The widow of former Democratic Party [DP] President the late John Ssebana Kizito, has also died.
DP President General Norbert Mao announced the death of Mrs. Christine Namiiro Kizito.
Namiiro died in London in the United Kingdom last night.
“It is with deep sorrow that I announce the death of Mrs. Christine Namiiro Kizito, widow of our former DP President the late John Ssebana Kizito, which has occurred in London.”
Mao added: “Our deepest sympathies to the family. The DP family stands with you at this time of grief.”
“Mama Robinah Namiiro Njuba,Mama Sarah Namutebi Smith,Mama Irene Ayekoh and Joseph Kizito with deep sorrow announce the death of their beloved sister Mrs.Christine Namiiro Ssebana (Wife of late Ssebana Kizito),” the family announced.
Ssebana Kizito died at Nakasero hospital in Kampala in July 2017 after suffering a massive stroke on the brain.
By the time he died, his wife, Ms Christine Namiiro Kizito, a former nursery school teacher he married in 1965, had not made the journey from London to nurse him.
Ssebaana’s wife Namiiro, left him in 2007 to live with his daughter in London.
Only two of his known surviving five children: Joseph Kizito – his only surviving son who works at the World Bank in New York, and Ms Ruth Kizito, were by his bedside when he breathed his last.
The other children Joyce Kizito Kajoba; Jennifer Kizito, an engineer; and Christine Kizito, a chemist who is the last born, had not yet arrived in the country.
Ssebaana’s two other sons Edward Kitaka Kizito and Job Kizito died in 2005 and 2008, respectively.
