President Yoweri Museveni’s former Press Secretary Mrs Hope Kivengere has died.
Mrs Kivengere passed away this morning at Nakasero Hospital in Kampala.
The sad news was confirmed by currently Presidential Press Sectary, Linda Nabusayi.
Mrs Kivengere was Museveni’s longest serving Press Secretary, having served in the position from 1986 to 2001.
“She always checked in on the Press whenever she was back home. We have lost a great civil servant,” said Mrs Nabusayi.
Following her retirement from State House, Mrs Kivengere served on different foreign peace keeping missions in Sudan and Somalia, and was part of the formation of IGAD.
