Raymond Steven Sekitayira was set to be introduced by his girlfriend, Joy Nekesa this weekend on October 31, 2020. Unfortunately what had been planned as a day of celebration now causes sadness as the groom reportedly dropped dead only three days to his traditional ceremony.
Sekitayira held his last wedding meeting last Sunday but collapsed at his workplace in Kampala on Wednesday (yesterday) morning. His workmates rushed him to IHK Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
A scan indicated a blood clot, according to reports.
The couple was set to have their wedding a week after the introduction on Nov 7th.
Sekatayira was an Architect and Rotaract leader.
Many people have turned to social media to send their condolences.
Rotaract club of Nateete posted, ”It is so sad we lost our own son, friend, leader, Rotaractor, Treasurer and Past President from our own baby club- Rotaract Club of Nateete Kampala, Rct Raymond Steven Sekitayira, MHSRIP
Rotary Club of Nateete Kampala sends it’s deepest condolences and may God strengthen the family, friends and close relatives in these difficult moments.
