HIV positive Ugandan mum and daughter ‘starved to death’ after being told to leave UK
A mum with HIV and her daughter who had been told to leave Britain may have starved to death in desperate poverty.
Lillian Oluk, 36, and her two-year-old daughter Lynne Mutumba were found dead in their one-bedroom flat.
A harrowing inquest was told there was no medical reason for their deaths but various examinations suggested Lillian was suffering from malnutrition and starvation and little Lynne had been dehydrated.
According to UK Mirror,they had no food in the house and no possessions other than the clothes on their back, the court heard.Lillian was also not taking her medication for HIV and sickle cell anaemia when they were found at their flat in Gillingham, Kent, on March 14.
But it wasn’t alway like that; until the middle of February, Lillian was buying healthy food for the pair of them using a money pass from social services, she also had a job at LSG Sky Chefs, a company that supplies catering and supplies for airlines, based near Gatwick Airport.
When the bodies were discovered, Lynne was in bed and her mum was on the floor of the bedroom.
The inquest was told that in mid-February she received a letter telling her she was no longer entitled to stay in this country.
