A requiem mass has been organised at Lubaga Cathedral for Dr Kibuuka Perigrine, the deceased former head teacher of Namilyango College school.
The Requiem Mass at Lubaga cathedral will take place on Wednesday at 11.00am.
After that, there will be an official vigil in his residence in Magere on Gayaza Road.
Burial is Thursday at Magere starting with mass 12.00 noon.
Kibuuka died following an operation three weeks back as he was suffering arthritis.
A teacher of Literature in English, Dr. Kibuuka joined Namilyango College in 1966 as a student in Senior Five. He went back seven years later as an English language and Literature teacher.
Kibuuka was the school head teacher between 1986 and 2001. He was a very principled man who stood by his word.
On Tuesday, 19 October 2021, Parliament paid tribute to Kibuuka for his distinguished service.
In his career, he also served at St Peters Nsambya for four years.
He went on to serve as the first university secretary of Muteesa I University and currently lectures graduate students at Makerere University. Kibuuka is a member of the Law Reform Commission.
In an earlier interview, Kibuuka explained how he managed to succeed in his work.
“I was predictably unpredictable because I would listen to everyone and make a decision. The first teacher I got rid of was my neighbour and we were of the same clan and tribe. People were shocked that I had sacked him,” he disclosed.
He said his yardsticks were clear; work, output and devotion to duty. If one dodged lessons, Kibuuka had nothing to do but reprimand them.
