KAMPALA. Former Democratic Party (DP) president John Ssebaana Kizito has been admitted to Nakasero Hospital in critical condition sources say.
Sources close to the 83-year-old veteran politician fear he could have suffered a stroke after nursing a litany of illnesses in the recent past.
The DP stalwart is a renowned businessman and economist with political activity dating back to pre-Independence. He succeeded Nasser Ssebagala as DP president in 2005 and held Uganda’s oldest political party together until 2010 when he stepped down and was succeeded by Norbert Mao.
In 2006, Ssebaana challenged President Museveni’s stronghold on power in the February 23 Presidential Election.
