Death hit the house of the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga following the death of her niece Sheila Kadaga, daughter of the only surviving brother of the Speaker, Paul Kadaga, the politician who died on December 8 last year as he was intending to contest for the Kamuli Municipality MP seat in the 2021 general elections.
Sheila passed away on February 28th 2021 at International Hospital Kampala [IHK] where she had been admitted for over a week with some breathing complications.
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.
She will be laid to rest at the family’s ancestral grounds in Mbulamuti, Buzaaya County in Kamuli District on Wednesday in Mbulamuti village, Kamuli district.
The Uganda Christian University (UCU) community is mourning the death of Sheila Nicole Alitwala Kadaga, a sister to the institution’s immediate past Guild President and son to Speaker Rebecca Kadaga- Timothy Kadaga. The two siblings are foster children to Rebecca Kadaga.
“No words, no words can explain how I feel. Nothing will ever fill this void. I now have the second hole in my heart,” Timothy Kadaga wrote as he broke the news.
The family revealed that Sheila has been an industrious young lady, an inspiration to many family members and friends.
“My hardwork has been driven by you. Whenever I reach home, you have always smiled,” Timothy mentioned as he spoke of his unending love for his sister.
Kenneth Agaba Amponda, the current Guild President described the death as shocking news to the student community.
