The newly appointed Resident District Commissioner of Kayunga district Hajj Nsereko Mutumba has died according to the latest information.
Believed to be in his late 60’s, Mutumba died from Rubaga Hospital although the cause of his death is yet to be known.
His daughter as quoted by a local newspaper said that his father slept quite okay on Tuesday night at his home in Kinaawa found in Kyengera.
He however woke up on Wednesday morning complaining of stomach complications.
Mutumba had only been the RDC of Kayunga since March of this year. He was also the former spokesperson of the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council.
This news is shocking especially to his comrades with whom he attended the one week RDC retreat that took place at Kyankwanzi and ended on the 31st of July which is last week.
According to the Deputy RDC of Manafwa, Lukka Kagenyi, Nsereko was in very jovial and high spirits. He showed no signs of sickness and was perfectly fine.
“I even challenged him to a run and he laughed it off,” said Kagenyi.
The Deputy RDC of Gimbal Joshua Kasoma Zaake expressed his shock saying that he had spoken to the deceased just a few days ago.
“I last spoke to Mutumba physically on Sunday when were setting off from Kyankwanzi. I travelled with him on the bus and he told me so many stories about his time at UMSC, about the media…it is a pity he is gone,” Zaake said.
Mutumba was one of the popular faces of the Old Kampala Muslim faction headed by Mufti Sheikh Ramathan Mubaje. He however left his role after his term expired in 2020.
