Former Barclays bank boss buried

NTUNGAMO- Former Presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi has asked Ugandans to embrace the spirit of true love and friendship that is long lasting other than what he calls share weather friendship that is only focused on season a spirit he says is undermining development.

Speaking during the burial of a former banker Mr James Katono who passed on on Sunday aged 105 at Katinda Rweikiniro Sub County, Mababazi said he has had a big test of most of his friends just being there for a season with only a few being reliable.

He described the late as a person who treasured friendship mentored many including him and Prime minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda in all life time activities and was highly resilient that everything he did had to be finished before he passed on.

Mbabazi further called on citizens to respect the rules set by health experts in combating COVID-19 if the fight against the pandemic is to be won. The latter was his nephew in a relationship.

Preaching during the service organized for his burial, the south Ankole diocese Bishop Rt Rev. Nathan Ahimbisibwe asked mourners to do good in life so they can be described as successful even at their death. He further called on children to respect and love their parents if they are to live a successful life.

Katono was a Bank Manager at Barclays bank Uganda from the late 1950s to early 1980s after serving as a postman for several years. Following his retirement he became a strong businessman and farmer which inspired many.

His children and other speakers who included former Ntungamo district chairman John Wycliffe Karazarwe described him as a loving father, a friend to many and teacher of saving and money economics who taught them never to treasure money as a resource but what it gives. He is survived by 7 children.
