Lukwago was last seen in public earlier this month when he
joined the faithful at Rubaga Cathedral to pray for the late Archbishop
Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga.
While at Church, Lukwago fainted and was helped by his aides
who linked the fainting to
the heat in the church since the use of fans and air conditioners is
discouraged over the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
had also been getting severe abdominal and chest pains and last week he was
referred to Nairobi Hospital for further treatment and management due to
intermittent dizziness among other things.
year, Lukwago who was receiving treatment at Nsambya Hopsital left the country on November 24th to seek further treatment at the Agha Khan hospital in Nairobi after he had been diagnosed with acute anaphylaxis, a severe and
potentially life-threatening allergic reaction that experts say can occur
within seconds or minutes of exposure to something one is allergic to.
Nyanjura says KCCA needs to come up with a medical fund for the City Lord
Mayor. She says the insurance provided by KCCA only covers part of the Lord
Mayor's medical bill and he has to dig into his pocket too.
