STELLA MARIS NANTONGO

THE STORY OF STELLA NANTONGO

In 1979, Uganda and Tanzania were experiencing a war which was to take down President Iddi Amin Daada. During that time I and my pregnant wife lived in a 2 roomed house at Namasuba which is about 4Km from Kampala Rd. Out of the blue the Rocket Paired Grenade hit the house and we lost consciousness for about an hour. I came back to my senses and I summoned my wife, in a thought that she might have got hit by fragments and might be dead, who later replied that “I’m fine, but I cannot feel our child playing, what if she has died!” This took 21 days when the pregnancy had ceased to make movements.
