Mummy Susanna’s other Sons include Ronald Jakuma Keronga, Kumakech Keronga, Usaga Nelson Keronga and Chef Pascal Keronga.

Mummy Susan was one of the pioneer hair dressers in kampala, having opened a beauty hair salon at Kisementi in Kololo in the early 70s. Her children later all worked with her in that salon to make their pocket money for school. Susan’s beauty salon was very popular in the 80s and early 90s. After 30 years of salon work, she later stopped after developing some chest pain. She then decided to open a fish stall in Kamwokya market in late 90s, where she sold fish from lake Albert called Pedu and Angara. She was once again very well known and loved for her generosity in her sale of her fish. Even when her children asked her to slow down and let them take care of her, she insisted on going to her famous Kamwokya market. Mummy Susan was a very hard working woman who worked hard to compliment her civil servant husband late Stephen Keronga, who was an accountant and later auditor with Uganda Electricity Board.

On Monday 28th November 2022, Mummy Susanna went to her market as usual in good moods after her excitement that her daughter had just returned from Vietnam the previous day and she was looking forward to receiving her ‘goodies’ which she always got from her children whenever they traveled or came to visit her. At 4.30 pm, shortly after talking with her son in law Tom Manano and her son Jimmy Bithum, Mummy just collapsed upon being rushed to Hospital in Naguru, she was pronounced dead at the hospital. The postmortem was later to show that she suffered from very high blood pressure which caused her aorta, a main vein in the heart to burst, killing her instantly!

There will be a Requiem Mass at St. Charles Lwanga Ntinda Parish on Thursday 01st December 2022 starting at 02:00pm and thereafter followed by vigil at the residence of Tom Manano and Ambassador Beatrice Keronga.

Burial will take place at Panyimur – Nyakagei on Saturday 03rd December 2022 starting with a Requiem Mass at 11:00am.

Informed are: Relatives, Friends and in-laws.
