City events promoter Balaam Barugahara’s son, Jonathan Tumusiime Amooti, is dead.
“Germ cell tumor has deprived us of our wonderful ninja before he reached the best hospital in the world. We had secured for him to travel to America yesterday. He couldn’t reach here! After a long battle in India,” Balaam wrote on his Facebook page.
Tumusiime passed on Saturday at a time his father was planning to take him to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Massachusetts USA for further treatment.
He had earlier been treated at Mulago hospital in Kampala, Redcross Hospital in South Africa and Aster Medcity in India.
Avigil for Tumusiime was held on Monday night at his Ntinda home.
A requiem mass for him got underway today, Tuesday at St. Charles Lwanga Church in Ntinda.
He will be buried in Nakasajja on Gayaza Road at 2pm.
