A Mother’s Grief As Mourners Flock Sera’s Memorial Service
Kampala’s top celebrities on Thursday morning broke down in grief as departed young music star Sarah Nampijja alias Sera Salai’s mother described the deceased as the most fun, sweetest and cheerful daughter ever.
Mrs Kakooza is seen leading mourners at the funeral of her 21-year-old daughter, whose life was tragically cut short on Tuesday following an ulcer attack on her way for a burial ceremony in Masaka.

Sera’s white coffin was mounted with flowers and after the function; the pallbearer carried the casket out of the Church ahead of the burial due today at the musician’s home in Nansana, Kampala.
“Sera was extremely beautiful and jolly. She is all I had. Her life brought warmth, love and satisfaction to my heart. I am really devastated and lonely without Sera,” said Mrs Kakooza as WBS presenter MCkenzie broke down in tears.

“My heart was ripped apart when I got a telephone call that Sera had died. It was the most heartbreaking call I have ever received in my entire life. I could not believe that nothing could be done by doctors to save her,” sobbed Mrs Kakooza as tears rolled down her cheeks uncontrollably.
"I appreciate the hundreds, perhaps thousands of prayers from all of you. I'm so grateful to you guys and her managers for choosing to give my lovely daughter such a befitting sendoff.”
