The underlying cause of Kusasira’s health ordeal has been attributed to excessive fat accumulation around her heart, resulting in significant breathing challenges. Recognizing the critical nature of her condition, swift action was taken to transport her abroad for specialized treatment, underscoring the gravity of her medical situation.

Amidst the mounting financial burden, efforts are underway among fellow artists and close associates in Kampala to appeal for assistance, including potential support from the government, to alleviate Kusasira’s predicament.
