One of the last standing Ugandan judges who never feared speaking truth to power whenever occasion arose has gone to be with the Lord.
Court of Appeal Justice Kenneth Kakuru, 65, was pronounced and confirmed dead by Judiciary spokesperson Jamson Karemani, Tuesday morning.
He had been admitted to Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi.
He has been battling ailment related to cancer.
This even forced him to request for retirement from the judiciary in 2021 before reaching retirement age of 70 to manage his health.
Kakuru was the founder and Senior Partner of the law firm of Kakuru & Company Advocates, a Kampala-based law firm, established in 1987.
He established a reputation as an environmental rights attorney and an expert in public interest litigation.
He founded and at the time of his death still served as a non-executive director of Greenwatch Uganda, an environmental advocacy non-profit.
In May 2013, Kakuru was appointed directly to the Court of Appeal.
He retired in 2021 due to poor health.
Kakuru was married to the late Winnie Ikiriza Kakuru, from 12 September 1987 until her death in 2009, and together they are the parents of three children, Sama, Tracy and Rose.
On 14 January, 2012, he married Charity Nankunda Kakuru, his current wife.
He has also left behind seven months old twin sons.
It is not clear whether they are for Charity or another woman.
