Speaker Rt Hon Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga sadly lost her niece known as Sheila Nicole Alitwala, on Sunday. Sheila was buried yesterday at her ancestral home in Mbulamuti, Kamuli District.
Kadaga extended her gratitude to the mourners who stood with her during her difficult times.
“My niece, Sheila Alitwala Kadaga, has been laid to rest at our ancestral home in Mbulamuti, Kamuli. We’ve lost 3 relatives over the last one week. I thank the multitude of people that came to commiserate with us. May Sheila’s soul rest in eternal peace.”
Sheilah was the daughter to Speaker Kadaga’s late brother known as Kadaga Kivunike who died in the early 2000’s.
According to Celeb Patrol team research, Sheila was suffering health complications. Sources have it that this is why her aunt Kadaga put her in a day school at Muyenga High School just near her home so as to monitor her health.
However, fe days before her death, Sheila’ s health started worsening and she was admitted to International Hospital Kampala (IHK) where she was assigned a personal doctor to monitor her health.
Family members said that Sheila started improving as time went by.
According to her family members, she passed her A’ level examinations in 2019 and was meant to join Makerere University last year but due to COVID -19, she was not able to since all schools were closed.
Sheila’s brother, Timothy Kadaga said that even though she was battling health complications, Sheila’s death was so sudden.
“She started complaining of acute headache and abdominal pains on Friday night before being rushed to IHK where she was instantly admitted,” Timothy said after his sister was pronounced dead on Sunday.
