East Africa’s Song bird and Tusker Project Fame judge Juliana Kanyomozi of Uganda has tragically lost her only child Keron Raphael Kabugo.
11 year old Keron succumbed to an asthmatic attack on Sunday morning at Aga Khan hospital in Nairobi just days after her mum appealed to her fans to wish him a quick recovery;
“My Family and I would like to inform my friends and fans that my little Angel Keron has not been well after suffering a severe asthma attack while at school. He is currently admitted at Aga Khan Hospital Nairobi, and is getting the best medical attention. I am by his bedside 24 hours.” Juliana had said.
Yesterday, Juliana broke the sad news on her Facebook page. “My angel has just gone to the Lord; He passed away at 10:25am this morning. He’s been such a fighter. Thank you for praying for my little angel. I will try and be as strong as I possibly can. Rest in peace Keron. Sleep well my son. Till we meet again.”” she wrote.
It’s reported that Keron suffered a severe asthma attack about two weeks ago, and later developed severe pneumonia which left his lungs badly infected and was initially admitted to Nakasero Hospital in Kampala for a week before being airlifted to Nairobi.
No parent should ever bury their child and the Kenya Forum sends our heartfelt condolences to Juliana and her family.
