The Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) family has learnt with shock of the death of veteran WOI (Rtd) Stanley Sempala who passed away on Tuesday 14th November 2017.
WOI (Rtd) Stanley Sempala fondly known as “Sgt Kifulugunyu” joined the NRA liberation struggle in the early 80’s and participated in the bush war.
However, he remains specifically remembered for boosting the morale of the fighters through his patriotic music. UPDF and the entire country had continued to enjoy his patriotic songs to motivate soldiers and the general public.
As a sign of appreciation for his services, the President of the Republic of Uganda, during the 31st Anniversary of marking liberation day on 26th January 2017 in Masindi District, awarded WOI (Rtd) Stanley Sempala the Luwero Triangle Medal.
His memories will live with us forever especially through his music.
May God strengthen his family as they come to terms with this loss.
Fair thee well WOI (Rtd) Stanley Sempala aka Sgt Kifulugunyu.
