Hon.Kaudha Grace Hailat Magumba-Iganga Woman Mp (NRM) Died while Giving Birth. Kaudha succumbed to severe preeclampsia.   Preeclampsia is a condition during pregnancy where there is a sudden rise in blood pressure and swelling, mostly in the face, hands, and feet. Preeclampsia is the most common complication to occur during pregnancy.  Kaudha was reportedly rushed to Case clinic kampala only to be told that there was no gynaecologist on duty.
She was referred to Mulago National Referral hospital (Kawempe extension) where she died. Born on  October 14th, 1986, Kaudha was serving her first term in Parliament having replaced Kabaale Kwagala Olivia as Iganga district woman Mp. She is the 3rd Mp to die in just a year in the 10th Parliament after Moroto woman Mp Anne Logiel and Toroma County Mp Cyrus Amodoi Imalingat.  Unbelievably, in Uganda 16 women die every day from childbirth-related complications according to the latest official figures from the National health survey.
About last two months back the same fallen MP survived an accident on Jinja road.
