Local socialite and singer Nalongo Don Zella has turned to God to save the father of his children Jim who has been in coma for over three weeks.

In 2016, Don Zella publicly revealed how the father of her three kids was battling with Parkinson’s disease.

She mentioned how he had been diagnosed with the central nervous system disorder in 2012 and was not doing well.

“My husband is a victim of Parkinson disease which has claimed the life of Muhammad Ali. He is a loving father of 3 kids. Parkinson is a scary disease,” Don Zella said at the time.

On 1st February, 2022 the socialite shared an update on her ailing hubby through social media where she posted:

“Any bad news to the kids is really bad news but preparing them to the bad news is the worst feeling. Mukama yamba, embera sinungi.”

She later deleted the photo of her husband on the sickbed for privacy reasons as she thanked her fans for reaching out with messages of hope.

I have removed my husband’s picture post due to family reasons and privacy of his condition. I appreciate everyone who has reached out to me and my kids.

I appreciate the overwhelming massages and calls. We still need your prayers for taata wabaana to pull through. Anderman daku, you are a great man.

Don Zella

We keep the family in our prayers!

  1. My husband was diagnosed of Parkinsons disease 2 years ago, when he was 59. He had a stooped posture, tremors, right arm does not move and also a pulsating feeling in his body. He was placed on Senemet for 8 months and then Siferol was introduced and replaced the Senemet, during this time span he was also diagnosed with dementia. He started having hallucinations, lost touch with. Suspecting it was the medication I took him off the Siferol (with the doctor’s knowledge)  him on PD natural herbal formula we ordered from TREE OF LIFE HEALTH CLINIC, his symptoms totally declined over a 3 weeks use of the TREE OF LIFE HEALTH Parkinson’s disease natural herbal formula. He is now  almost 61 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed!  (w w w. treeoflifeherbalclinic .com)
