President Yoweri Museveni has contributed sh10m towards the burial expenses for the son of the Woman Member of Parliament-elect for Iganga district, Brenda Asinde Suubi.
 
The condolence message was handed over to Asinde and her husband, Abdu Rahuman Sebukaire during the burial of Subula Sebukaire Kaguta at their home in Busei village,Nakalama sub-county in Iganga.
 
The baby passed on at Rubaga Hospital shortly after being admitted with pneumonia.
 
The condolence message was handed over to the bereaved family by Iganga NRM chairperson, Hajji Abubaker Walubi.
 
Kaguta was today laid to rest amidst tears from mourners who turned up.
 
It was a tense moment as Asinde fainted after her baby was put into the grave.
 
In his condolence message, Museveni, currently on a working visit to New York said he had learnt of the unsudden death of the minor he carried during his recent campaign trip to Iganga.
 
He appealed to the family to remain strong during such hard times.
 
The two-week old Kaguta was born just a week to the by-elections of the Iganga Woman Member of Parliament.
 
Asinde who was the NRM party flag-bearer was forced to campaign just four hours after giving birth at Iganga Hospital.
 
The regional Khadi of Iganga, Sheikh Sinani Muwanika, who led prayers for the deceased urged Muslims to always be prepared for death all the time by praying five times a day besides giving out to the needy in mosques and on streets.
 
Butaleja resident district commissioner, Gulume Balyeino, said the death is a big blow to the family who had just started celebrating the victory in the tightly contested elections.
