Parliament on Thursday held a special session to pay tribute to the fallen former minister of justice and constitutional affairs Jehoash Mayanja Nkangi.

The body of the former Buganda Katikkiro was delivered at Parliament at noon and laid in state for MPs and other members of the public to view and pay last respect.

The motion to pay tribute to Nkangi was moved by the First Deputy Premier Gen. Moses Ali. He described the late Nkangi as a gallant son who served Uganda meticulously.

“The country has lost an accomplished lawyer, an economist, father and a statesman. Hon Mayanja Nkangi served Uganda unselfishly,” Ali told the House cahired by the Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanyah.

Gen Ali said that Nkangi was the chairperson of the Uganda Land Commission but never craved for any plot of land.

“The history of our country cannot be completed without the name of late Hon Mayanja Nkangi. He made nominal contributions,” he submitted.

Roland Mugume the Deputy Chief Whip who seconded the motion said Uganda has lost an icon of truth and democrat.

“As a finance minister, Hon Nkangi oversaw the establishment of Uganda Investment Authority. His efforts were to ensure equity for all investors. Nkangi has died a frustrated man because the Uganda Investment Authority has not lived to his aims and objectives,” Mugume said.

Nkangi, 85, died on Monday morning. He will be buried on Friday in Kalungu district.
