Disney actress Nikita Pearl Waligwa has died at 15 years of age.
She battled through health issues since she was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2016, and recently sought treatment in India as local doctors were unable to facilitate the proper equipment.
A financial funding campaign was created to support Pearl and her family in seeking the proper treatment route, however, the campaign was sadly not enough.
The 15-year-old starred in Queen of Katwe, a Disney film, where she played the friend of the chess prodigy, Phiona Mutesi.
Rest in Peace.
