Over the weekend, President Yoweri Museveni spoke out on reports alleging that he was terminally ill and was “about to die”.
Social media reports drew from an injury the president sustained on his right hand.
Pictures taken from his Japan tour showed the president’s hand bandaged without any explanation of what had happened to him.
While addressing the NRM National Executive Committee (NEC) at State House Entebbe on Saturday, Museveni advised NRM members to ignore the report.
“Ignore reports that I am soon dying,” Museveni said explaining that his hand was hit by one of his car doors.
The president has always emphasised that he had not time to fall sick and that in any case he is still strong like a 30-year old man.
