The Untimely Death Of a FOWODE Beneficiary

On Monday November 15, 2021, Ms Hope Tukamushaba was found dead in her house in Lyantonde at 11pm. The circumstances of her death have not been ascertained yet but she had cuts on her head.

Hope was a beneficiary of Forum for Women in Democracy (FOWODE). She was a member of Tusekimu Women’s group for our AWESOME project, ardently attending our trainings on Women and Leadership but particularly interested in the ones on Sexual Gender Based Violence. She had become a reliable and promising agent of change for FOWODE, going the extra mile to teach against SGBV in the town councils. An enrolled nurse, the 27-year-old leaves behind a 3-year-old girl and a little boy she had adopted.

FOWODE mourns Hope the mother, the nurse, the exceptional civic educator she was fast becoming and so much more that we shall never know. FOWODE condemns violence of any nature against anyone. We hope that justice will be served and the culprits will be brought to book.

Thank you for your efforts to eliminate SGBV from your community, Hope. It is a pity you had to go at the hands of violence.

Rest In Peace our dear Sister!!
