KISUBI— Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has on Saturday afternoon paid a visit to former Presidential Press Secretary Joseph Tamale Mirundi who is admitted at Kisubi Hospital.
Bobi Wine said Mirundi is in a very serious but stable state of health.
Quoting Mirundi’s caretakers, Bobi Wine said “he has made some improvement” but “It is definitely very painful seeing a man who has given so much service to this government and President Museveni in such a state, and yet he has to meet his own bills in a private health facility”.
“The government he worked so hard for, having failed to set up proper public health facilities is not even keen on sending him for specialised treatment at such a critical time. Perhaps this is because he now disagrees with them every so often! We have seen how they treat those who are in favour with them; – a simple ailment and they are on the next plane for treatment in countries which have their act together.”
He also asked the public to disregard the rumour that circulated earlier that Mirundi was airlifted to Kenya but “I call upon all of us to send him prayers”
As we demand for a better healthcare system for every citizen, Bobi Wine also challenged the government not to watch on as a senior citizen like Tamale faces a critical health condition.
“It is fair and expedient that he gets access to specialised medical diagnosis and treatment.”
