Late Bonney Katatumba’s widow- Getrude hospitalized, undergoes operation at IHK

Singer Angella Katatumba and her siblings pose for a photo with their mother at IHK this evening

Less than three weeks after the demise of her husband- the late Bonney Katatumba, Mrs Getrude Katatumba, one of the fallen Pakistan Consul’s widows has also been admitted at the International Hospital of Kampala (IHK) for the past few days.

We have gathered that Mrs Katatumba underwent a thyroidectomy operation this morning.

A thyroidectomy is an operation that involves the surgical removal of all or part of the thyroid gland. Head and neck or endocrine surgeons often perform a thyroidectomy when a patient has thyroid cancer or some other condition of the thyroid gland (such as hyperthyroidism) or goiter.

Getrude is the mother to singer Angella Katatumba and her twin brother Rugirwa Katatumba as well as a few other children of the late Bonney Katatumba.

Moments ago, Angella posted a photo of her and her siblings standing next to her mother on her hospital bed and had this to say; “Mama just had a Thyroidectomy operation at IHK this m orning. The devil is after us this 2017…what a year, but in Jesus’ name, we will prevail.”

Please include Mrs Katatumba in your prayers folks!
