At the start of the week, Ugandans were treated to a social media melodrama orchestrated by slain maverick police officer Muhammad Kirumira’s father Hajji Abubakar Kawooya.

Hajji Kawooya was disappointed by the fact that musician Catherine Kusasira had told him to tell the press that he got condolence money which he had not received.

He went wild in a viral video saying just like Kirumira was killed for the truth, he could not lie. talked to Kusasira on Tuesday who confirmed that she was meeting Kawooya at Calendar Rest House in Makindye to give him his money.

“I have his money. I’m meeting him to give it to him,” Kusasira told

Kusasira said she had approached the president in good faith to help out but has since been threatened and insulted for her charity endeavour.

After receiving the money which cooled him down, Kawooya said he would use it to build a house for late Kirumira’s widows and orphans.

She had earlier handed over Shs20m condolence money from President Museveni to the four widows of the late Kawuma Yasin who was killed in Arua.

But the late’s brother Al-thaabit Male disowned the widows saying the mothers of Kawuma’s children were known to them.

“We were clear when we rejected it yesterday that what we want is not cash but justice for our deceased loved one and in case any assistance is to be offered, it has to be official and not only for Kawuma but also orphans and widows of other people who were shot dead in the recent days,” Male said.

He added: “The same thing should be done for Kirumira’s orphans and widow (s), Abiriga’s orphans and widow (s) among others. Whoever received the said might be a widow or relative who is apparently not known to us.”
