Charles Bukeko famously known as Papa Shirandula breathed his last on Saturday the 18th which left many in shock and broken.
His wife Beatrice Andega spoke for the first time in public during his burial that was held this morning in Busia.
“MY HUSBAND DIED WHILE SEATED IN THE VEHICLE AT KAREN HOSPITAL. HE DID EVERYTHING FOR ME. HE IS A MAN WHO SUPPORTED ME AND IF I WANTED TO DO A PROJECT I COULD TALK TO HIM. HE SUPPORTED ME. " SHE NARRATED
She then gave details of his last day saying,
HE CAME ON SUNDAY AND TOLD ME HE WAS FEELING COLD THEN ON MONDAY I TOLD HIM TO GO AND DO PNEUMONIA, MALARIA AND COVID-19 TESTS. I TOLD HIM TO MAKE SURE THEY WERE THREE TESTS. ON WEDNESDAY HE SAID HE HAD ONLY RECEIVED COVID-19 RESULTS. ON FRIDAY, I SAW HE WAS NOT DOING WELL SO I TOOK HIM TO THE HOSPITAL ON SATURDAY.
Beatrice added that the admission process took so long that she feels he passed on out of negligence.
"HE PASSED ON WHEN I WAS WITH HIM. HE WAS SEATED IN THE CAR WAITING FOR ADMISSION. THE DOCTOR THEN TOLD ME THAT THEY ONLY DID ONE TEST ON HIM. I FELT IT WAS NEGLIGENCE… I WISH THEY DID EVERYTHING TO SAVE HIM… I SURRENDER ALL.” SHE CONCLUDED
