"The political journey we walked in support of our late husband's career. We traversed Maragoli land, far and wide. We walked hand-in-hand and stood shoulder-to-shoulder, bearing the heavy responsibility of building a legacy," Mama Rosebella said in her condolence message at the funeral, read by her son Geoffrey Kegode.
