Hundreds of people on Thursday flocked Kabale police play ground to bid farewell to the fallen broadcaster, Passy Kamusiime.

Kamusiime, 31, has been working with the Kabale based Voice of Kigezi radio as mid morning show host and the Runyankole/Rukiga news anchor.

She died on Thursday at Kabale regional referral hospital over an unknown illness.

According to a medical report presented by Andrew Agaba, the VOK station manager, medics noted that despite the deceased’ s medical diagnosis indicating negative sickness results, she battled a strong headache and mental instability.

The Voice of Kigezi director, Eng. Ivan Batuma hailed Kamusiime for being a hard working employee who aimed at perfectionism.

“She was employee number 27 in our staff. She has been a very excellent performer who always acted as a super link between the radio audience and the station,” said Batuma.

Darius Nandinda, the Kabale Resident District Commissioner commended Kamusiime for being a professional broadcaster who never sounded biased on air and treated all people equally.

“We were planning to recognise her among the best radio presenters we have in this region for her good works but she has left us without its fulfilment,” said Nandinda.

Elly Maate, the Kigezi regional police spokesperson used the platform to rally mourners to embrace love for their neighbours to ensure a harmonious living.

Preaching during the requiem service, Ivan Mubangizi, the Rushaki ward ray leader asked Christians to ensure that they observe biblical teachings in the execution of their duties.

She will be laid to rest in Omukihindi cell, Southern Division, Rukungiri municipality on Friday.
