“Hon Kato Lwabwama is dead. Your former MP is dead. That’s what I can say,” Bajjo announced in a short video clip he shared on his social media platforms before an administrator of Lubwama’s Twitter handle, @Kato_Lubwama.

Lubwama served as a legislator in the 10th Parliament before he lost the seat to Mr Aloysius Mukasa in the 2021 general election.

On June 9, 2017 Lubwama was among the 363 people who received medals from President Museveni during Heroes Day celebrations at St Augustine Catholic Parish Grounds in Zirobwe Sub County, Luweero District.

Lubwama, a Democratic Party (DP) member was recognized for his long time career in acting and comedy.

Shortly after getting the medal, Lubwama, a comedian turned politician said he was happy that President decided to recognize people like him (actors).

“President Museveni did not give me this medal because of politics. It was in recognition of what I have contributed to this country through acting comedy,” he said.
