Kamala passed away on August 9th, 2020. He was 70-years-old and left behind a legendary career full of memories.

The pro wrestling world remembered Kamala after his passing. It was a sad moment as so many shared their favorite memories of the Ugandan Giant.

Jason King reports that he spoke with Kamala’s wife who informed him that the pro wrestling legend tested positive for COVID-19 on the Wednesday prior to his passing. He was in good spirits, and then went into cardiac arrest on the day he died.

Spoke w/ Kamala’s wife. He tested positive Wednesday for COVID which he likely contracted from one of his numerous weekly visits to the dialysis center. Was hospitalized Wednesday night & seemed fine & in good spirits this morning. Went into cardiac arrest & passed this afternoon


This is an incredibly sad story, but at least he was apparently in good spirits until the end. Kamala brought smiles to fans’ faces for years and he will be missed.

RIP Kamala
