Reggae artiste Tshaka Mayanja, Buganda Kingdom and the country at large are currently mourning the death of former Attorney General, Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister and Buganda Kingdom’s Prime Minister (Katikiro) in 1966, the late Mayanja Nkagi who passed on today morning at 8:30 AM according to media reports at Nakasero hospital after succumbing to Pneumonia.

While at Nakasero Hospital, the deceased had been pending a transfer to India for further treatment until today when death robbed him of his dear life.

In an earlier press statement issued by Josephine Nkangi the deceased’s daughter earlier last week she said. “Until this week, we didn’t really know what the extent of the damage was. The doctors said it was pneumonia. However, on Sunday, my father took a turn for the worse. An oncologist was called in and on Monday, we learnt that dad is seriously ill.” 

Chano8 tried to inquire from Tshaka Mayanja about further preparations like when the requiem mass and burial  will be held but our efforts were futile as we couldn’t reach him.

Mr. Nkangi has been a lawyer who attended Kabungo Primary School in Buddu County, Kings College Buddo, Makerere University and later Oxford University in England. He was a very close to King of Buganda and president of Uganda in 1962 and he served him as a minister without portfolio.

As Chano8 we take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt condolenses to the family, friends and relatives of the deceased and may he rest in peace.
