World mourns death of ex-US president Bush

President Yoweri Museveni has Saturday afternoon joined fellow World leaders to mourn the passing of former United States President George H.W. Bush.

Panelo then remembered the words of Bush when the latter was still alive.

"George Bush was a good friend of mine whom I admired as a man of decency and charm, an outstanding President in a hard era", Mr Hawke said.

He served as the president from 1989 to 1993 before which he was the vice-president between 1981 to 1989. "Bush, as well as to the government and the people of the United States of America". Bush's popularity rating among Americans soared to about 90 percent. Bush saying, "We waited for you".

Incumbent President Donald Trump praised Bush's sound judgement, common sense, and "unflappable" leadership for bringing wealth to the nation.

He passed away on Friday morning, a spokesperson for the family said.

"At each stage of his remarkable career, the president worked side by side with his friends, colleagues and counterparts in the United Kingdom", she said.

"After seventy-three years of marriage, George and Barbara Bush are together again now, two points of light that never dimmed, two points of light that ignited countless others with their example". He went on to easily defeat Democrat Michael Dukakis that November.

"President Bush guided our nation, and the world, to a peaceful, and victorious conclusion of the Cold War", Trump said in a Twitter post.

The former president will then lie in state in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda from Monday evening until Wednesday morning, and the public will be able to pay their respects at specific times.

Despite his success on the global stage, he was denied a second term over a weak economy, losing the 1992 election to upstart Democrat Bill Clinton, a little-known governor from Arkansas. They were married for 73 years, making them the longest married couple in presidential history.

Despite his popularity after the Gulf War, a faltering economy and a growing budget deficit eventually weakened his presidency and in 1992 Bush was defeated by Bill Clinton.

"My grandfather was the greatest man I ever knew", Mr Bush said.
