COLORADO – The human rights fraternity is in mourning following the passing of a young activist.
Esther Nakajjigo, 23, was hit by a huge gate while exiting a shopping mall in Colorado, USA, at the weekend.
She has been the European Union leader in fighting violence against women in Uganda.
She also holds the NSSF future awards of 2015.
Former RDC Monday William Kintu is appealing to Government to help repatriate the body back home since she did not die of COVID 19.
As an associate for international programmes at Drexel University, Philadelphia, Nakajjigo, supported the recent ant-racism protests in US.
“As anti-racism demonstrations sweep from Minnesota, through Philadelphia and across the United States, as a proud member of the Drexel Community, I strongly applaud the deliberate efforts made by Drexel University to the address the chronic issues of institutional racism that unequivocally impacts the Black community. Thank you for acknowledging the Black and all other beautiful races of the world. But above all, thank you for encouraging everyone to hold you accountable!! You have set a precedence for a new World Order,” she posted on her Facebook wall.
