Dear Community Members and friends, On behalf of Mr. Christopher Serunjogi Kawule of Kazo Kyaddondo and his family, it is with great sadness that we inform you of the sad news of the passing of his son, our brother and friend, Isaac Semuwemba Simwogerere Serunjogi. Mr. Serunjogi passed away this Wednesday, January 25, 2012 in Roosevelt Hospital, New York at the age of 52 years after a long battle with cancer.

Isaac Serunjogi attended Kitovu Senior Secondary School in Masaka and is remembered for his unique talent in the School band and School Drama Society. He was also a member of the Serumaga International Theatre Group. He came to the United States in 1976, after completing “O” level and attended Michigan State University. He has been a successful business man dealing in real estate in New York and Chicago at the time of his demise.

He is survived by his father who currently lives in Dallas Texas, United States, his mother Rosemary Namutamba Serunjogi in Kazo Kyaddondo, his sisters Jessie Namakula Mureeba, of Dallas Texas, Alex Nabatanzi Fry of Melbourne, Australia, Christine Mayambala of Atlanta, Grace Namakula Kyanjo and Susan Katibe Nabatanzi of Kampala Uganda and young brothers Alfred Katamba Serunjogi and Mutyaba of Kampala, Uganda.

Isaac Serunjogi has been a member of Ggwangamujje NY/NJ Inc. and a strong devotee of the Buganda Kingdom and Ssabasajja Kabaka all his life. Indeed Buganda has lost a great son. For those of you, who knew Isaac Serunjogi, in person, knew him as a very generous, nice and sincere human being. We thank God for his life and pray that his soul rests in eternal peace. And, may the Almighty God keep and strengthen his family and all of us as we grieve the loss of our loved one.

Arrangements are underway to take him back to Uganda to rest in his ancestor’s burial place. There will be Olumbe this coming Saturday, January 28, 2012 at Uganda House, New York starting at 2.00pm and viewing, service and celebration of his life on the following Saturday, February 4, 2011.

While we are sorting out the financial logistics, please send any messages of condolences and/or contributions (Mabugo – Check should be written to Jessie Mureeba) to:  c/o Michael Muganga, 931 Red Road, Teaneck NJ 07666 or bring mabugo in Lumbe at Uganda House, New York.
