KAMPALA – Officials and close friends close to the Kampala Capital City Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago have come out to dismiss false reports claiming that he is dead.
According to Lukwago’s deputy Ms. Doreen Nyanjura, the Lord Mayor who is currently admitted at the Nairobi Hospital in Kenya is responding to medication despite still being weak.
“There are people who have made it a preoccupation to announce others dead, from January to December this is all they do,” Doreen Nyanjura strongly noted.
“If they don’t announce those who are alive dead, they confidently declare who is next in the line of death!” She added.
Implying that Lukwago is still alive, Nyanjura urged Ugandans to be empathetic and consider how devastating false reports of one’s relative’s death can be.
“Do these sadists ever consider the pain, the psychological torture they put on those who may be sick but with a hope of recovering?” the deputy Lord Mayor wondered.
“Do they ever consider the pain, torture and anxiety they cause the family members? Guys, this isn’t funny any more!”
Nyanjura was joined by Lukwago’s personal assistant Kintu who as well strongly dismissed the false death reports.
“It is with no doubt that my boss and City Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago is unwell and was referred for further treatment and management,” Kintu noted.
Kintu further urged Ugandans to save the Lord mayor’s father of the trauma carried by fake news.
The Lord mayor’s Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party’s deputy secretary for administration Harold Kaija also set strongly refuted the fake news and set the record straight noting that the Lord Mayor is still alive.
“OMULOODI [Lord Mayor] is Alive and not in any danger,” said Kaija. “Those spreading bad news that he is dead are our enemies,” he added.
Lukwago was over the weekend rushed back to Nairobi following the recent incident when he collapsed during the requiem mass of the late Archbishop of Kampala Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga at Rubaga Cathedral.
