Archbishop Dr. Steven Kaziimba Mugalu has urged all believers to put their houses in order because God can call them anytime.
Kaziimba was the main celebrant at a funeral service of the Late Lt Gen Pecos Kutesa at his residence in Buziga Kampala.
He encouraged people not to fear because God is always there for them.
“He is your refuge and strength. We have questions that only God can answer. Our help is the name of the lord,” he counselled.
He thanked Dora Kutesa, the widow of the fallen General, for her love and care to Pecos for the 41 years spent in marriage.
“Maama Dora thank you so much for the gift of love, your husband testified it to me that you donated your liver to him. You gave him a second chance to live for a period of twelve years with your liver. I was really touched by that revelation because you fulfilled this vow of love that is equitable to Jesus who sacrificed his life for the sinners,” he said.
Lt Gen James Mugira who represented the Chief of Defence Forces said that UPDF was saddened by the loss of a liberator, a patriot, a freedom fighter and a national hero.
“Our condolences go to the family of Gen Kutesa, UPDF family and all the friends. He has served this country diligently and as a senior cadre his input was really needed,” Mugira said.
The Permanent Secretary Ministry of Defence and Veterans Affairs, Rosette Byengoma praised the fallen general for being a brilliant and intelligent officer, who supritended over the writing of the Uganda Defence Doctrine and the UPDF Establishment.
She acknowledged that the Ministry of Defence and Veterans Affairs cannot forget all his contribution towards the restoration of peace in this country.”
Kutesa was buried at his country home in Kabula country Lyantonde district yesterday.
