The Parliament of Uganda has sent Kawempe North Member of Parliament, Muhammad Ssegirinya, to Germany for specialised medical treatment due to lung tumors. This comes after the government promised to clear his medical bills for his earlier treatment at Mengo Hospital.
Alex Luswa Luwemba, Personal Assistant to Ssegirinya, confirmed the information, saying that the MP’s health has been worsening. In a statement before the flight MP Ssegirinya said he would make a stopover at Nairobi Hospital for extra examinations before proceeding to Germany.
“The doctors also found out that I have wounds on my lungs. I have difficulty breathing, and my stomach also hurts a lot during the night, I feel so hot. I also have hypertension,” he said.
