Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake’s condition have worsened and likely to be transferred into Intensive Care Unit.
Zaake, who was allegedly brutally tortured, is reportedly on life support machines at Kiruddu Hospital in Makindye Division under police detention.
The youthful legislator was arrested on April 19th 2020 barely a day after he flouted the Presidential directive against distribution of food items to the constituents.
He is accused o violating the social distancing guideline, one of those instituted by the government to curb the spread of Corona Virus.
Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine who visited Zaake in detention at Kiruddu confirmed that the Legislator’s health condition had deteriorated.
On his twitter handle, Kyagulanyi posted that “Hon Zaake’s health condition has worsened. He has now been placed on oxygen at Kiruddu hospital where he is admitted and still under police detention. The doctors are contemplating taking him into the ICU. A Member of Parliament is tortured to near death by regime enforcers!”
Kyagulanyi insists that Zaake was tortured by state operatives attached to the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) and police.
The Mityana Chief Magistrate Elias Kakooza had ordered that Zaake be taken to seek medical attention, before his case would be heard on Tuesday.
He was instead reverted into Police cells in Kireka, in absolute disrespect to the Court order where he has been until this morning when he was reportedly driven to Kiruddu by his security handlers.
