Rubaga South Member of Parliament Kato Lubwama needs another Shs140 million to undergo another surgical operation on his large intestine colon which is infected with cancer.
The legendary comedian and singer has been at Medipal International Hospital in Kampala since April this year with complex Medical problems.
Last month he had a successful operation on his coron which had displayed a spot of cancerous cells. According to sources close to the family after the successful operation, Lubwama was advised to stay in hospital as the medics monitored his health condition.
However, in the process of monitoring, doctors diagnosed another cancerous tumour in the exact spot where the last operation was done. Doctors stated that the next operation would cost Kato Lubwama Shs140m since it’s in the same spot which is very dangerous.
During the first encounter, Lubwama would have been operated on earlier but money for it was not in place until his fellow legislators came in to support him.
Doctors have also recommended Lubwama to seek efficient chemotherapy services promptly after the operation in countries with better health system such as India or Australia.
Despite the fact, that he is in need of money Kato Lubwama is one of the Members of Parliament that returned the controversial Shs20m Covid-19 cash that was received by each legislator to help them in fight against the pandemic.
“It’s not comfortable for me to have this money on my bank account, because am not aware of its exact source,” he said.
In 2015, Lubwama underwent a successful heart surgery in India.
