It has been one of the saddest week in my Town...My major activity these days is to go bury my people,people I know by name,my friends,my constituents...soon I will need a counsellor;its not easy being a Member of Parliament in Uganda.
Today am in Busiitwe for the burial of Betty Nakigudde daughter of late Hon.Mambule Kiggundu my predecessor in Parliament and grand daughter of Rev.Kibirige Mambule.Betty has been sister to Margaret Katende wife of Owek.Katende.
Their family was responsible for my transformation from the humble girl of Mukono to the honourable Nambooze you see. Mambule Kiggundu was one of Mukono's finest but it took him a few years to create a political legacy that can't be matched in Mukono....And I have told mourners that one doesn't need up to eternity to do great things and create an everlasting legacy.
