Arthur Basalirwa, a former student of Makerere University Business School posted a screenshot from a WhatsApp chat, dedicated to a one ‘D” and it read: “Hi D. You will always ask yourself if you had sent me a more meaningful text. These are your last words to me. Goodbye D.”

From the screenshots of the WhatsApp chat he shared, Basalirwa seemed to have undergone a rough breakup with his girlfriend. His friends say that he was planning his marriage, after visiting his fiance’s parents at a traditional Kukyala ceremony.

Hours before that, Basalirwa posted to his Whatsapp a status note saying; “I am sorry but it’s too late, I’m sorry, too much weighing on me I don’t wanna live to see another day.”

However, these cries for help went unnoticed, with only a simple ‘bambi’ as a comment from one of his friends, until hours later when others learnt about his sudden death.

It is however not yet clear how Basalirwa ended his life, but friends have taken to Facebook to pay tribute to him.

R.I.P Arthur. It has taken me a while to believe he is gone. I wish I had read this sign. I ain’t relenting. This ain’t yielding. The grief, the shock… I’m not even sure if my words are making sense… I saw myself in the slithering darkness, the lull of sleep, the memes, how can you kill pain that is only felt? How can you fight something you can’t see?

There’s just 2 people I want to tag here. I ain’t hoping that you understand. It’s just that you are the way you are. He is gone. As in dead. Deep soul, limited expressions, one of those rare gems I’d talk to without a mask.

I may not not know all truths but what went on his head was something intricately interwoven…memories, wishes, desire to live, the cynical, the inane, even the hilarious. The anger and fear creeping through and over my mind as I type this is triggering.

Basalirwa Abby Arthur , gone too soon. Gone too suddenly. You guy. Black is my favourite color but I’ve never worn it to a funeral. Is that my last remark? Maybe. I’ve not said everything I want to say. But then again y’all saying bye too soon.

Basalirwa’s friends have taken to Facebook to share photos from his burial while mourning his death.
