Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago was rushed to Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya in a very critical condition.
The Lord Mayor was referred to Agakhan Hospital in Nairobi to have his condition further handled by Pulmonogists. There are a few Pulmonogists in the country and also, the requisite equipment to handle his situation weren’t available. He has so far undergone all the preliminary tests as the experts continue to monitor his condition.
Despite not revealing details of Lukwago’s health conditions, sources disclose that a few days ago the Lord Mayor has been receiving treatment from Rubaga and Mulago hospitals before he was referred to Nairobi for further treatment.
The Lord Mayor was diagnosed with acute anaphylaxis which became persistent on treatment. While he is not in a critical condition, doctors found it advisable to conduct further examinations and management.
“Following this advice, the Lord Mayor departed yesterday for Nairobi where he arrived safely and has since commenced the necessary medical procedures.
The Office of the Lord Mayor appreciates the overwhelming concerns and sympathies.
We hope for his quick recovery and return to Kampala.
Yours in Service,
DEPUTY LORD MAYOR” – KCCA
Lukwago has been currently campaigning to defend his seat as Kampala Lord Mayor with anticipated stiff competition from independent candidate Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chameleone and National Unity Platform (NUP) flag bearer Nabillah Nagayi.
