Families reconcile at comedian Bitama’s burial
The two families that have been feuding over the paternity of local comedian Ssali Kasozi popularly known as Paddy Bitama on Monday reconciled at his burial, putting to rest the nine-day controversy.
As Bitama’s body was interred in the grave at the ancestral home in Mitala Maria, along Masaka Road, Richard Ssali, the heir of the late Tamale Ssali said they had buried the hatchet in order to bury the deceased.
“I am grateful that Njegula’s family has accepted us and we apologise for whatever happened. I have been with Paddy since childhood so it was hard for me to accept that he was just a half-brother.
I request all my relatives to come together because we have children to look after,” Ssali said.
Visibly overcome by grief, Peter Njegula Kasozi thanked the Government Analytical Laboratory, Uganda Police, Amarula family and Vision Group print and electronic media platforms for investigating and documenting the case until the conflict was resolved.
