PARIS: Another Ugandan Found Dead In Diaspora
Another Ugandan has died under mysterious circumstances – this time in Paris, France.
Eugene Kalule Ssempa, one of the most prominent members of the Ugandan community in France, was found dead in his house on Friday.
According to information available, Ssempa is well known to those who were at Kings’ College Buddo during Idi Amin Dada’s reign of terror.
The cause of Ssempa’s death is still unclear but it’s highly believed he could have collapsed to death following a brain accident or a heart attack, according to UAH Forumist G Kkolokolo.
The death comes hardly a week after a one Susan Kideni alias “Sheillah Nabweteme” was found dead in her house in the city of Dallas, Texas.
Her body is still at the Medical Examiner’s office in Dallas.
Nabweteme was a registered nurse who lived at Carrollton community, Hillside Texas.
According to Captain Lukiah Mulumba, US Air Force, Nabweteme had lived in the US for 17 years, the final 6 years of which were resided in Dallas, Texas.
Meanwhile, Ssempa will be missed by relatives and neighbours for he knew how to live decently and to go on amicably with everyone.
A son of the late Amos Kalule Ssempa, former Minister both at Mmengo and in the Obote I Central Government, Ssempa lived a simple life.
“His simple ways never betrayed his rich and very wealthy background and was always very cautious and extremely prudent on political issues,” recounts Kkolokolo.
A very large cross-section of Ugandans including the Ambassador and top eminent personalities of the Ugandan community has assembled in Paris to pay their last respects to their fallen comrade.
Ssempa’s body is being kept at a mortuary where it has been treated and it will be flown to Uganda early next week.
Ssempa is survived by a son and two daughters whose mum passed away 20 years ago.
