Mother of Quintuplets Loses Battle to Kidney Failure in Kyotera

Kyotera District | THE BLACK EXAMINER | Honoranta Nakato, a 49-year-old teacher, had a memorable last five years after giving birth to quintuplets. Sadly, she didn’t live to see her children grow into adulthood. Nakato, a resident of Kyanika Village in Kyotera District, passed away from kidney failure at Mulago National Referral Hospital. She was buried in her ancestral home in Kyanika, Kabira Sub County, Kyotera District.

Nakato, who taught mathematics at St. Mary’s Ssanje SS in Kyotera District, had battled various illnesses, including breast cancer in 2014. After giving birth to the quintuplets, her health declined, and she suffered from high blood pressure and kidney failure.

Her sister, Ms. Babirye, offered to help care for Nakato’s children, who are currently five years old and attend 3H Model Nursery School in Kyotera Town Council.

Nakato had previously taught at schools in various districts, including Kakoma SS in Rakai District, Sacred Heart Kiteredde SS in Kyotera, and Ndeeba SS in Kayunga District.

Kidney failure is often caused by conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes, as explained by Dr. Louis Ntambaazi from Mengo Hospital.

John Ssansa, a district councilor, praised Nakato as a role model known for her generosity and kindness. Her passing is a loss to the community, and she will be remembered for her ability to raise five children simultaneously.
