Kampala: Renowned City business-woman Alexis Jubilee Atwooki, the proprietor of Colville street, Kampala based Breeze Tours & Travel and Breeze Serenity & Spa has lost her elder brother, James Byaruhanga, a doctor based in South Africa.
James Sight Byaruhanga Atwooki was born to the Late Solomon Atwooki Jubilee and Ms. Beatrice Bacwa Kijukyo Amooti, on 12, September 1952, the first child for both of them.
He rested on 3, March 2021, at Hibiscus Private Hospital in Port Shepstone, Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa, after a gallant battle with heart disease for a few years.
He is survived by his wife Rose, 7 children (3 boys and 4 girls), 9 grandchildren, numerous sisters and brothers as well as nieces and nephews.
James was a highly educated and experienced Clinical Lab Technologist, having studied at Makerere University, The Royal Free Hospital, London UK, and other prestigious institutions in Africa.
He began his career at Mulago Hospital and then joined a Lab establishment in Nairobi in 1980. His next
stint was at Holy Cross Hospital, Eastern Cape South Africa in 1985, where he worked in different capacities till his retirement in 2016, 31 years later.
A very sociable and easy-going spirit, James was a loving husband, who deeply loved his children and took pride in being hands-on with all aspects of their lives.
To family and friends, he will be fondly remembered for being a pillar in his community in Holy Cross, a place he came to call his second home, as well as an integral member of the Nyakabwa Family in Uganda. Above all, we shall all remember his hearty laughter and the joy he spread wherever he went.
