According to the deputy lord mayor Doreen Nyanjura, Lukwago was discharged today morning and is expected back in Uganda on Monday, December 7. Elvis Kintu Nsonyi, the lord mayor political assistant also dismissed rumors about Lukwago saying that he was recovering and in good state.
“I have just talked to the lord mayor, he is recovering and in good state, so treat any news being circulated as false and with the ultimate contempt it deserves,” said Kintu.
Lukwago was last month admitted at Nairobi hospital after being diagnosed with acute anaphylaxis which became persistent on treatment.
Three days ago, the office of the lord mayor issued a statement saying that Lukwago has registered tremendous improvement following an intensive and comprehensive medical management.
‘This tremendous improvement follows a collaboration of efforts between Aga Khan hospital and Nairobi hospital as professor Godfrey Lule, a Ugandan consultant physician and gastroenterologist and professor Muhindi Wanjugu a consultant physician and chest expert are leading the medical team that is working on the lord mayor,” read a statement issued on December 2.
Lukwago’s discharge confirmation follows a report about two people who earlier on fainted at the burial of Sheik Nuhu Muzaata at Kigogwa village in Gombe division of Nansana municipality in Wakiso district following romours indicating that he had also passed on.
