Prof Mukiibi demanded white funeral, burial lest he jumps out of coffin & attacks mourners

Prof Mukiibi demanded an all-white funeral and burial

The Late Prof. Lawrence Mukiibi, Proprietor of St. Lawrence schools & colleges, left strict instructions for an all-white funeral and burial to be prepared for him.

He was laid to rest on Friday June 2, at his home in Katende, Mpigi District having died on Sunday May 28th after suffering cardiac arrest at Norvik Hospital in Kampala.

The Vice President Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi attended the burial and eulogized the founder of St. Lawrence Colleges/Schools and St. Lawrence University Late Prof. Lawrence Mukiibi as a Great Educationist who is going to be missed by the Family and the Country at large.

All white funeral and burial

Speaking before his death at NBS TV “People and Power” programme, Mukiibi maintained that his burial [after he died] has to be all white.

Mourners had to be in white

“I want to be buried in white because I know heaven and the angels are white and that is where I am going. All people must be in white or else I will jump out of the coffin and attack them,” he told NBS TV host, Mable Twegumye.

Mable: If you died today, would you die a happy man?

Prof. Mukiibi: Yes. But when I die, I want a white funeral. I want to be buried in a white coffin, the funeral service agents should all be dressed in white. I do not want to be buried in black because it is associated with bad things only.


Even the coffin was white

Asked how many chidden he has fathered, Mukiibi said it is a taboo for an African man to count children.

“It is a taboo to ask an African man how many children he has, especially a man of my age. But I have many children, I keep adopting,” he said, dodging the question most Ugandans are asking since the professor is said to have left behind countless children to his name.

Rising to own best schools

Prof. Mukiibi said while in school, he was not the fanciest boy.

“I was very humble and my father was an agriculturalist. While in school, my friends always went home and I stayed to work on school gardens and sites.”

Mukiibi used not to like it but he worked because he wanted to raise some money.

“I always said to myself I will own a school when I grow up.”

When he finished school, times were not good so he went to Kenya in exile.

He later became a head teacher at Afraha School in Kenya and changed it immensely.

He returned to Uganda in 1989 and worked at Kampala Parents School as a teacher.

“I saved up UGX. 300,000 and a friend lent me UGX. 200,000 and in 1993, I started Kabaka’s lake with UGX. 500,000.”

To start a school, one does not need a lot of money, he says, adding, “all you need is determination and support”.

“However, when you want to start up something, you have got to save up money for it.”
