Susan Namatovu: It is over for our brother. He really worked for his soul wat about you? This gives us a lesson to learn. We must get back to our enternal father but how. Mukajanga healed counseled preached praised and worshiped the lord all in the name of God but he is now gone. People of God let's work for our souls such that the grave is not our home but heaven.

Mackie Peace:  I surely can't believe it. But then death exists. Brothers and sisters let's not mourn for his death because he did all his work on earth. He has always been there for whoever needed him now it is our turn. He doesn't desire our mourning but rather our prayers. May his soul rest in eternal peace
