A young achiever, activist, and journalist has died in United States.
Reports indicate that Esther Nakajjugo, 23, died in a storm accident.
Ms Nakajjugo, a child rights activist, had already climbed the mountain, but was not yet on the top. She was destined for bigger roles in life due to her touch with little children and women issues. Her life was indeed cut short.

At 23 years of age, this youthful journalist had been appointed the European Union leader in fighting violence against women in Uganda. She is also a Nelson Mandela fellow a US government program for promising African leaders. Her life’s goal was to see every girl child access education.
