Kampala, Uganda – In a fiery address to the nation, President Yoweri Museveni dismissed rumours circulating in neighbouring Kenya about his health condition.
Taking a no-nonsense stance, Museveni lashed out at those responsible for spreading false and misleading reports, urging them to check their facts before jumping to conclusions.
The charismatic leader, known for his direct and assertive style, left no stone unturned in setting the record straight.
Museveni’s frustration was evident as he debunked the claims of being admitted to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and needing oxygen support. With a tinge of sarcasm, he questioned the motives behind such rumors, stating,
“I noticed some few individuals from, I think, Kenya, saying that I was in ICU. If I were in ICU, the government would inform the country. What is there to hide?” His words echoed throughout the nation, with citizens eagerly waiting for the punchline.
Setting the record straight, Museveni revealed that during his battle with Covid-19, he never required intensive care.
He humorously remarked, “I have not been to bed as a sick man in the house here except for sleeping, let alone being in a hospital bed, whether ICU or otherwise.” His wit and candidness captivated the audience, instilling a renewed sense of trust and confidence.
Updating the nation on his recovery journey, the President detailed the symptoms he experienced, emphasizing the manageable nature of his condition.
“Except for Tuesday and Wednesday when there was a mild flu-like fever, I only had some drowsiness on Thursday and a mild headache at night.”
He further emphasized that all these symptoms had subsided by Friday, June 9, leaving him with enough energy to tackle paperwork. Museveni’s resilience and unwavering commitment to his duties were on full display.
Interestingly, Museveni’s health update coincided with statements made by Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary (CS) for Health, Susan Nakhumicha, who categorically dismissed reports of a COVID-19 outbreak in Kenya.
Nakhumicha assured the nation that surveillance reports indicated a safe situation, refuting the misleading information circulating in the media.
She attributed the increase in flu-like symptoms to the prevailing cold season, urging Kenyans to take necessary precautions such as getting flu vaccines, sanitizing, and wearing masks.
The synchronized efforts of both leaders to address public health concerns showcased their commitment to transparency and dispelling baseless rumors.
This united front sent a powerful message, reminding citizens to rely on verified sources and to avoid becoming victims of sensationalism.
