It is a somber mood at the family of the Wabwiires After the tragic passing of their new bride Joan Namutebi.
Joan Namutebi, a daughter to Gayaza High School Supremo has passed on due to complications she suffered as she attempted to enroll in family planning. Joan was married to Derrick Wabwiire.
The couple tied the knot last Friday and went to the Women’s Hospital International and Fertility Clinic In Bukoto where they sought to enroll in birth control.
At the facility, the couple opted for an Intra-Uterine Device -IUD to be inserted into her. It is also reported that before this procedure was carried out, she was asked to take enough water which she did.
However, moments later, Joan started feeling stomach pains which made her faint. She subsequently went into a coma until Friday morning when she passed on.
Joan and Derrick Wabwire wedded last Friday. Shortly after their wedding, they visited the Women’s Hospital International and Fertility Clinic Bukoto for birth control measures.
“Very sad morning for us all. Just Friday last week you were a very happy bride at your wedding and today you have gone to be with the Lord.
RIP dear Joan Namutebi daughter of the Headmistress of Gayaza High School. Mrs. Robinah Kizito may the Almighty send all the angels in heaven to be with you and give you strength to carry on the good work you do for this nation. Amen,” Sharitah a close family friend posted.
The Criminal Investigations Directorate-CID has kicked off investigations into a strange incident in which the freshly wedded woman died from the hospital in an attempt to have a contraceptive procedure.
Police preliminary findings have indicated that the couple held their reception at Sheraton Hotel and spent the same night there in preparation to go for their honeymoon. However, on Saturday, the couple chose to first go to the Women’s hospital in Bukoto for a family planning injection.
“Upon reaching the hospital, doctors advised them to take an intrauterine device-IUD coil,” Twine said. “She was scanned but her uterus was not well-positioned and the doctors gave her water hoping that it would probably align the uterus. It was also established that the deceased was having her periods and fasting too.”
May her soul Rest in Eternal Peace.
