Friends and family of the deceased were shocked having only talked to him hours ago. A one, John Cliff Wamala revealed that he had been planning his kwanjula ceremony in a few days
“Kitalo nnyo banange. Had just talked to him 2 days ago and he told me about his Kukyala. Mukama amulamuze kisa.” Cliff wrote.
Another reporter, Herbert Kamoga praised the departed as a good friend who had been almost like a brother to him. He confirmed how indeed he was set to introduce his girlfriend.
“He was planning it and an intro later. Oh God, we pray that your angels receive him so well. Magembe has not only been a good friend but a brother. We have lost a very hard working man. May Angel’s receive you Sabiiti, till we meet again,” Kamoga said.
Sabbiiti’s social media post three days ago shows off his fiancee whom he assured his friends had decided to settle with.
Sadly, he won’t be able to kneel down asking her to marry him.
May His Soul Rest In Peace
