Preparations are underway for the burial of Water Minister Ronald Kibuule’s twins, Chimp Corps report.
The two-year-old boys drowned in a swimming pool at their home in Mbalala, Mukono district.
Family members are currently setting off to Kapeke Village, a few miles from Mbalala where the remains of the deceased will be laid to rest.
Burial will take place later in the afternoon at 4: 00pm.
Amongst the VIPs at Kibuule’s home are former Minister of Finance Syda Bbumba and Gender Ministry Permanent Secretary, Mr Pius Bigirimana.
Family members, friends and relatives held a vigil at Kibuule’s home on Tuesday night.
A visibly devastated Kibuule could not hide his pain.
“We are broken,” he told colleagues.
“We can’t believe this happened,” he added.
Kibuule’s wife, Fortunate, was inconsolable too. “I had just left the home and in a few minutes I was informed the kids were no more.”
The kids were playing in the compound when they drowned in the pool.
Blame was also put on the minister for not constructing a fence for the pool as a safety measure.
Police are holding four workers who were at Kibuule’s house when the kids drowned.
