Government has expressed interest in renaming one of the Capital city’s avenues after the business phylanthropist the late Dr. Alhajj Bulaimu Muwanga Kibirige (BMK).
It was revealed on Wednesday afternoon by State minister for public service Uganda Mary Mugasa who also said her commendation to rename the avenue after the fallen tycoon was fully barked by parliament.
“Unlike other successful business people in this country, Dr Alhajji BMK shared his trade secrets especially in his book entitled My story of building a fortune in Africa,” Kampala Central MP Muhammad Nsereko reacted.
Aruu County MP Christopher Komakech also stressed the need to recognize out standing people in the country while they were still alive and that the 11th parliament should adopt the culture.
On Monday during BMK’s burial, deputy speaker Anitah Among made similar statements suggesting that one of the streets in Kampala be renamed after the deceased. Other Legislators also eulogized the late BMK for his humanity.
If renamed, Wampewo will become among the very few Avenues in upscale Kampala to be renamed after a Ugandan.
