During the final send-off of her brother, Alex Kayanja Ssekandi, son of former Vice President Edward Ssekandi, Phiona Ssekandi disclosed the cause of his death last week. She spoke to mourners on Sunday, October 15, 2023, revealing that her brother’s demise was a result of excessive alcohol consumption.

Phiona emphasized the importance of acknowledging the negative consequences of alcoholism, especially for the benefit of young people. She said, “It would be a disservice if we don’t speak the truth that alcoholism is harmful and should be avoided.” She added that their family had tried to help her brother overcome his addiction, but unfortunately, it progressed to a point where it severely affected vital organs, ultimately leading to his passing.

Phiona further explained that her brother’s kidneys had failed, followed by the liver and pancreas, making his body unresponsive to medical intervention. Alex Kayanja Ssekandi, aged 39, passed away on Thursday last week at Lubaga Hospital, where he had been under medical care for two weeks.
