“Kasango is a Japadhola from Tororo district and not a Mutooro. Why should he be buried at his wife’s ancestral home?” Rose Kabise, the deceased mother said.
Clashes broke out between the families of fallen Lawyer Bib Kasango and his wife’s family earlier today morning after a Requiem church service at All Saints Church Kampala.
During the service, Kasango’s relatives from the maternal and paternal were patiently waiting outside the church near an A-Plus funeral van.
These after the service stormed the van upon seeing A-plus pallbearers putting the casket in the van, they (relatives) grabbed the casket and carried it towards a waiting truck.
This aroused chaos between relatives from Kasango’s wife side and the deceased parents’ side.
The in-law side led by the widow, Nice Bitarabeho Kasango and eldest son Samora Paul Kasango tried to stop the other side from taking the casket but in vain because they were overpowered by their colleagues who immediately loaded a casked onto a waiting truck and whisked it to a yet to identify destination.
•Kasango succumbed to heartfailure in Luzira prison where he had been sentenced to 16 years over fraud, theft, forgery charges.•
The lawyer’s Parental relatives accuse the in-laws of conspiracies to bury their son at the wife’s ancestral grounds something they are against.
“Kasango is a Japadhola from Tororo district and not a Mutooro. Why should he be buried at his wife’s ancestral home?” Rose Kabise, the deceased mother said. “He is my son and has been looking after me. I, therefore, can’t allow him be buried anywhere else apart from his ancestral home.”
Immaculate Alweny, a sister to the deceased told reports that he (Kasango) was born Bob Okello but christined Kasango by one of his uncles following the death of another uncle named Kasango who died same day Okello was born.
“The day he was born is the day his uncle, an athlete called Kasango died. After the death, they named him Kasango. That name should therefore not confuse anybody because he is a Japadhola,” Immaculate Alweny said.
Parrots UG learned that Kasango will be laid to rest at Wekusi village, Karandi parish , Kirewa sub-county in Tororo district, contrary to earlier plans of funeral arrangements to bury him in Fort Portal later on Thursday.
