Lawyer Wilfred Murumba was buried yesterday in Kabale district.
Present at the burial was Kizza Besigye, Ingrid Turinawe, Erias Lukwago, among other notable opposition figures.
He died at Kampala hospital this week due to multiple organ failure.
He was FDC’s lawyer who intended to stand for Kabale Municipality Member of Parliament.
An advert run on Voice of Kigezi saying his daughter, Josephine Kirabo, would stand in his stead.
The FDC chairperson Kabale, Mrs Lydia Turyahumura, while appearing on Voice of Kigezi said FDC is not short of leaders.
“I have heard of an announcement, I don’t know who put it there.”
Turyahumura said they have enough members to help us get a candidate not like NRM of sole candidate.
The radio announcement supported Kirabo though Dr Pius Ruhemurana, the current Mayor and Sentaro Byamugisha of Central division are leading contenders.
