Nkoyoyo succumbed to cancer of the throat at Kampala Hospital on Friday last week.

A funeral service was held at All Saints Catheral, Nakasero on Sunday, during which President Yoweri Museveni said Nkoyoyo had fought a good fight and kept his faith.

He also praised the widow, Ruth Nkoyoyo.

"First of all, I want to praise the spirit of Maama Ruth. Some people complicate life by being miserable and they affect everybody. Since we are all going to die, why make a fuss when one dies, especially when the person who had died (Nkoyoyo) has done a lot?

"It is okay to mourn because such a person could have done more," President Museveni said.
