Anthony Kerali, Associate Professor in Makerere University was yesterday afternoon found dead in bed at his house in Kampala’s upscale Kololo neighbourhood.
The death was confirmed by Vice Chancellor Professor Barnabas Nawangwe who payed him a last tribute:
“We shall remember him as a dedicated and diligent servant of the university and a person with a positive attribute”
Ms Betty Kyakuwa, the spokesperson of Makerere University’s College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology, said last night that a nephew found Prof Kerali dead at about 3pm after he failed to wake up.
In one of his last tweets on February 17, 2021, Prof Kerali said (5:50pm): « Someone at the golf club asked me an intriguing question. A former Justice of the Supreme Court. How many Northerners still live in Kololo? Sounded casual. But the point was noted. Only Dr Obote family, Dr Martin Aliker, and me. Why? Incredible simple question that exposes a lot. »
The body was taken for autopsy at Mulago Hospital, pending funeral arrangements. Kerali hailed from Nebbi District.
