The health condition of Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago has tremendously improved following an intensive and comprehensive medical management, his deputy Nyanjura Doreen has said.
According to Nyanjura, the improvement is attributed to a collaboration of efforts between Aga Khan Hospital and Nairobi hospital where he is currently admitted.
She adds that Professor Godfrey Lule, a Ugandan consultant physician and Gastroenterologist who is highly sought after in Kenya and Professor Muhindi Wanjugu a consultant Physician and chest expert are leading the medical team that is working on Mr Lukwago.
“We continue to extend our thanks to the team in Nairobi, the people of Kampala and Uganda in general for your efforts, sympathies and prayers as we hope for and look forward to the Lord Mayor’s quick recovery and return to Kampala,” Ms Nyanjura said in a statement on Wednesday.
Lukwago was flown to Nairobi, Kenya about a week ago for further management after reportedly spending some time at Rubaga and Mulago hospitals in Uganda.
Before he fell sick, Lukwago was campaigning to retain his position as Kampala Lord Mayor in next year’s elections. He was nominated late September to contest in the polls on the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) ticket.
