Kampala. Rosemary Nankbirwa is dead. The Media fraternity is once again mourning the former NTV news anchor Rosemary who succumbed to cancer at Agha Khan Hospital in Nairobi today afternoon where she was flown for treatment on Saturday.

Information about Nankabirwa’s death came in at around 2pm in the afternoon on local radio stations and the social media. The stations claimed that Nankabirwa had died in the morning but NTV Uganda via their twitter account dismissed the claims.

“Until you have an official statement from NTV Uganda, please refrain from spreading the rumour. We ask that you instead keep her in your prayers,” read the tweet.

At around 3, NTV Uganda confirmed that Rosemary Nankabirwa had died. “Rosemary Nankabirwa has been pulled off life support. Her family has confirmed that she has passed on. May her soul rest in peace,” stated the tweet.

Her passing on comes just a week after another News Anchor Francis Bbale of Uganda Broadcasting Corporation succumbed to cancer.

Journalists, politicians and her fans have taken to various social media platforms to pay tribute to the fallen News anchor.

“Rosemary came to check on me at work a couple of years ago. I didn’t think it’d be our last meeting, kitalo nyo,” posted BBC presenter Allan Kasujja on twitter.

Sarah Kigongo posted, “It hurts Rosemary has not made it. From God we come and to God we return.”

Siima K K sabiti a presenter with XFM said “How sad. Rest in Peace Rosemary Nankabirwa.

Olara Otunu, the UPC president posted “You made your family and friends proud Rosemary Nankabirwa. You served your country right Now rest my jolly young girl.”

She was flown to Agha Khan on Saturday morning. On that same day, friends and fans joined a campaign dubbed “Save Rosemary Nankabirwa Fundraising Drive,” where they raised over 100milliion Ugshs for her treatment.

Rosemary has been battling adrenocortical cancer, a very rare disease that affects the adrenal glands..

Tributes are still flowing in via Facebook and twitter. Rosemary Nankabirwa will forever be in our hearts and we at Eagle pray that the Lord grants your soul eternal peace. Just like the UPC president Olara Otunnu, we too say “You served your country right. Now rest our dear friend.”

Campaigns to raise money to have the two news anchors to be flown to India for treatment had just kicked.
