Commonly known as mzee Boniface Byanyima, the father of Oxfam International executive director, Winnie Byanyima, has died Tuesday at Nakasero hospital in Kampala.

He was the father-in-law to former Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] presidential candidate, Rtd Col Dr Kizza Besigye Kifefe, and a guardian to President Yoweri Museveni.

Byanyima joins his wife, Gertrude Kabwasingo Byanyima, who passed on a few years back and was laid to rest at Ruti in Mbarara district.

Regarded by many as a visionary leader, Mzee Byanyima was once a Democratic Party [DP] national chairman.

He is recorded to have remained steadfast when DP in Parliament led by Basil Bataringaya crossed to Uganda People’s Congress [UPC].

Besigye in his tribute said mzee Byanyima “He lovingly upheld principles of truth & justice to the end! Will be dearly missed.”
