Beatrice Mugisha, the mother to businessman Arnold Mugisha, who was shot during an altercation at Quality shopping village in Naalya, has said will not mourn her son until she witnesses justice for his death.
The bitter talking Beatrice Mugisha revealed that she hadn’t shed a single tear from the time she got the news of her son’s death, and she is not yet about to.
“I will not revenge, I will ask God to give me answers, until then, I will not mourn my son” she said.
Contrary to her husband’s request, Mrs Mugisha said she doesn’t require government help to bring her son’s killer to justice.
“Plan (Mugisha) has asked for government’s help, I will not ask for it. Satan will not kill my son and go free. I am going to kneel and pray until justice is served. I wont cry except when in front of God,” she added amidst cheers and clapping.
Rev Medard Birungibyayesu called upon the family to be forgiving. He also asked them to emulate Job in the bible who lost all but God gave it to him back in tenfold.
“Your son has gone to be with the Lord and one day, you will see him,” he said.
“Secondly Job blessed all his enemies, those who hurt him, he did not only forgive them but he blessed them,” he added.
Arnold’s friends revered him as caring and kind. A friend of his, before she broke down at the pulpit, said Arnold had left many unfulfilled plans in his life.
Angoria Moses, the Saracen attached guard that shot Arnold is currently recovering from mob justice wounds at the Mulago hospital. Police confirm that while there, he is under arrest and a possible charge of murder will be levelled on him.
Arnold’s casket was wheeled out of the All Saints Cathedral in Nakasero to a processional hymn, “God Be With You”
Friends and mourners, mostly in tears, took turns to view it. He will be buried at a country home in Ntungamo on Friday after a vigil later tonight in Kiwatule.
