Uganda Christian University (UCU) lecturer has died after taking a second Covid-19 jab.

Okoku Obomba, 64, died on Saturday at Mengo hospital in what those close to him termed as the after-effects from a second Covid-19 jab.

He was a lecturer at the faculty of Journalism, Media and Communication.

He was first treated at Zia Angelina Health Centre in Namugongo, a Kampala suburb.

His wife Joanitta Ngabiroch Obomba told Daily Monitor that the facility [Zia Angelina Health Centre] referred him to do an echocardiogram a [test that uses ultrasound to show how your heart muscle and valves are working] at Mengo hospital where he was eventually taken.

Obomba, a veteran journalist, who previously worked with some dailies, complained of persistent headache shortly after getting his second Covid-19 jab in July.

He will be laid to rest on Thursday in Nebbi District.

He leaves behind a wife, nine children and nine grandchildren.
