Lord Mayor Lukwago’s health makes progress in Nairobi

The Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago has registered tremendous improvement following an intensive and comprehensive medical management, his Deputy Doreen Nyanjura has said.

In a statement released on Wednesday morning, the Deputy Lord Mayor says her boss’s tremendous improvement follows a collaboration of efforts between Aga Khan Hospital and Nairobi hospital where he is currently admitted.

She noted that Professor Godfrey Lule, a Ugandan consultant physician and Gastroenterologist who is highly sought after in Kenya and Professor Muhindi Wanjugu a consultant Physician and chest expert are leading the medical team that is working on the Lord Mayor.

“We continue to extend our thanks to the team in Nairobi, the people of Kampala and Uganda in general for your efforts, sympathies and prayers as we hope for and look forward to the Lord Mayor's quick recovery and return to Kampala” Nyanjura writes.

The Lord Mayor was airlifted to Nairobi about two weeks ago after he was diagnosed with acute Anaphylaxis and is yet to return to the country.

“Anaphylaxis (an-a-fi-LAK-sis) is a serious, life-threatening allergic reaction. The most common anaphylactic reactions are to foods, insect stings, medications and latex. If you are allergic to a substance, your immune system overreacts to this allergen by releasing chemicals that cause allergy symptoms.”
