Kampala: It is a horrific moment for the Speaker of the Parliament of Uganda after losing her niece Sheila Kadaga just three months after the death of her only brother Paul Kadaga.
Sheila’s death comes after the death of Paul Kadaga, the speakers’ brother who died on December 8 last year while in preparations to contest for the Kamuli Municipality MP seat in the 2021 general elections.
TheSpy Uganda has since learnt that Sheila passed on yesterday night at International Hospital Kampala [IHK] where she had been admitted for over a week with some breathing complications.
The young girl was in preparations to join Makerere University following her completion of Advanced Level exams in 2019 from Muyenga High School in Kampala.
The deceased, and outgoing Uganda Christian University Guild President Timothy Kadaga Kivunike have been the only two surviving children of the late Kadaga Kivunike – a brother to the speaker who died in the early 2000s. The two have been raised under the speaker’s guardianship since.
Joseph Kadaga, a cousin to the deceased confirmed the death and described Sheila as a very ” welcoming and joyful young girl” that will dearly be missed by the Kadaga family.
We have also learnt that she will be laid to rest at the family’s ancestral grounds in Mbulamuti, Buzaaya County in Kamuli District on a date yet to be confirmed according to family.
May Her Soul Rest In Peace!
