The Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago is steadily getting better as he continues treatment at Nairobi Hospital in Kenya.
Lukwago was flown to Nairobi last week, following an episode at Rubaga Cathedral, when he collapsed during Mass celebrating the life of Late Archbishop Lwanga.
However, rumors have been spreading on social media indicating that his condition was critical, while others announced him dead.
On Friday morning, Lukwago took to Facebook to tell his supporters and friends that he was doing well and on the road to full recovery.
“Having a health walk within the confines of The Nairobi Hospital. 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. Looking forward to returning home in a couple of days, In Sha Allah. God bless you all” Lukwago said.
This is the second time Lukwago is being flown to Nairobi since last year. Tests indicated that he has bronchospasm, a condition that occurs when the airways suddenly and involuntarily contract and convulse making it hard to breathe causing wheezing.
