The body of the fallen Ex-Prime Minister was on Friday taken to the Parliament for the MPs’ final respect.
A delegation composed of Speaker Rebecca Kadaga, the Clerk to Parliament Ms Jane Kibirige and the second deputy premier, Al Haj Kirunda Kivejinja, assembled at the main hall at exactly 10:00am to receive Nsibambi’s body.
Other members included Ms Kasule Lumumba, the NRM Party Secretary General, and the Government Chief Whip Ms Ruth Nankabirwa and ex-opposition leader Winnie Kiiza.
Gen Edward Katumba Wamala, the minister of State for works observed this as a key.
“I am glad his body has been received at the exact time that was planned; it would have been a huge embarrassment to force Mr Nsibambi abuse time in his death,” he said.
Gen Wamala emphasized that time keeping is the core of effective service delivery.
“He has been a teacher both in and out of class; he had those virtues and values which are good for others to emulate; a very organised person who was dedicated to service,” Gen Wamala added.
“He really loved this country,” he added.
An outstanding time keeper, Prof Nsibambi was only comparable to the late Samson Kisekka (former vice President) and former Supreme Court judge Prof George Wilson Kanyeihamba, Livingstone Okello-Okello (former Chwa MP) and Deputy Speaker, Jacob Oulanyah.
On August 26, 2011, Makerere Institute for Social Development honoured Prof Nsibambi for being an effective time keeper.
