Photos: Abiriga accorded state funeral


Unusual among the Islamic norms, Ibrahim Abiriga’s body arrived at Old Kampala mosque in company of Police and funeral managers in a coffin.

According to a senior leader at the national mosque, circumstances forced such to happen but confirmed that he will not be buried in it for he was a practicing moslem. He also pointed out the issue where several die from abroad and brought back in coffins since bodies are only allowed on plane when properly packaged.

According to the Islam norms, Abiriga’s body has not been opened for public viewing and as well laying of wreaths.
