The speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga has been admitted to Nakasero hospital and reportedly is under Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Her principal press secretary, Sam Obbo says Kadaga got admitted yesterday due to fatigue-related illness. According to Obbo, due to the hectic schedule, Kadaga returned home from Morocco and United States fatigued and jet-lagged.

According to NilePost, Museveni switched route and dashed to the hospital to check on Kadaga after he was informed of her 'critical condition'. He reportedly went into the hospital almost alone, leaving most of his security personnel behind.

Are these travel abroad really, really necessary? What do we gain from these excessive travels, except for the sole purpose of 'per-diem'.

We should learn to identify the needs of 'wanainchi' in pursuing these travels. If they are really necessary, technocrats should do so in order to bring back the fruits, otherwise just sitting there like a 'pedestrian won't do.

Sometimes we get carried away with these joy rides! at least now she will realise that with such frequent air travels, one risks DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis), with perilous results.

Sincerely if God intended for human beings to fly as frequently as the Right Hon Speaker does then He would have given us wings!

It is ironic that we not only foot a very costly bill to indulge the Speaker's lavish lifestyle but now we taxpayers also have to meet the cost of treating her for her excessive behaviour.

Anyway I wish her quick recovery and can only hope that this will be the point when the scales drop from her eyes and Saul becomes Paul!

Quoting Ugthinker:
This divide created by our leaders is so painful! I always say that not all may get that chance to be flown out when in need.

Therefore, functional hospitals wouldn’t serve us only, but even them in the event that circumstances don’t allow them to fly! Hope the rest can pick lessons here.

In other words Ugthinker, it is high time Ugandans fought the social service segregation and VIP mentality by few of our countrymen and women.

It is a social contract that we all pay taxes, so that the limited national resources and services are consolidated and satisfactorily redistributed.

But our leaders are shamelessly arrogating themselves into grabbing consuming unfair share of our collective efforts.

In other words, if any Ugandan is not satisfied with what is agreed upon, and want specialized treatment, whatever he/she must pay from own pockets.

In my angry opinion e.g., any public servant who earns more than Shs.10 million a month, must buy, fuel and/or service his own car.

Any public servant who earns more than Shs.10 million a month, can afford medical insurance, therefore can afford specialized treatment.

It is high Ugandans got rid off the kawukumi and other parasites from their backs.

In other words, while millions of Ugandans live in hell here in Uganda many of our leaders like Mr. M7, is in office/State House fighting only for himself and family.
