123, landmark address


Mrs Doreen Nazziwa Muwanga Sejjengo was born on 22 February 1956 in Mulago Hospital, Kampala, Buganda Kingdom in Uganda. She is one of the daughters of the late Alice and Charles Kyambadde Muwanga of Nabutaka, Gitta, Kasangati Town Council, Wakiso.

Schooling started at Ntinda Primary School. Ntinda was also the earlier residence of her a parent’s home where she started her earlier life on the 1960s famous Ntinda Estate, northeast of Kampala. She then attended the girl’s school of Stella Maris Nsuube, Kyaggwe County (Mukono District) that was run by Catholic Christian Missionary sisters.

After school life, she attended a Secretarial College in London and in 1980 she worked as a secretary with Uganda High Commission in London.

She then joined the passport office of the Zimbabwe High Commission in London. In 1996 she joined the UK’s Department for Transport and worked in the haulage department.

During this time, she took up further education with the Open University and gained a social science Bachelor of Arts in 1998.

In 2006 she took early retirement, traveled and took on voluntary work in the community. In 2013 she volunteered as secretary of Okusinza Mu Luganda which is a Luganda language service in Church of England St John Waterloo in London

Doreen and her husband Robert Sejjengo are long standing members of Uganda Community in London and known for their participation in community activities as well as activities which support their original country, Uganda.

Doreen was an active Christian through prayer and counselling her friends, always thankful to God for her life and always praying and helping those who were in need. She was generous too and whenever possible contributed whatever little fund she had to charity. She always portrayed faith in God although never a conservative and enjoyed dancing and listening to popular songs as well as spiritual church music.

Since she survived the diagnosis of cancer on her bladder in 2008, that was subsequently successfully operated on, she took on an even more positive attitude. Like everybody else, the pandemic in 2020 curtailed her activities in Church work and community.

After receiving, her Covid-19 vaccinations, Doreen was hoping to gradually be more active. However, in March of this year (2021) after experiencing recurring abdominal pain, she was diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer on the lever, lung and bone. Doctors at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich London made great efforts to try and control this cancer with radiotherapy and Chemotherapy, but the disease was well advanced. Sadly, after five months of pain, Doreen passed away in the morning of 12 August 2021 at Bexley and Greenwich Community Hospice in South London.
