Kampala, (UG): With the untimely demise of singer and actress Evelyn Nakabira (stage names Evelyn Love or Evelyn Lagu) covering the news this week, several Ugandans have come out to express sympathy as they eulogize the fallen singer who succumbed to Kidney complications on Monday this week.

Among the many such high-profile figures is Dr Lawrence Muganga, the Vice Chancellor of Victoria University, who in his eulogy revealed that he has offered Lagu’s son Freddie Kasavu a full scholarship to complete his studies at the University.

“I have been seeing the news of the death of Evelyn Lagu and it’s a pity that we have lost her. In this world, we are visitors. The Creator who brought us, time will reach when He takes away from it and the Almighty will judge us for our earthly doings,” Dr Muganga said of Lagu’s death.

“If it’s true that Freddie is no longer able to access studies where he was, he can come and we give him a hand at Victoria University,” he added.

Muganga was responding to news surrounding Lagu’s son who said in an interview on Bukedde TV that he had to quit school because his mother needed care and she could not raise money for him to study.
