Former Kampala mayor, Al Haji Nasser Ntege Sebaggala also known as Seya has died at the age of 72.
The news about his death was confirmed by his son, Yusuf Sebaggala Bakuuba.
“Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un we belong to Allah, and truly to Him shall we return! My beloved father Alhaji Nasser Ntege, has passed! Let’s all pray for him!” Yusuf Sebaggala Bakuuba tweeted on Saturday.
Sebaggala was two weeks ago admitted to the International Hospital Kampala (IHK) in Namuwongo where it is said he was referred to the intensive care unit after he developed complications in the stomach.
According to a member of his family, upon diagnosis, Sebaggala was found to be suffering from a condition known as intussusception, which involves part of the intestine sliding into an adjacent (part of the intestine). This condition it is said blocks movement of food and fluids through the intestines.
The condition is said to be a common cause of intestinal obstruction in infants. Although the condition is rare in adults, medics say it could occur in adults as a result of other underlying medical complications such as a tumor.
According to Bakuuba (Son), the family is going to and will notify the public about the burial arrangements.
Africa Tembelea has however since learnt that tentatively, burial date for the Ex. Kampala Mayor will be on tomorrow (Sunday), September 26, in Kisaasi.
