The family of the Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga are mourning the demise of their beloved one Sheila Nicole Kadaga, who  passed away Monday, after succumbing to a disease similar to COVID-19.

According to close family sources,  Nicole passed away at International Hospital a few days back, where she was admitted with symptoms like  breathing complications, headache, running stomach and vomiting, which are similar to those of those of the deadly COVID-19  pandemic.

Although medics at IHK are yet to reveal details of her postmortem, Sheila’s sudden demise has left very many Ugandans, especially those who got to know her at Uganda Christian University and from other places  so heartbroken.
