Yesterday the news broke through the internet that an international journalist who has been working FROM Uganda Sumaya Carrasco Sadurni Sumy had died in an accident. It is said that Sumy and her driver were heading to Kiryandongo.
According to Bobi Wine, Sumy was an active journalist especially in the 2022 presidential campaigns. Bobi Wine said he sends his condolences to Sumy’s family and the journalist fraternity.
“Still trying to come to terms with news of the tragic death of international journalist Sumaya Carrasco Sadurni ‘Sumy’ who is said to have suffered a fatal accident together with her driver in Kiryandongo. Sumy was particularly active in the run up to and during the 2021 presidential campaigns during which she extensively covered and reported on much of our mostly-violent experiences. [She took the last photo on this post] Her work prompted certain regime spokespersons to refer to her as a CIA agent. At one point, she was forced to flee from one of our press conferences in Kamwokya citing threats she was facing due to her work in Uganda. I condole with Sumy’s family, friends, colleagues and the entire media fraternity upon her death. May her soul rest in eternal peace,”
