On behalf of the entire Akina Mama wa Afrika Team, we would like to express our deepest sorrow and condolence to Dr. Margaret Mungherera’s family and the Ugandan government upon her demise Uganda has indeed lost a Shero, the first African woman President of the World Medical Association, a founding mother, strong advocate, and visionary leader in the World of Health.
We shall always treasure Doctor’s tremendous contribution to securing the rights of women and children in Uganda and beyond. Her foot prints of Hope after rape remain a testament to the power in providing support to survivors of sexual abuse and other forms of gender based violence. Just as she told the world, “We must not tire, we must not give up, we must persist.” We too are challenged to carry forth her legacy as we work to secure a safe world for all.
“We are never so Lost that Angles Cannot Find Us”
