Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has revealed that he is steadily recovering after being admitted to Nairobi Hospital.
Lukwago was last week flown to Nairobi, Kenya for further treatment days after he collapsed during a requiem mass for the late Kampala Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga.
“I am currently in a stable condition and on course to full recovery, praise be to the Lord of the Universe. 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,” Lukwago said adding that “looking forward to returning home in a couple of days.”
His deputy Doreen Nyanjura said the Lord Mayor was admitted at Nairobi hospital after being diagnosed with acute anaphylaxis which became persistent on treatment.
“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.
