DEPUTY Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Annet Anita Among (AAA) will for the rest of her life not forget two very important moments about the life of fallen Bank of Uganda’s Governor Prof. Emmanuel Tumusiime Mutebile;
One, when she with her two naked eyes saw such a powerful man kneeling down to greet Mama Miria Kalule Obote, the wife of former President Dr. Apollo Milton Obote and another incident when, “As a young intern at Centenary Bank Gulu branch, Prof. Mutebile who had visited the Bank recommended me for promotion after watching me go about my work.”
“On his advice,” Deputy Speaker told mourners yesterday night, “I was promoted to the level of a supervisor and he became my inspiration in the banking sector. Since then, my life has never been the same, see where i am today. He identified me, he moulded my future. Thank you Prof. Mutebile, you have been such a great down to earth man, i will never forget you.” Noted Rt. Hon. Anita Among, saying that is the kind of a person country has lost!
She revealed this yesterday night at the deceased’s home in Kololo, Kampala, where she had gone to join the relatives and friends of the late Prof. Mutebile to condole with Mama Betty and the children.
Governor Mutebile passed on Sunday morning at 5:30am from a Nairobi Hospital after a long struggle for his life. Born in 1949, today January 27th, Mutebile would be celebrating his 73rd Birth day!
On Mutebile’s humility Madam Anita last night told mourners that, “One time Mama Miria Obote was sick and I went with my son to visit her. We were shocked to see Prof. Mutebile kneeling down to greet Mama Miria. Humility, honesty and integrity are what defined his life as a servant of this Country.”
Deputy Speaker, therefore directed Government Chief Whip Thomas Tayebwa to make sure that the official residence of Governor Bank of Uganda in Kololo is given to the family in honour of Prof. Mutebile’s integrity.
She prayed to God to judge him with mercy and promised to always stand with the family wherever they would need her help.
