While at the funeral service of Court of Appeal judge Kenneth Kakuru at All Saints Church Nakasero last Friday, minister of Internal Affairs, Gen Kahinda Otafiire, vowed to the people that he will serve the people until the day he dies.
“I will retire last post. Last post means when I follow [Justice] Kakuru,” Gen Otafiire said, adding, “I don’t want to be mistaken, but my calling is to serve the people. I went to the bush not aware that I will retire. I could have retired there. [But] I am here. When my biological past catches up with me and I go from active service, I will go into volunteer reserve and I stay serving mankind.”
The late Justice Kakuru’s body arrived in Uganda on wednesday from Kenya where he died at Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi and was taken to A plus funeral home in Kampala. His death was attributed to cancer-related complications and he died at the age of was 65 years
Kakuru will always be remembered the only one out of the five judges to rule that removal of age limit was done illegally.
Gen Otafiire described the late Justice Kakuru as an honest person while Chief Justice Alphonse Owiny-Dollo said Justice Kakuru was a loyal friend.
