Former President of Uganda and the only surviving Ex-President Godfrey Lunkongwa Binaisa died Thursday Morning from his Makindye home due to Cardiac Arrest. The former President who died at the age of 90 was appointed the President of Uganda on June 20, 1979 and removed on 13 May, 1980. The Presidential Commission took charge until the December 1980 general elections which were won by Apollo Milton Obote's Uganda People's Congress.

The 1980 results were disputed by the current President Yoweri Museveni who launched a guerilla rebellion, that led him to the presidency in 1986.

In the year 2004, the former President married Tomoko Yamamoto that he got off the internet. The marriage lasted for only a year. Government is now going to take over the burial arrangements and they will accord him a state funeral.

Binaisa's and other then patriots contribution can not be underestimated in building Uganda at that chaotic time. May God rest his soul! Sam Rutahindwa

Rest in peace muzee Binaisa QC. The late president studied with my late father Dr Eria Muwanga Babumba at King's College Buddo. They were really good friends and later both served our country in the post-independent Uganda government. Let us remember them and not forget them for the contribution they made to nation building.
