Saturday, August 25th 2018 will always be remembered like any of those days that come and pass by but not to the family, friends and all those who knew Recheal Ayebazibwe.
Rechael Ayebazibwe was a finalist at Kyambogo University where she was awaiting her graduation in December this year, having completed a three-year Bachelors Degree course in Microfinance in June this year.
Sadly, her graduation dream would be cut short after she was hit by a stray bullet during the Monday 20th, August 2018 #FreeBobiWine protests in the city sending her into comma until yesterday, when she breathed her last.
According to a family source that was contacted by our reporter Jonah Kirabo, the deceased left home that day to take her final year research report to the academic supervisor at Kyambogo University only to get a call from unidentified people hours later informing them that Rechael was shot and had been rushed to Victoria hospital, Bukoto in a dire situation.
The source who requested to remain anonymous also told us that she had since gone into comma but her health seemed to be improving each day and the news of her death left them devastated.
Friends and former classmates have since taken to social media to moan the death of Recheal writing about her as a girl who was humble, God loving and one that will always be missed in their circles.
Speaking to Amanya German yesterday evening, the Kyambogo University guild president told Nile Post that he knew Recheal personally and news of her death left him deeply hurt.
” I’m so hurt. The night I won the elections, we were at Nanziri grounds where we had our victory dance that late night. This lady came to me and was so happy. She told me “German, come and I give you a congratulations dance… I will never forget that moment. We were planning to visit her on Monday but sadly, this has not been possible” – A visibly broken German told this website.
The Guild president also condemned the acts of security organs using ammunitions to kill their own citizens instead of protecting them.
Rechael Ayebazibwe celebrated her birthday only two weeks (August 6) before she made her death.
Rest in perfect peace, Rachael Ayebazibwe.
