Kampala — Mzee Amos Kaguta, the father of Ugandan president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni died Friday morning at International Hospital Kampala, New Vision has learnt.
Details of his death are still unknown but what is certain is that Mr. Kaguta breathed his last at EAT 7.00am.
President Museveni is known to be the eldest of his children, born to his first wife Esteri Kokundeka Nganzi (RIP). Dr. Violet Froerich Kajubiri and Gen. Caleb Akandwanaho alias Salim Saleh are the president's other siblings.
The late Kaguta was largely known to be a cattle keeper.
Museveni once revealed how his family migrated from Ntungamo district in 1960s to Rwenkanja in Kashari and later to Rwakitura fleeing a disease that had almost wiped out their many herd of cattle.
And while senior Kaguta moved the dwindling herd to another location free of disease, Museveni said he moved with his mother - Esteri Kokundeka - and the younger siblings went to Rwenkanja in 1965.
Museveni has described his father before as a man of both character and discplinary instincts.
Burial arrangements for the deceased are underway.
