Untold grief has engulfed the entire Tooro Kingdom following the untimely demise of Princes Ruth Cox Kugonza Amooti, who was a renowned member of the royal family and a formidable businesswoman.
According to close family sources, Princess Kugonza breathed her last on Tuesday morning after she succumbed to the deadly Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Princess Kugonza, who was a darling to many Batooro and several top government officials, among them Gen. Salim Saleh, made headlines last month after she got married to her long-time fiancé Larry Richard Abala.
The couple’s wedding set social media on fire after photos of their introduction-cum-wedding ceremony were posted online.
Sadly, the middle-aged woman who was seen slowly dancing with her handsome, much younger lover, has since gone to meet her creator.
Announcing her death, journalist Andrew Mwenda, who is said to be her relative wrote on social media thus; “On Sunday we lost a cousin, Margret Kanyiginya to Covid-19. This morning, we have just lost yet another cousin, Cox, to Covid.”
It should be noted that Mwenda lost another family member last month to COVID-19.
However, it is not yet clear whether Princess Kugonza and her hubby Abala had a child or children together.
