Senior Presidential Advisor on Media Matters and CEO Mirundi Intelligence Security Operations, Tamale Mirundi over the weekend lost a daughter during childbirth.
Monica Namatovu Mirundi died as a result of complications after she delivered a baby at Mengo hospital on Saturday and was buried on Sunday at 4:00pm at Matale, in Kalisizo district.
During the burial ceremony, People Power was represented by Chairman Nyanzi who passed on their heartfelt condolences and Hon. Muhammad Nsereko who also introduced himself as a people power follower.
Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine who is away on a European tour and is leader of the People Power Movement also condoled with Mirundi in a Facebook post.
“My thoughts are with our brother Tamale Mirundi whose daughter; Moreen Mirundi passed on and has been buried today, the pain of losing a child is simply inexplicable. I send a message of strength to him and his family and ask all of us to keep them in our prayers.” Bobi wine wrote
Mirundi’s daughter lost her life as result of the negligence of doctors who reportedly refused to administer an anti-clot injection before payment of 600,000shs.
The National NRM Youth Coordinator Eng. Ssewava Mukasa Joseph called for a quick medical report explaining the circumstances over the unbearable news surrounding the death of the young lady.
“Monica Namatovu was such a great person; she will live on in our memories forever. I was deeply saddened by the news of Monica passing. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family,” he said.
While speaking to Dunstan Busuulwa, Top Radio host on Monday evening, Mirundi said his daughter was denied an injection by unprofessional doctors because of Shs. 600,000 “as if it is much money I would not afford”.
He said the doctors’ refusal to administer an anti-clot injection saw his daughter bleed to death.
“I can look for those doctors and hammer them,” he threatened.
Mirundi also blamed himself for being too arrogant to the extent that both his daughter and her husband feared him and could not ask him for financial help while she was in Labour.
While appearing on NBS television, Mirundi said he was grateful to the general public for the sympathies and love showed to his family following the loss of his daughter.
“My mother was shocked that many people showed up yet she hears that I abuse people on radios and TVs,” he said.
