KAMPALA – The former minister of ICT, Mr Aggrey Awori, has scoffed at rumours of his death, saying that he has not even admitted to any hospital of late.
On the evening of Monday, October 28, 2019, reports emerged that Mr Awori, who also once served as Samia-Bugwe North MP, had passed on at Case Hospital.
But the former minister, who crossed to the ruling NRM party from UPC in 2007, said he has been busy with his businesses.
“I’m alive and well. Those are mere rumours. Everything is alright and the family is okay. When people don’t see me, they start assuming I’m dead. If I’m not in Kibamba, find me in Kampala where I do circulation business from,” Awori said.
“I appreciate all friends and family who came out and expressed concern over my health. I also thank Case Clinic for coming out to shed more light on this issue,” he added.
In 2018, Mr Awori, in an interview with the Observer newspaper, said Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert ‘Bobi Wine’ Kyagulanyi stands no chance against President Museveni.
“To get to State House, there are only three streets as long the tenant there is still Museveni. Number one; the ballot box but that one is full of potholes and hurdles. So, taking that avenue is losing even before the journey starts. The other avenue is armed insurrection. He has got the potential to cause trouble for Museveni if he went through an armed revolt,” he said.
