The insurance company is extending financial assistance to the family of Aria Kirabo Migadde, 1, who is suffering from mitral valve disease to enable her receive a life-saving operation in India. This comes after receiving treatment at AAR Entebbe for the past 6 months without improving.

“Many people with mitral valve disease experience no symptoms. However, if left untreated, mitral valve disease can lead to serious, life-threatening complications such as heart failure or irregular heartbeats, called arrhythmias,” explained Dr Nazziwa Rose, AAR Entebbe Clinic.

Mitral valve disease occurs when the mitral valve doesn’t work properly, allowing blood to flow backward into the left atrium. As a result, the heart does not pump enough blood out of the left ventricular chamber to supply thebody with oxygen-filled blood.

AAR Insurance is contributing Ugx 15 million towards Aria’s treatment in India. The money was handed over to Aria’s parents on Wednesday.

“For any parent, having to watch their child, irrespective of age, go through a grueling order is no easy feat. As AAR Insurance, we are not only friends to the Migadde’s but have grown a closer bond with Aria. Our thoughts and prayers remain with you while in Aria and we are looking forward to your healthy return,” stated Christine Nassuna, GM AAR Insurance.

Fred Migadde, the father to Aria, expressed his gratitude to AAR Insurance saying that, “We are eternally grateful- not only for the financial contribution from AAR Insurance but also to their medical teams, continued supervision, updating and oversight of our daughters condition.”

While eulogizing his mother at All Saints Church, Mwenda described her as the most beautiful chic that ever lived. But one could not help but see the pain in his statements.

At 12 noon, Adyeeri Constance Muhangazima, was laid to rest in the great village of Kanyandahi.

Andrew Mwenda then took to Twitter to express his current pain and depression. He called it the biggest blow ever. He talked of feeling all lost and alone.

We can only pray for the best of comforting to the old man of the clan. Losing a mother is surely the hardest thing that ever happens to anyone in life. There is no hole deeper. It is a hole that cuts through a soul.

Banzega: How Kisekka Market Mechanics Rob Car Owners; Ring Leader Revealed

Published

By Staff Writer

Many people in the past have shared nasty tales about their experiences with Kisekka market mechanics.

Bell All Star Tour is coming to your town. Click here to find out when.

BigEye.ug was able to speak to some mechanics who work at Kisekka market who revealed how the car repair scams happen. At Kisekka market, you basically pay for zero repairs on your car.

According to this mechanic, it is a big mistake for one to come by this area without calling up a specific mechanic. “We have cheap, good quality spare parts. But one should know that it usually doesn’t come cheap.”

These mechanics target naive drivers. They will warn you about someone wrong with your tyre and immediately offer a quick 5 minutes fix.

Before long others are taking off other tyres and claiming to be replacing car parts. Afterwards, they will give you a bill while your car has been stripped bare to the rims.

In order to survive, one has to pay or else the car won’t move. In Kisekka market, they call this method: “Banzega and Kusula masasi.”

We were also told that the ring leader is a one Bibi Atiriba; he runs his crime ring together with the nearby police post which takes a share of every bill. The police post will always rule in favour of the mechanics. “That guy has been to every prison in the country. He is feared by everyone. He is like a Kitatta but much more influential. He often brags that only Museveni can order him around,” this insider revealed to us.

“If you want your car to be repaired well, then it is best to just go straight to him. Or else wait to be scammed while in kisekka market.”
