We have laid Omugave Joseph Ssemakula Ndugwa to rest in Masaka—Kimaanya. He succumbed to prostate cancer in California where he was staying after migrating to the USA.
Until his death, Omugave Ndugwa was widely considered to be the father of Ugandan theatre. He was a playwright, an actor, and a producer, among many other artistic roles.
He founded The Black Pearls, one of the most prominent drama groups in Uganda especially in the 1980s onwards. He also founded Wandugu Stars, another drama group in which I used to act while still in my childhood. May he rest well.
