After growing up in privilege, Ms Baguma decided to make the move to Britain to find 'greener pastures' after she found it difficult to find a good job, her brother said. She had been in Scotland for 14 years.
Details of her life emerged as Scottish leader Nicola Sturgeon blamed Ms Baguma's death on Britain's asylum system, calling it 'broken' and 'deeply inhumane'.
A system that allows a patently false claim for asylum from someone who clearly didn't need it drag on for 14 years certainly is pretty broken. But that wasn't what you meant, was it, little Miss Krankie?
The Ugandan had lost her job in Scotland after her leave to remain expired, and was no longer allowed to work.
And back when this story first appeared, the usual suspects stood up and barked and clapped like trained seals, claiming it was a symbol of Britain's 'inhumanity', and how could she afford a flight home, etc, etc, ad infinitum.
'None of us can believe that she died in such circumstances,' Ms Baguma's brother Eric said. 'We have money. We are not poor. If she needed something, all she had to do was ask. It is wrong for British politicians and media to say she was penniless.
'She went to a good school that not all Ugandans can afford. She had everything she needed. We are shocked. Why did she not ask us for help?'
Because she'd had 14 years here draining the taxpayer and gullible charities dry getting help she didn't need, perhaps?
There was a time when she could have earned good money as a whore - you can still do that work even if you have a drink problem.
Yeah, I know that prostitution is legal, it's soliciting and brothel keeping that aren't, but brothels are a way to keep whores safe from punters, and with only one pimp to pay, the girls are better off.
I wonder how many other ponces like Baguma there are currently resident in the UK? My guess based on the continual stories that come out about migrants coming here and poncing would be a hell of a lot.
I'm surprised that fishwoman didn't invoke the weary spirit of William Wallace: she turns my stomach. I don't want to be unnecessarily cruel but the lady was an economic migrant, not an asylum seeker and so, I presume, had bent the rules to stay in Britain in the first place. I'm convinced that there is more to this story than the DM's awful webpage reveals.
"We have money. We are not poor."
No matter how destitute you may be, you should think twice before giving your bank details to a Ugandan, allegedly.
Alcohol dependency and liver failure. Who would have thought that?
Where was the child's father? Is it a Ugandan cultural thing that the men bugger off as soon as they have made their woman pregnant? I think we should be told, or at least, our social services should be told so they can ask for more money.
Pense, when we had a situation where the majority of parents were married before having children or at least the fathers married the girls that they impregnated in order to prevent shame on both mother and child, social pressures both from within and without kept West Indian and African British men honest and subtly forced them to provide for their children. 'No man is going near me unless they are properly churched' ie moral was what I heard from Afro-Brit women in my earlier life when I grew up in a racially mixed area, an area that had traditionally for at least a century been somewhat racially mixed.
Men in these communities were known to be fickle and in some cases a bit dodgy and flighty so families pressured men to do the right thing. This flightiness may be cultural from a long way back or may well have been a hangover from slavery where families were broken up, but the women pressured the men to do right by women where possible.
The Welfare State has destroyed that culture. Men no longer have to do the right thing, they can impregnate women and leave the state to pick up the tab. An unintended consequence of seeing single parents as victims needing to be supported has been to infantilise men, men of all races it needs to be said but it is something that especially seems to afflict Afro-Brits. Men are no longer needed for anything apart from conception and this lets men off the hook so to speak and the negative results are plain to see. Welfare state policies have destroyed the two parent Black American family and they have done the same to the Black British families as well. The result of this policy is young men who without a familial male role model, imperfect as he may be, look for male role models elsewhere and too often that elsewhere is a powerful street gang leader.
I was a teenager in the 1970's and I can't recall any of my Black friends not having the involvement of their fathers, even if the parents had separated. These kids went on to successful lives. I compare my old school mates experiences to the lives of the single parented, state supported Black Britons of today and I want to weep at the damage that has been done to them.
I think that to concentrate on absent black fathers may well be right, but absent white fathers are also a problem. In some cases, it isn't the man's fault, because what woman really doesn't care about financial support? And doesn't the state have more money than even a drugs gang boss - or at least, is happier to dole it out?
That doesn't stop black fathers being worse, on the whole.
Anon. Fatherless families are indeed a problem all round regardless of race but it is a problem that has afflicted a lot of Black British families very negatively. Society needs to find some sort of balance where women are not forced to stay with abusive men for financial reasons and get some sort of community support to get out, but also where single parenthood is not advantaged.
"Yeah, I know that prostitution is legal, it's soliciting and brothel keeping that aren't..."
How many do we need, though?
"...the lady was an economic migrant, not an asylum seeker..."
"Where was the child's father?"
Giving an interview to the 'Mail' just yesterday! And you won't believe it, but he's an 'asylum seeker' too!
What are the odds?
"I compare my old school mates experiences to the lives of the single parented, state supported Black Britons of today and I want to weep at the damage that has been done to them."
Also spot on. And I can see no sign of it changing for the better, either.
"And doesn't the state have more money than even a drugs gang boss - or at least, is happier to dole it out?"
Once again, spot on. A situation that must be reversed. But who has the political will to do it?
