First Deputy Prime Minister Gen. Moses Ali has dismissed reports saying he collapsed and was flown out of the country for treatment.
“Do I look to you like am collapsing?” he told the state-run New Vision in an interview on Thursday.
Ali said he had a duty to tell the public about his health narrating how he was admitted at St. Francis Hospital on May 20th and later discharged on June 7th 2016.
He said he had issues with pressure and diabetes but that they were currently under control.
He has wound resulting out of his diabetic situation on his right leg.
He said a team of medics at Nsambya supervised by Dr. Silver Bahendeka looked after him well before returning to his home in Naguru, a Kampala suburb where he is recovering.
Pointing out the enormous contributions to nation building over the years, the soldier asked the media not to present him in a bad light.
