Busoga is mourning the sudden death of Naome Bamwoze, the wife to Busoga retired Bishop, Cyprian Kikunyi Bamwoze. Naome, 68, according to Kamuli LC5 Chairman, Tomas Kategere, died on Thursday morning in Mulago Hospital-Kampala, where she was rushed for treatment on Tuesday.

The cause of death, by Press time was yet to be established however  reliable sources at Bamwoze’s home in Nakakabala village in Mbulamuti, Kamuli district said Naome  encountered a severe attack of  high blood pressure.

 

Bamwoze, 83, who is also weak after some illnesses and advanced age and utmost grief, could not be reached for comment.

Terming the death as big blow to the life of the retired Bishop , Kategere said it was unfortunate because Naome has been at his bed- side whenever he fell sick.

 Crowds of mourners including the Anglican congregation, relatives, local and district leaders thronged the Bishop’s home, where a wake was erected after the sad news broke.

The couple met twenty eight years ago before tying the knot in Bugembe.  Sources told The New Vision that both were single after their spouses had died.

Describing Naome a primary teacher s an intelligent and tolerant lady, many wondered how she managed to prevail with Bamwoze, said to be a very principled, difficult man.

By Press time, information about the burial was still scanty as the organizers, including the senior clergy of the Church of Uganda were still closed in crucial meetings.
