The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga will be discharged on Saturday, Watchdog Uganda can exclusively reveal.
Kadaga was airlifted to Nairobi for specialised treatment after suffering a fatigue-related illness. She was first admitted to Nakasero Hospital in Kampala on March 22.
At the weekend, Kadaga, also Kamuli District Woman legislator, assured Ugandans that she is now feeling better and was looking forward to “be discharged soon”.
“I am glad to report that due to God’s Mercy and untiring efforts of doctors in Uganda and Kenya, I do now have a better bill of health,” Kadaga said, before rebuking media reports describing her as extremely unwell and was due to be flown to Spain.
“…contrary to rumours in the press and social media, I am neither in Spain nor in critical condition,” she said.
Now, sources at Aga Khan Hospital have told Watchdog Uganda that upon discharge on Saturday, she will be flown back to Uganda.
“The Speaker is in better shape and she will be discharged this Saturday,” a source at the Aga Khan Hospital, in Nairobi told Watchdog Uganda.
On Tuesday, April 9, this website reported that three high-ranking female politicians from Busoga region had been bounced at the hospital for trying to visit Kadaga.
Salaamu Musumba, Kasule Lumumba and Specioza Wandira Kazibwe had lined up to go visit Kadaga on Saturday but were bounced.
Lumumba is the NRM Secretary General while Musumba is the opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) vice chairman for eastern Uganda.
Kazibwe is a former Vice President of Uganda.
