Patricia Nabakooza, the 11 year old sitya loss dancer who was recently admitted to case clinic hospital after an accident that claimed her friend and fellow dancer, Alex Sempijja has left the hospital. Friends intimate to the Kampala Sun that Patricia recovered steadily and was put off the intensive care unit and today, she was discharged.
“She has been taken to her Grandmothers home in Mpererwe so they can monitor her recovery from there” said a source close to the family.
This revelation however comes at a time when she is head deep, buried in oblivion to the fact that her friend, Alex Sempijja, with whom they rode the bicycle on which they got the accident, is dead.
On her way out, she asked the organizer of the Green Festival, Joseph Masembe, whether she will be joined by Alex to perform at the festival. The group that had gone to face her froze, and decided it wasn’t the right time for her to know. A reason the answer was a lie to console her and usher her into steady recovery.
“The family doesn’t want to tell her yet as clearly, it might worsen her condition. You cant subject her to two traumas at ago. Let her first recover from one” said a friend who knew the family.
She was received by musician, Rema Namakula and the triplets foundation caretaker, Dauda Kavuma.
We only hope she recovers and resumes with her clearly bright career as a dancer.
