"Maintain order in the city, respect the road laws and also maintain cleanliness in hospitals so that the sick do not contract secondary infections"
The family of Paul and Allen Kagina have asked Ugandans to respect the road regulations to avoid reckless driving that leads to accidents, this was during a funeral service of Timothy Musherure a relative to Kagina

During his funeral service at Namirembe Cathedral, Musherure was described as a hardworking, humble, kind and humorous man. "I am soliciting for prayers for strength.
In our family, it was Timothy who loved harmony, humility, and tolerance in all situations. 26 years back when I had heart surgery, he was a pillar in my life saying that I would get back my strength," said Paul Kagina, a brother.
Kagina called upon people to maintain order in the city, respect the road laws and also maintain cleanliness in hospitals so that the sick do not contract secondary infections.
"I was told by the doctor that Timothy was about to be discharged but after a few days he got an infection from the hospital which lead to his death," said Kagina. With tears flowing down her cheeks, Suzanne Kazoora Musherure, the widow said the judge who convicted and sentenced her husband directly killed him.
"If it was not for the action of the judge, he would not have been at the high court where he was knocked from. The judge's act indirectly killed him. First, he was convicted for the crime he never committed. he was a good person," she said.
His children could not hold back the tears as they remembered the good times they have shared with their father. "Dad our lives changed the day you passed on but you were a great father who always cracked jokes, you always put a smile on my face.
Dad, you will always have a special place in our hearts," said Alexander, the son. During the service, the boda-boda cyclists who gave him first aid were appreciated and they had an opportunity to greet the first lady.
