City Hall has Friday morning received the body of former mayor of Kampala Al Hajj Nasser Ntegge Ssebaggala.
A special council sitting is being held in his honour and remembrance of his works.
Sebaggala died at International Hospital Kampala last week.
He fell in his home in Munyonyo on September 7, and was rushed to IHK with abdominal complications.
At IHK he was diagnosed with intussusception; a condition in which one segment of intestine inverts within another, causing an intestinal obstruction.
He was subsequently subjected to an emergency surgery which was successfully performed but he never recovered.
Sebaggala, a former member of the Democratic Party had recently returned to the political scene when he sought the endorsement of the People Power pressure group to contest for the position of Kampala Lord Mayor, for yet another turn.
Sebaggala had served as an advisor to President Yoweri Museveni in 2012.
The seasoned politician came to the limelight in the late 90s’ when he won the race for the mayor of Kampala beating Wasswa Biriggwa and Christopher Yiga.
He did not complete his term of office after he was arrested in the United States of America on charges of making false statements, bank fraud, and transporting altered securities.
