Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukago was yesterday placed under six tests in Nairobi hospital to find the exact cause of his persistent pain.
His lead physician, a Ugandan who has worked in Nairobi hospital for over 20 years, led a team of other senior specialists to do the checks.
The medical checks included the amount of fluids in his body, the functioning of the veins within the stomach and the kidney.
Lukwago was hospitalized in Nairobi after, according to his deputy, Doreen Nyanjura had been treated in four hospitals in Uganda but his condition was not changing, a statement that worried supporters who started to allege the ailment could have poison.
“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 on Sunday Morning.
A family source told Newsday on Tuesday morning the results from the various tests were not yet known but that the condition of Mr. Lukwago was stabilizing. Lukwago’s wife, Nalongo is taking care of him.
In a space of four months Lukwago has been two Nairobi twice with the first time being November 24, 2020.
On Sunday, for Leader of opposition and Kasese Woman MP Winnie Kiiza paid a visit to Lukwago in the hospital and encouraged him to be firm.
