Catholic Church adamantly declined to preside over the prayers, claiming he believed in ancestral spirits rather than God.
In contrast to the Catholic Church’s decision, House of Prayer Ministries lead Pastor Aloysius Bugingo presided over prayers at Kato Lubwama’s funeral.
At his final burial place in Nkozi, Mawokota, Mpigi District, Kato Lubwama’s funeral drew a big crowd of mourners from all walks of life, including the Buganda Kingdom, members of the ruling government, opposition, musical, and among other sectors.
Unlike most funerals, Kato Lubwama was laid to rest at around 7: 00 PM amid the distraught and weeping mourners.
Late Paul Kato Lubwama has been laid to rest today in Nkozi.
