KAMULI - The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga who is also the Kamuli Woman Member of Parliament (MP) on Saturday (November 14, 2020) suspended her campaigns following the death of Rehema Watongola.
Watongola was the National Resistance Movement (NRM) MP representing Kamuli Municipality and died on Saturday morning after being rushed to Mulago hospital for treatment.
"Owing to the sudden death of Rehema Tiwuwe Watongola, I have suspended my campaigns until further notice. May her soul rest in eternal peace," Kadaga stated.
By press time burial plans were not yet out but given the fact that she was a Muslim, sources noted that there would be no delays.
Kadaga is defending her seat against Salaam Musumba of the Forum for Democratic Change.
