President Yoweri Museveni has pledged to pay school fees for all slain prosecutor Joan Kagezi’s school going children until they are “tired” of studying, mourners were told on Thursday evening.
President Museveni who did not attend the burial but rather sent a message that was read to the mourners stated that he will take on the four children of the late Joan Kagezi and provide for their education needs until they are through with school.
The message by the president was further confirmed by Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura who told this reporter that: “There are no worries the president will take care of every education need for these children.”
Ms Kagezi was shot dead on Monday evening by unknown assailants as she drove home from collecting her children from school. A funeral service was held for her deceased soul at St Luke Church Ntinda, Kampala on Thursday morning and later she was put to rest at Bukasa, Temangalo in Wakiso district.
Ms Kagezi is survived by four children George Phillip Kagezi 22, Carol Milcah Kagezi 21, Pearl Priscillar Kagezi 16, and eleven-year old John Harvey Kagezi. She was married to the late Henry Morton Kagezi.
