Ambassador’s Daughter, Angel Kirabo, Dies

Kirabo passed on Thursday evening

Kampala residents woke up Friday to the shocking death of Angel Kirabo, pharm a devout Catholic and daughter of former Ugandan Ambassador to Vatican, try Vincent Kirabokyamaria.

An autopsy is expected today to shed more light on the cause of Kirabo’s death.

However, family friends say she took a wrong malaria drug she was allergic to, leading to convulsions and death.

“It’s with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my friend, our friend, the friend of all those in need. Our member, whom many of you shall remember for her lovingly hilarious late night stories about her two boys, Coco and Vuvu, Angel B. Kirabo has been called to higher glory,” said Moses Kinobe, a close friend of the deceased.

“Angel passed away yesterday evening, after a very short illness. I cannot give you more details than these, for I don’t have them yet,” he added.

Kirabo, who was in her early 40s, founded and ran the charity, Seeds of Hope.

At her home, recalled Kinobe, she practiced an open door policy.

“Kids from the community, including adolescents, would walk in and out of her house, pick anything, and stride out, at anytime. When she got some money, or supplies, she’d go giving it all out to the community she felt was more in need. You’d never find a heart as big as Angel’s.”

Kirabo, whose family resides in Muyenga, a Kampala suburb, is survived by two boys.
