Sad news reaching us this evening indicating that the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Aitwala Kadaga ‘s niece Sheila Kadaga has passed on , about three months after the death of the former’s only surviving brother.
Paul Kadaga, the politician’s brother died on December 8 last year as he was intending to contest for the Kamuli Municipality MP seat in the 2021 general elections.
“Sheila Kadaga passed on last night at International Hospital Kampala [IHK] where she had been admitted for over a week with some breathing complications” – close source revealed.
She was set to join Makerere University later this year having sat her Advanced Level exams in 2019 from Muyenga High School in Kampala.
The deceased and outgoing Uganda Christian University Guild President Timothy Kadaga Kivunike has 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.
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.
