Kampala, Uganda: We Remember Ivan, 27!

One day, in 2009 a group of friends talked about forming an entertaining chorus or music group. They threw around ideas but we left things to go on a burner as it were. Other issues needed to be dealt with. 12 people had HIV and needed care in form of transport and nutrition support. 24 had housing issues and 170 needed to be part of a social support network in which they could express their needs. Among the members with whom we were discussing was Eric Lubega Ngobi who also goes by the name Ivan.

Fast forward, the year is 2014, a team has just arrived in Kenya and is going through a locational cultural shock. No more familiar places like it was in Uganda! From that time on, it was new culture, new way of doing things, new languages, not many familiar faces. Even the Kenyans who studied in Uganda were distant. Perhaps because this particular group had come out as LGBTIQQ. Friends were far and apart. People relied on handouts and sex work. They also relied on well wishers who never discriminated nor judged them. 

Ivan was such a person who was a well wisher. Ivan was young, strapping, dashing, good looking and a social organizer. A mountain of warmth and a very dedicated friend. So, the news of his death shocked many. Ivan rubbed shoulders with MPs, musicians and Uganda's elite. So, his death comes with shock, disbelief and angst. We hope and pray that he rests eternally in peace.

                      Eric Lubega Ngobi Rest In Peace

Whatever happened, we want to send off Ivan with this short piece in our paper. May Ivan rest in peace. We have borrowed two quotes that summarize that essence of Ivan from ‘Events Kla UG Facebook Page’ that was run by him:


“I have reached a point in life where I feel it is no longer necessary to try and impress anyone. if they like me then I am good, if they don't it is their loss. If you want to live, stop asking permissions do it now and regret later.”


About last Friday at #UEASerena. Get ready for blue party season two ft fashion at space Lounge soon.”

Details surrounding the death of Ivan who passed away at 27 years are still unclear. We shall bring the full details once information is clearer. But, Mpala a semi-urban neighbourhood known for its serene settings will no longer be mentioned without the memory of Ivan. Its sparkling homes, the laid back decor and green patches with muddy brown openings will noo allure me without juxtaposing Ivan's memory!

  2. My life is beautiful thanks to you, Mein Helfer. Lord Jesus in my life as a candle light in the darkness. You showed me the meaning of faith with your words. I know that even when I cried all day thinking about how to recover, you were not sleeping, you were dear to me. I contacted the herbal center Dr Itua, who lived in West Africa. A friend of mine here in Hamburg is also from Africa. She told me about African herbs but I was nervous. I am very afraid when it comes to Africa because I heard many terrible things about them because of my Christianity. god for direction, take a bold step and get in touch with him in the email and then move to WhatsApp, he asked me if I can come for treatment or I want a delivery, I told him I wanted to know him I buy ticket in 2 ways to Africa To meet Dr. Itua, I went there and I was speechless from the people I saw there. Patent, sick people. Itua is a god sent to the world, I told my pastor about what I am doing, Pastor Bill Scheer. We have a real battle beautifully with Spirit and Flesh. Adoration that same night. He prayed for me and asked me to lead. I spent 2 weeks and 2 days in Africa at Dr Itua Herbal Home. After the treatment, he asked me to meet his nurse for the HIV test when I did it. It was negative, I asked my friend to take me to another nearby hospital when I arrived, it was negative. I was overwhite with the result, but happy inside of me. We went with Dr. Itua, I thank him but I explain that I do not have enough to show him my appreciation, that he understands my situation, but I promise that he will testify about his good work. Thank God for my dear friend, Emma, I know I could be reading this now, I want to thank you. And many thanks to Dr. Itua Herbal Center. He gave me his calendar that I put on my wall in my house.

  3. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid,,Non Hodgkin Lymphoma,Skin Cancer,Uterine Cancer,Prostate Cancer Dercum,Infertility,fibromyalgia,Get Your Ex Back,Als,SYPHILLIS,Genetic disease,Epilepsy, Parkinson's disease..You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Herbal Doctor via this e-mail: drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com or call and whatsapp him on +2348149277967 He will help you and his herb medication is sure. he has the cure on all disease .You can talk to me on INSTAGRAM..tashamoore219....

  7. FINALLY FREE FROM HERPES VIRUS
    I thought my life had nothing to offer anymore because life
    became meaningless to me because I had Herpes virus, the
    symptoms became very severe and bold and made my family
    run from and abandoned me so they won't get infected. I gave
    up everything, my hope, dreams,vision and job because the
    doctor told me there's no cure. I consumed so many drugs but
    they never cured me but hid the symptoms inside me making
    it worse. I was doing some research online someday when I
    came across testimonies of some people of how DR Ebhota
    cured them from Herpes, I never believed at first and thought
    it was a joke but later decided to contact him on the details
    provided and when I messaged him we talked and he sent me
    his herbal medicine and told me to go for a test after two
    weeks. Within 7 days of medication the symptoms
    disappeared and when I went for a test Lo and behold I was
    NEGATIVE by the Doctor Who tested me earlier. Thank you DR
    Ebhota because I forever owe you my life and I'll keep on
    telling the world about you. If you are going through same
    situation worry no more and contact DR Ebhota via
    drebhotasolution@gmail. com or WhatsApp him via +2348089535482.
    he also special on cureing 1. HIV/AIDS2. HERPES 3. CANCER 4.
    ALS 5. HEPATITIS B 6.DIABETES 7. HUMAN PAPILOMA VIRUS DISEASE(HPV)8. 
    ALZHEIMER 9. LUPUS (Lupus Vulgaris or LupusErythematosus
