PRIME Minister Prof. Apolo Nsibambi has said he was touched when the department of languages at Makerere University published a journal in memory of his wife Rhoda.

Nsibambi was speaking during Rhoda’s memorial service at Namirembe Cathedral, during which Bishop Samuel Balaggadde Ssekadde delivered a sermon.

“I am delighted to reiterate that Rhoda accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour and we are certain that she is with the Lord and we hope to meet her,” Nsibambi said.

“Her departure leaves us to ponder over the lessons we learn from her exemplary life. The most significant is to learn to live in such a way that when we die even the undertaker who is paid to handle the dead will be sorry,” Nsibambi said, quoting from the Makerere Language Teaching Journal.

“We should learn to live in such a way that our epitaph shall not be engraved on stone, but written in the minds and hearts we leave behind” he added.

At the time of her death last year, Mrs. Nsibambi was an Associate Professor at Makerere University Language Education Department.

Among those present were Parliament Speaker Edward Ssekandi, Chief Justice Benjamin Odoki, First Deputy Premier Eriya Kategaya and Third Deputy Premier Brig. Moses Ali.
