The Muslim Center for Justice and Law in their eulogy, described Ssakka as a humble, devoted advocate who was friendly to many.
“Surely, Allah takes what is His, and what He gives is His, and to all things He has appointed a time. So have patience and be rewarded. May Allah magnify your reward, and make perfect your bereavement, and forgive your departed.”
The deceased will be laid to rest today (Sunday) at his ancestral home in Butambala district.
