The Press Secretary in the Office of the Speaker, Sam Obbo has broken the silence about the ill state of Speaker Rebecca Kadaga.
In a statement, Obbo says that Kadaga was on Thursday rushed to Nakasero Hospital after she landed from a foreign trip.
“The Speaker Rt Hon Rebecca Kadaga is currently being managed by Doctors at Nakasero Hospital in Kampala, over fatigue-related illness. She was admitted yesterday (Thursday) soon after her return from a hectic working tour to Morocco and the United States of America,” the statement reads.
Sources told the Insider that Kadaga reportedly suffered a stroke upon her return and her state is “worrying.” She is currently in a coma and being managed in the Intensive Care Unit.
Obbo however, insists that Kadaga is fatigued due to her tight schedules.
“Due to the hectic work schedule, fatigue and jetlag, she has had to be admitted in hospital,” Obbo said.
Kadaga was today (Friday) expected to attend the funeral service of late son to Chris Obore, director Communication and Public Affairs at Parliament that was held at St Luke’s Church, Ntinda. She was represented by Usuk County MP Peter Ogwang who is also a parliamentary commissioner.
