Former Bunyoro Kingdom Prime Minister (Omuhikirwa) Engineer Yabezi Kiiza Amooti has passed away.

He died on Sunday around 11:30pm at Masindi Kitara Medical Centre of diabetes and hypertension.

Eng. Yabezi, 78, served as the premier under Omukama Solomon Gafabusa Iguru from 2009 to 2012 when he resigned citing ill health.

He was the thirteenth Bunyoro Prime Minister.

Bunyoro’s spokesperson and first Deputy Prime Minister, Ronald Isagara, described the deceased as a true son and a pillar of Bunyoro who worked to ensure it regains its former glory.

“His tenure was at a time when the kingdom was discussing to getting its share of the royalties accrued from oil.

He ably spoke for the kingdom and his relentless stance to have the kingdom’s restituted assets returned by the central government will remain in the kingdom annals,” Isagara said.
