City socialite Richie Kats who passed on Wednesday afternoon after being involved in a tragic accident, will be laid to rest today at his ancestral home in Jinja at a place called Kikondo at 4pm.
More information we came cross indicates that Richie Kats was the one behind the wheels when the accident occurred according to his close friend Geoffrey Tamale who was also in the same car. He further narrated to us that they were four in the Rav 4 car with Richie Kats’ Lawyer and his security man called Benson Mugisha being the other victims but Kats is the only one who perished.
“We were travelling to Masindi to handle court matters regarding some of Kat’s land wrangles when the accident occurred. The car overturned about five times and because he hadn’t put on his seat belt, he was thrown out while the rest of us remained in the car with just minor injuries.” Tamale told us.
His body was yesterday, taken to his mother’s home in Kiyunga Mukono District where the vigil was held with family members and friends turning up in big numbers. The body of the lawyer cum singer will then be transported this morning to Jinja for burial. May his soul rest in peace!
