Uganda’s Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake’s condition has deteriorated .
Zaake’s medical team has been stepped up after he quickly relapsed upon being taken off life-support machines on Tuesday 11th September.
Zaake’s wife Bridget Namirembe said her husband has been on life support since they arrived at the facillity in India about a week ago.
“For 11 days since we arrived here,the MP has been in intensive care unit on life support machines. Today he had been removed from intensive care unit, but after only moments, his health deteriorated and he was taken back.” She said
She added that she rarely sees her husband saying in every 24 hours, she sees him for only 60 seconds at 11.30am and 6.30pm.
She went on to affirm that doctors are reporting foreign substances were found in her husbands blood giving credit to claims by Bobi Wine that they were injected with an unknown substance while in custody.
“Apart from the known bodily injuries, the doctors are also talking about foreign substances in his blood.” She added
She said the doctors however have not disclosed what the substance is. “all reports are issued at discharge. So I can’t tell what the foreign substances are.” She added
There have been allegations about both Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine) and Mr Zaake were injected with suspicious substances after they were arrested by security personnel following chaos on the last day of campaigns in the Arua Municipality parliamentary by-elections on August 13.
The two MPs and others were arrested after allegations of stoning President Museveni vehicle and have since been charged with treason, inciting violence and malicious damage to property.
Mr Zaake was granted police bond before he was allowed to fly out while Kyagulanyi was charged and bailed.
On Wedneday, Ms Namirembe said specialist neurologists and physiotherapists are attending to her husband.
