He added that one of his uncles succumbed to COVID-19.

“I had just finished filming at a crammed ICU treating critical Covid-19 patients in Uganda’s capital of Kampala last month when I learnedthat my uncle Justus had himself died of the virus across the border in Kenya. I was heartbroken and angry.

Larry’s grandmother had been on a ventilator for over four weeks.

In a story the journalist penned on Wednesday, July 21, Madowo noted that his heart sinks every time he gets a call from a relative saying that he usually anticipates bad news.
”Every time I see a call from home, my heart sinks. I always fear that they’re ringing to say that my grandmother has died. She has been on a ventilator for four weeks and my anxiety is near breaking point. ”
