Bobi Wine's physical state contradicts Museveni's sentiments

23, Aug 2018

President Yoweri Museveni has described as “fake news” the reported worrying health situation of Kyaddondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine, dismissing calls for specialised treatment for the MP. In his latest missive released via his official social media accounts on Sunday August 19 evening, Mr. Museveni who attacked the Nation Media Group outlets – Daily Monitor and the NTV for “reporting fake news“, said he had talked to army doctors who confirmed to him that the legislator who has been in military custody since last Monday, was fine. The President also alleged that Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake, tortured during arrest and dumped at Lubaga hospital on Friday where he has been reported on oxygen, “had escaped from police custody” and was a wanted man! “I decided to check with Army doctors because, being a disciplined Army, UPDF doctors always take precautions in such situations. Bobi Wine had already been seen by doctors in Arua, Gulu and Kampala. He has no head or chest injuries or bone fractures, they informed me,” Mr Museveni said.
