The service lasted for at least three hours due to the outstanding person he was.
Engineer Zikusooka was even talked about by the current US President Obama during the campaigns. "There is a young man on my campaign whose grandfather lives in Uganda. He is 81 years old and has never experienced true democracy in his lifetime.
During the reign of Idi Amin, he was literally hunted and the only reason he escaped was thanks to the kindness of others and a few good-sized trunks. And on the night of the Iowa caucuses, that 81-year-old man stayed up until five in the morning, huddled by his television, waiting for the results. The world is watching what we do here."
There will be another service in Bugembe Cathedral in Jinja today where he was installed as Dean of Christ, a non stipendiary Priest. He will be buried on 3 February, 2012 at Namungaalwe in Iganga District.
