The family of Yasin Kawuma, the slain driver of Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, Mr Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, has rejected Shs20 million that was reportedly donated to them by President Yoweri Museveni.
The money was taken to the family in Lusanja, Wakiso District, by singer Catherine Kusasira.
However, family members reportedly rejected the cash “because they prefer justice to money”.
“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 the post on her Facebook page.
Kawuma was killed on the eve of the violent Arua Municipality by-election by security forces who shot at Mr Kyagulanyi’s vehicle. He died instantly.
She also explained that her team intends to deliver money to the father of the former Buyende District Police Commander Mohammad Kirumira, who was killed early this month.
