Former President Godfrey Lukongwa Binaisa has died.

The 90-year-old passed away in his sleep at his home in Kizungu Zone, a leafy, quiet area of Makindye, a suburb of Kampala.

He passed on between 3:00am and 6:00am yesterday, his nurse said. The man who led Uganda from June 20, 1979 to May 12, 1980, had diabetes.

Binaisa becomes the second former Ugandan president to die in the country. The other was Gen. Tito Okello Lutwa, who ruled from July 26, 1985 to January 26, 1986, when Predent Yoweri Museveni took over power.

Binaisa’s family, according to their lawyer Erias Lukwago, wants him buried at Kololo where two other decorated heroes, Prof. Yusuf Kironde Lule and Ignatius Musaazi, are buried. Lule was Binaisa’s predecessor and the first chairperson of the National Resistance Movement.

Godfrey Lukongwa Binaisa, the last surviving former Ugandan head of state died at his home in Kampala yesterday. He was 90. Mr Binaisa, who famously declared that the chair (power) is sweet, with the statement: Entebbe ewooma, during his 11month reign as President, died peacefully in his bed, family sources said yesterday.

“We are gutted and really depressed,” said Ms Nakalema Binaisa, a daughter to the former President. Visibly distraught by the death, Ms Nakalema struggled to hold back tears in an interview with this newspaper.
