She was admitted a few weeks ago and suffered several months of untold pain.

She was first admitted at Case Hospital in Kampala where two of her toes were removed in March.

President Museveni visited her in hospital and had promised to pay for her medication abroad.

Survived by seven children- three males and four females, she witnessed her son Mumbere being torn out of his Buhikira Royal Palace in Kasese town on November 26, 2016 in a UPDF raid that left over 100 people dead.

He is currently under house arrest at his Muyenga residence in Kampala.
