“It’s so painful that we are losing very many resourceful people in this struggle. When I talk about Prince Wasajja I have to fight to hold tears back because I knew him in and out.

I don’t know why good people go and the bad people continue tormenting us,” said John Kikonyogo, FDC Deputy Spokesperson
“Prince Wasajja was a revolutionary and fighter but, revolutionaries don’t die they blossom. Whatever roles he has been playing silently or loudly we will seek to ensure that that are intensified,” eulogized Samuel M Mugenyi, deputy secretary ministry of foreign affairs at FDC.
