New Vision photo journalist, Royce Mubiru Kakebe, passed away yesterday evening at Mulago hospital where he was admitted after being diagnosed with tetanus.
Kakebe’s death came when the will of God defeated science. He spent his last days on life supporting machines.
Reliable sources have revealed that Kakebe acquired tetanus after a yet to be identified woman wounded him with the help of broken bottle pieces.
The mysterious woman accused Kakebe of taking her photos without permission.
Photo journalists who have worked with Kakebe have described him as a hard working and a focused person.
“For the years I have known him, he has been good and hard working. As a media fraternity we will miss him and we have lost a great person on intelligence and vision,” said of Kakebe’s great friends.
