Disney Star Nikita Pearl Waligwa passed away at the age of 15

Disney’s Queen of Katwe star Nikita Pearl Waligwa has passed away at the age of 15 after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. 

Nikita played the role of Gloria in the film. In 2016, she was diagnosed with cancer but a year later she was told that she was cancer-free.

But she was diagnosed with another tumor and died at a hospital in Naalya, Kampala, last night. When she first diagnosed with tumor film director Mira Nair asked the public to help her in her treatment.

Fans took to social media to share tributes to the star.

Matics penned down: “Oh my, oh my. May God grant her eternal peace. She was my best actress in the movie.”

Mukiga added: ‘Rest in peace Pearl Waligwa. You’re in a better place. You will be remembered for the great work you did in Queen of Katwe.’
