MP Zaake health condition worsens

The health condition of Mityana municipality member of parliament Francis Zaake has reportedly worsened after falling off his hospital bed in Lubaga hospital.

Zaake was later transferred to Nsambya hospital for a scan after suffering complications in the spine, chest and stomach. Julius Katongole, a relative who has been taking care of the MP since Friday said that Zaake's condition had started normalizing.

He, however, says that Zaake's condition worsened on Sunday night when he fell off his hospital bed and hurt his neck.

"The situation of Hon Zaake is not good, we transferred him to Nsambya hospital. When we reached there, the doctors told us they don’t have medication to be given to him. Now we’re fidgeting to take him abroad. The reason why we want to take him abroad is because here at Lubaga they don’t have those machines for operations." Katongole said. 

He said that while at Nsambya hospital, Zaake was given painkillers on grounds that the hospital cannot manage his condition and that it would be best if he's transferred abroad for treatment. Ironically, President Yoweri Museveni said Zaake who has been on life support, escaped from custody after being arrested last week on Monday.

Zaake was arrested alongside over 30 others on allegations that they stoned Museveni's motorcade in Arua. Zaake was dumped at Lubaga hospital by soldiers in worrying condition that triggered protests in his constituency.

Police spokesperson Emilian Kayima said Zaake escaped from Arua regional referral hospital and was not dumped at Lubaga hospital as alleged by his family. The arrested suspects were charged with treason and remanded until August 30 in Arua main hospital. They were reportedly tortured while under detention.

Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi who was also arrested in Arua, and separately charged with unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition in an army court, was also said to have been tortured.

Kyagulanyi was remanded to Makindye military barracks until August 23. His continued detention triggered off daily protests in several parts of the city, Mukono, Mbarara, Mityana among others.

Gwok the ganda are the last ones so he can take his crown forever since all the acholis and langis were dealt a blow ages ago.

These dayz they are scared stiff.

The Acholis, may be. The Langi are strategically smart. The Langi know when to throw a stone or not.

By the way, where does your tribes stand regarding to this issue, assuming that you answer to one of those labels which mean nothing to me personally?

Again and again, you cannot generate violence and get away with it.

There is no immunity for "Honorables" who instead using political ways to fight for their beliefs whatever, resort to violence, break of law, lawlessness and armed resistance.

The sitting government has been duly elected and recognized by all Ugandans and the world.

So if you are not happy you simply do not cross boundaries of laws and do as you please.If you do, then you get counterreaction which we are all seenig unfortunately in Uganda.

Instead fighting for better lives of their people those MPs want to take power illegally.

"Museveni said Zaake who has been on life support, escaped from custody after being arrested last week on Monday"
40+ years ago, a man who pronounced himself Life President of the Republic of Uganda, arrested the then Archbishop with other high ranking government officials , allegedly on charges that arms had been found at the house of the Archbishop and that they were planning to overthrow his government by force of arms.

It is claimed that the arms were either planted by the army or by rebels who were fighting the government, who then went on to tip the government.

After a public humiliation , the trio were found dead and the dictator claimed that they had died in a car accident after trying to overpower the driver who was taking them to detention.

The "injured driver" and the "damaged car were displayed as proof.

Fast forward to 40 years later and another self proclaimed life president is using the same script of a leader he once called a "swine".

You are talking nonsense remase the other day mayiga condemned the torture. Grow up.

YES , WAMESE never ceases to spew his nonsense whenever the opportunity arises.

He knows nothing about one "holding ones counsel" til all, or at least sufficient evidence is in.

YES, it is well and good to issue a statement, but no matter how much we talk, all this does not faze M 7 one bit, he will not lose his sleep for even 5 minutes.

This is the reason he respects KONY more than the whole UGANDA parliament , judiciary, opposition or any one else.

Thankfully KABAKA and MENGO have their heads and hearts in the right place , unlike our WAMESE who has his brains in another part of his anatomy, somewhere as Tyson said, where the sun does not shine.

"In other words, he chose war against peace. By now he clearly knows who M7 is, why continue supporting M7? Kabaka Mutebi, you have betrayed us!"

I am absolutely sure, without a shadow of doubt, that you have never heard of the expression/saying ....." sometimes you have got to dine with the enemy......."

Logic of Nonsense - The President said the army had to intervene in the Arua situation to stop women being raped among other ills. That the same also happened in Jinja. Therefore we can logically conclude that:
