Fallen Islamic scholar Sheikh Anas Kaliisa, who died on Wednesday under mysterious circumstances, is set to be buried on Friday November 6th, 2020, according to family sources.
Sheikh Kaliisa, who was the elder brother of NBS TV boss Kin Kariisa and used to host a popular talk-show known as ‘Ensi Nebyayo’ on the same TV station, passed away at him shortly after returning home from office, although he had not reported any illness.
On Thursday, his body was taken to Kibuli Mosque for Salat-al-Janazah (Islamic prayer for the dead), which was attended by several politicians, among them presidential contenders Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu aka Bobi Wine, Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde, Rtd. Gen. Mugisha Muntu, among other religious and political leaders.
This website has since established from close family sources that after the prayers at Kibuli Mosque, Sheikh Kaliisa’s body was later taken to Wandegeya most for more prayers, as mourners prepared to transport the remains to Nyakahita, Rwengoma, Ruhaama, Ntungamo District for burial.
