Renown businessman in Kampala and member of Kwagalana group, Eria Ssebunya Bugembe, a.k.a Kasiwukirira, has passed away.
He was this morning knocked by a speeding vehicle while doing his routine jogging near his home in Muyenga, an upscale Kampala suburb.
Kasiwuukira was best known for investing in a music production studio in the 1990s that enabled musicians to produce music in Uganda. Before Kasiwuukira’s 1990s music venture, Ugandan musicians had to travel to Nairobi to record their music.
He had since moved on from the music business to concentrate on making tiles and pavers through SEB Industries.
Ssebunya has also been the deputy treasurer of the Kwagalana group (an exclusive club of rich business persons in Uganda).
