Social media this week has been abuzz with reports on how singer Catherine Kusasira was distributing money to the families of the slain Bobi Wine driver Yasin Kawuma and former Buyende DPC Mohammed Kirumira.
The singer said she was touched by the family’s plight after watching one of Kawuma’s widows crying out to president Museveni on TV. She then asked the president to help out and of course, Jjjaja dished out Shs20 million for both the bereaved families.
“I was touched by the family situation according to what I saw on TV and as a parent who has seen the president help before, in my status it’s the little I could do. You all have a right to hold a different perception about this, many may turn it political but mine is from a parental perspective no matter the differences and minded more about the children and school status because as a parent too, the president was willing to help beyond even Shs20 million,” she said in a post on her Facebook page.
It was quite interesting seeing the singer call for press conferences as she gave out the money to the scrambling recipients.
But even more interesting is how social media has reacted to Kusasira’s newly-found generous heart and ‘money bags’ status.
Here are some reactions to the singer’s presidential condolence messages we found online.
