123, landmark address


SARAH ROSEMARY NANDAWULA MULIRA was born on 4th December, 1944 at Mengo Hospital, Kampala. She was the third child of the late Eridadi Mulira and the late Rebecca Mulira but the eldest daughter with siblings Andrew (RIP), Peter, Eve (RIP), Aggrey (RIP), Ham and Nat (RIP). She was a grand-daughter of the late Nasanaeri Mulira and the late Hamu Mukasa.

When Sarah was little her parents had to move to the United Kingdom for about three years and as was typical in those days, she had to be left in the hands of her grandparents Hamu and Sarah Mukasa and also with her paternal Aunt Deborah Kiwanuka. That is where she learnt at an early age on how to work and take care of herself an attribute she has carried all her life until her very end. She started her education at a nursery school run by her Aunt/cousin Mrs Katie Kibuka before moving to Gayaza High School where she completed her Junior Secondary three (J3). She then joined the Aga Khan Secondary School where she completed her O-Levels. She then proceeded to the United States where she attended Bennet College, Buffalo, New York and New York State University. Subsequently, she moved to the United Kingdom where she joined the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London and studied History.

In the mid 1970s, Sarah came back to Uganda and worked with the National Housing Corporation as an Administrative Assistant to the Managing Director during the difficult times in Uganda. When her brother Peter came back from exile and opened his legal chambers, she joined him and worked there for a number of years. In the late, 1980s she decided to go back to the UK where she took various IT related courses and worked in various tutoring capacities.

In 2018, after the family lost our only other dear sister Eve, Sarah decided to return to Uganda for good where she had built her retirement home. She has been living here in retirement but running the affairs of her estate which also caused her many tribulations with several land resolution matters.

Socially, Sarah was an independent person a trait that has been alluded to above, she lived alone but with a wide social circle of family and friends. She was courageous and always stood by her principles. She brought happiness to many; had unconditional love for family and friends; and had a steadfast pilgrimage of faith attending Church every Sunday both here at Namirembe Cathedral and in London.

She was an ardent Tennis player, enjoyed exercising, dancing and singing.

Sarah, may the Almighty God whom you loved greatly and served receive you with his ever loving kindness and give you an eternally peaceful rest! You shall be dearly missed!
