His Excellency the President of republic of Uganda Yoweri Museveni has this afternoon rushed and paid a courtsey visit to Nakasero hospital where the speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga is admitted apparently in critical condition.
Museveni who was on the way to State House Nakasero was informed on Kadaga’s health condition, prompting him to switch convoy route and dash to the facility.
The president on his arrival at the facility moved in alone, leaving most of his security team outside.
Sources at the facility have it that Kadaga was about to be flown out for further medical attention this morning, but Museveni’s visit could have caused the delay.
The speaker reportedly fell ill Thursday evening and was rushed to Nakasero hospital where she was placed under intensive watch.
According to a statement from Kadaga’s Principal Press Secretary Sam Obbo, the speaker is only affected by fatigue.
“The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga, is currently being managed by doctors at Nakasero Hospital, over fatigue. She was admitted yesterday soon after her return from a10-day hectic working tour to Morocco and the United States of America,” the statement reads in part.
“While abroad, she steadfastly advocated for better policies for women and children, in Uganda and across the globe. Due to the hectic work schedule, fatigue and jet lag, she has had to be admitted in hospital,” the statement adds.Add your comments: Download Our News App Here
