Ibulaimu was born in Mumabrembo Mubusoni, Burundi, on May 20, 1942, to the late Saulo Nkunzurwanda and Miriam Ntabajana.

He was married to the love of his life, Elizabeth Abwooli Kakoma. They were happily married for 37 years.

Their children Eva, David, Sarah, Debbie, Diana, Gene, Laura, Itonde, and Eseza will miss him dearly.

He has had more than 20 years of post-DVM experience concentrating on immunodiagnosis, immunoprophylaxis and immunobiology of hemotropic and other tropical diseases of man and domestic animals.

His linguistic facility has been an incomparable gift. He helped establish a Kinyarwanda-Swahili-English Web-based dictionary to which he was to contribute Kinyarwanda and Swahili scientific terminology.

He leaves a sister Regina and her children, Jonathan, Daudi Kaliisa, Grace, Florence, James, Margaret, Beth and Agnes; his brother Stanley and his children Melda, Wilberforce, Christine, Patrick, Ephrance.

And a great immediate and extended family, from Imani, the idolized granddaughter, and to the host of nieces and nephews who have been nurtured by their uncle's touch, wisdom, and a unique father's love.

He was preceded in death by his sister, Mukamusoni, whose children are Muzungu Kalengera, Binja.

Donations are being accepted for a primary school that Dr. Kakoma built in the village where he grew up in Miseebe, Uganda. The school has been in existence since 1987 and educates an average of 630 students from the region annually.
