Deputy Speaker, Thomas Tayebwa: Kigezi, Uganda and Africa have lost a pillar and business icon

Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Thomas Tayebwa, has described fallen businessman, Apollo Nyegamehe as a pillar and business icon.

Nyegamehe alias Aponye died in a nasty accident last night in Ntungamo, Western Uganda.

By press time, his body was still at Itojo for a postmortem.

Deputy Speaker’s statement on Aponye’s death

Mr. Apollo Nyegamehe’s death has hit us really hard! Since last night when we received the sad news and converged at his home in Lubowa, we have not come to terms with the tragedy. Commonly known as Aponye, the astitute businessman has been a mentor and father figure to many of us. We met in the scorching sun of Juba in 2008 and since then he has held my hand not only in business but in everything I have achieved. To the wife Mrs. Vangi Nyegamehe, the children led by Harold Nyegamehe, Brodis, Patience, Arvin, Lynette, Peter, Yvonne, Kevin, Jackie, Martina, Annet, kindly accept my heartfelt condolences. Kigezi, Uganda and Africa have lost a pillar and business icon. I want to thank our friends in Ntungamo who rushed at the scene and helped save other occupants of the car. To the medical team at Itojo Hospital, we can’t thank you enough. Rest in Peace Mzee. Mother Mary, whom you prayed to everyday will continue interceding for you
