NAIROBI! Lord Mayor Lukwago In Stable Condition – Nyanjura

By Chief Spy Reporter

Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago has been rushed to Nairobi for treatment after developing complications.

“Following a recurring dizziness, persistent abdominal discomfort and severe chest pain despite attending several medical facilities in Kampala including Lubaga Hospital, Platinum Hospital, Case Hospital, Norvik Hospital among others, the Lord Mayor was referred to Nairobi Hospital for further management,” Lukwago’s deputy Doreen Nyanjura said on Sunday.

This is the second time he is being flown to Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, for specialized treatment in a period of about five months having spent two weeks in Nairobi hospital in November last year.

However, Nyanjura said she “spoke to the Lord Mayor today (Sunday) morning and he is stable and undergoing numerous tests.”

Last year, Lukwago received treatment at Nairobi hospital after detection of acute anaphylaxis, an allergic reaction to some foods, insects, stings and medicine. 

Medics say, this condition causes the immune system to overreact to the allergen by releasing chemical, subjecting one to shock causing a drop in blood pressure and blockage in breath.

On Monday last week during the requiem mass for deceased Kampala archbishop, Dr. Cyprian Lwanga, Lukwago was evacuated from Lubaga cathedral after his health reportedly deteriorated.

He was helped out of the church by two men including his personal Assistant Elvis Kintu.

His sugar levels went down, according to sources. Hours later on the same day, Nyanjura issued a statement that her boss had suffered “discomfort” and was taken to Lubaga hospital where he received first aid but was discharged and “told to go home and rest.”

The minister, however, warned against acts of malpractice.

“This time, all those who neglect their duty in reporting or preventing malpractices will also be arrested and charged in the courts of law. Punishment for offenses under exam malpractices have been increased from six months imprisonment to five years. This might also include a fine of five million shillings or both – the fine and imprisonment,” she noted adding, “This should therefore act as a serious warning to those who intend to get involved in any form of malpractices.”

Like in the previous sittings, the minister revealed that all candidates with special needs have been given extra support to enable them do their exams.

On top of this, candidates with advanced pregnancies as well as breast feeding mothers have also been given an extra 45 minutes.

“We thank UNEB for all these interventions meant to support all candidates,” she said.
