Mubiru died on Wednesday evening at Mulago hospital where he has spent some few days on life supporting machines.

Mubiru is believed to have died of Tetanus that he acquired via a wound that he obtained when Percy Nanyondo hit her with a piece of a broken bottle at a Boat Cruise in January.

Percy Nanyondo accused Kakebe of taking her photo without her consent.

According to our highly place sources in police, Kakebe had reported an assault case at Kitintale police post on January 19 and on February 15, Percy Nanyondo was arrested but she was later released on February 17 after Kakebe reached a mutual agreement with Percy.

Kakebe is survived by a widow and two beautiful daughters.

He will be buried today at his ancestral home in Wakiso District.
