Former Makindye West MP Hussein Kyanjo has died.
Kyanjo died early Saturday morning at Kibuli Muslim hospital.
His death comes after more than 10 years of battling a strange health condition he personally linked to poisoning.
National Unity Platform (NUP) party Secretary General Lewis Rubongoya, said visited Kyanjo about month ago at his home in Munyonyo.
“He was going through incredible pain after suffering for such a long time. It is very painful that he has left us. Hajj Kyanjo will be remembered for being a firm and impassioned believer in good governance. He made incredible sacrifices in the pursuit of those ideals,” Rubongoya noted.
Hon Mukasa Middle described the late as “a rhetor, spieler, and the unfeigned real McCoy of our times”.
“A devout and true in splice. The brilliant brainiac and polymath, whose absence leaves a void in our intellectual landscape,” Middle tweeted.
Speaker of Parliament Anitah Among eulogized the deceased for his political contributions.
“Hajj set the bar for legislative excellence and leaves a legacy of a distinguished lawmaker, a unifying factor and a leader who exhibited integrity. Our sympathies to his family, friends and the people of Makindye West, Kampala, and Uganda at large,” she said.
