riseActor Joseph Olita, famous for his portrayal of Ugandan President Idi Amin in the movie ‘Rise and Fall of Idi Amin’, is in mourning, following the loss of his mother.

According to the Star newspaper, Olita released the news of his loss on Facebook, where he wrote, “Hi my FB friends, may I inform you that my beloved mother, Regina Oduma, passed on yesterday and she will be buried on Saturday, 31-05-14.”

Olita has not had any screen success after his big movie, and there were reports that he had gone broke. I hope there’s no truth in that though.
