News about his demise went to public yesterday evening. Gicondo,55, has succumbed to a disease. He has been living in Australia with his family for one year.

Relatives have told IGIHE that Gicondo has been sick for quite some days and got in critical condition when he learnt about the death of his brother, Dr. Kigabo.

“He has been sick but his health conditions deteriorated when he heard about the death of his elder brother [Dr. Kigabo] that he went to coma from that time,” his elder brother, Pastor Irakiza Rweribamba Isaac has told IGIHE.

“He spent some days being unable to speak. Later on, he could speak and stay silent. As he slept yesterday, people went to check on him and found him dead,” he added.

Gicondo dies at a time when his family was arranging burial of his elder brother Dr. Kigabo who breathed the last on 15th January 2021.
