The Uganda Sports Fraternity is in mourning following the death of former Rugby Cranes coach Robert Seguya.

Seguya who also captained the national team, succumbed to Leukaemia on Tuesday night at the age of 43.

At the start of November, Seguya was cleared of Leukaemia according to his medical tests from the Cancer Institute.

But he started feeling unwell on Sunday and was rushed back to Mulango hospital where he breathed his last.

There were many fundraising drives earlier by the Rugby Fraternity when he was diagnosed with Leukaemia to support his bone marrow Transplant and many will feel that they at least did their part in trying to fight with him during his battle.

Soggy won the Uganda Cup seven times with Heathens and played for Uganda in Rugby 7s at the Commonwealth Games in 2006 and 2010 among other tournaments.

Besides the National team, he also coached Heathens, Buffaloes and Jinja Hippos
