Aga Khan Envoy Amin Mawji’s Tribute to Late Amirali Karmali (Mzee Mukwano)

By Amin Mawji, Diplomatic Representative of the Aga Khan Development Network.

The nation lost a loyal citizen this week. The passing of Amirali Karmali – Mzee Mukwano as he was affectionately known – marks a sad moment for the nation and for the multitudes of people whose lives were touched by this remarkable man.
Karmali began life with the most humble of beginnings. As a truck driver, his early life included periods spent largely on the roads across Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Burundi. It was a time when life may have been simple, but the terrain was rough.
Mr-Amirali-Karmali-2ndL-meets-The-Aga-Khan-RThe Mukwano family’s generosity, under the patriarchy of Mzee Mukwano, is legendary. I know from my first-hand experience of their support to many of the development programmes of the Aga Khan Development Network and their broad support to many communities across Uganda. It is a tradition that his children, including Alykhan and Rukhsana, carry on with grace.

Our world is a poorer place for his passing on. May his soul rest in peace.
