Medical Doctors at Manipal Hospital India have taken Mityana Municipality Member of Parliament Francis Zaake off oxygen support, as relieble sources from his family reveal.
Mr Zaake has been at the specialist hospital for nearly three weeks, seeking treatment following alleged torture he suffered at the hands of security operatives in Arua on August 13.
Although he has largely been on oxygen support in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit since he was brought there, his wife Bridget Namirembe on Wednesday said there has been a remarkable improvement in the MP’s health.
She revealed that he is now able to breathe on his own but with a lot of pain.
“His current situation right now is that he is still unwell with pain around the neck, lower back, head and the lower limbs, he is off oxygen. So, let us hope for the best,” she said in a telephone interview.
Last week, Ms Namirembe revealed that doctors had found foreign substances in the MP’s blood and on Wednesday, she said a blood analysis is currently underway to ensure that the lawmaker receives thorough and complete treatment.
At the time, Zaake spent several months out of the country for treatment and it is believed that the injuries he sustained then were reopened in Arua.Add your comments: Download Our News App Here
