Erias Lukwago

Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has been flown to Nairobi, Kenya for further treatment days after he collapsed during a requiem mass for the late Kampala Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga.

His deputy Doreen Nyanjura said on Sunday that despite attending several medical facilities in Kampala including Lubaga Hospital, Platinum Hospital, Case Hospital, Norvic Hospital among others, Lukwago didn’t feel better.

“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, Norvic Hospital among others, the Lord Mayor was referred to Nairobi Hospital for further management,” Nyanjura said.

She added that Lukwago arrived safely on Sunday morning and was checked into the hospital.

“Consequently, he traveled to Nairobi earlier this week, arrived safely and was checked into Nairobi Hospital.”

“I spoke to the Lord Mayor today (sunday) morning, he is stable and undergoing numerous tests. The office of the Lord Mayor appreciates your continued prayers and well wishes,” she noted.

Last year, Lukwago was admitted at Nairobi hospital after being diagnosed with acute anaphylaxis which became persistent on treatment.
