The Namutumba LCV chairperson, Saleh Kumbuga was on Thursday evening laid to rest in Bukaba village, Namutumba town council.

Kumbuga succumbed to Covid-19 on Wednesday morning at Mulago national referral hospital after spending two weeks in intensive care unit.

His funeral was restricted to family members and close friends under strict observance of the covid-19 standard operating procedures with an aim of preventing further infections.

Councillors led by the speaker, Katoko Maganda, resolved to hold a special council sitting in respect of their fallen colleague. 

Maganda says that Kumbuga was a selfless leader who strove to ensure harmony within the district. "Before he became our chairman, the district was grappling with endless battles between the technical staff and the political wing but Kumbuga strove for a leveled ground that has since enabled both parties to cooperate and foster service delivery for the electorate," he says.

George Damba, the councilor representing Nsinze sub county, says that Kumbuga was a team player who focused on ironing out differences with colleagues amicably.

Kumbuga is survived by three wives and eight children.
