I AM IN STABLE CONDITION, SAYS LUKWAGO IN NAIROBI HOSPITAL AFTER DEATH CLAIMS
By JC Etyang
Kampala mayor Erias Lukwago has said he is in a stable condition at The Nairobi Hospital. The Lord Mayor said he will soon return home after being admitted to The Nairobi Hospital last week. “Currently in a stable condition and on course to full recovery, praise be to the Lord of the Universe,” the mayor posted on his official Facebook page on Friday.
“I will always be grateful to the committed team of physicians and health workers at The Nairobi Hospital led by Professor Godfrey Lule and to you all, dear friends, for your spirited concern and prayers. Looking forward to returning home in a couple of days, In Sha Allah. God bless you all.” Lukwago posted the message alongside a photo showing him engaged in what he called a healthy walk at the compound of The Nairobi Hospital.
The Lord Mayor posted the Facebook message after social media users claimed he had died while receiving treatment in Nairobi. His deputy Doreen Nyanjura on Friday took to social media where she told off people claiming that Lukwago had died. She said it was unfortunate that in Uganda there are people who do not wish others week by announcing their death while they are still alive.
“There are people who have made it a preoccupation to announce others’ dead, from January to December this is all they do. If they don’t announce those who are alive dead, they confidently declare who is next in the line of death!” Nyanjura said.
“Do these sadists ever consider the pain, the psychological torture they put on those who may be sick but with a hope of recovering? Do they ever consider the pain, torture and anxiety they cause the family members? Guys, this isn’t funny anymore!”
Lukwago was last week rushed for treatment at The Nairobi Hospital after developing health complications. His departure for treatment in Nairobi last week was the second after he was flown again to Kenya’s capital to seek for medical attention five months earlier in November last 2020.
The mayor in late last year received treatment at The Nairobi Hospital after suffering acute anaphylaxis, an allergic reaction to some foods, medicine and insect stings. Doctors said the condition results in the overreaction of the immune system which brings about the release of chemicals, subjecting one to shock which causes a drop in blood pressure and difficulty in breathing.
