Former Kampala mayor, Nasser Ntege Sebaggala, alias Seya, will be buried on Sunday next week according to family members in charge of the burial arrangements.
Speaking to the media at their home in Kisaasi, a Kampala City suburb, Mr Muhammed Sebaggala, the deceased’s brother, said they decided to bury him one week after his demise, contrary to the Muslim tradition because his children have to be present at the burial.
“My brother wanted all his children to be at his funeral and that is why we have chosen this date because his last child arrives in the country on Saturday...,”  said Mr Sebaggala.
Seya, succumbed to cardiac arrest at Kampala International Hospital on Saturday morning, according to his younger brother, Mr Latif Sebaggala, the MP for Kawempe North. He had been on life support for weeks, family and medical sources say.
Mr Sebaggala said in case of any changes within the burial programme, there would be a formal communication put out to the public through different channels.
“His death is a big blow to the family and we want to accord him a decent burial, especially abiding by what he always wanted at his funeral. If there are any changes in the burial arrangements, we shall inform the public through the usual means,” he said.
