Uganda Broadcasting Corporation veteran broadcaster, Bbale Francis, has died.
Bbale’s daughter confirmed the broadcaster’s death to his employers.
Famed news anchor, Bbale Francis, has for a long-time been under medical examination at the Mulago Cancer Institute.
He had the cancer of the bladder and has been undergoing treatment since his admission last year.

She said the corporation was soliciting funds to take Bbale to India for specialised treatment.
He was a trainer of news broadcasters by the time of his death.
He was also a lecturer at UMCAT institute of journalism.
