Nambooze poisoned, collapses but not dead


Nambooze is recuperating at home but not dead as reported

Outspoken Mukono Municipality Member of Parliament Betty Nambooze Bakileke is alive contrary to rumours that claimed she had passed on.

Nambooze was first admitted to Church of Uganda Hospital in Mukono District over stomach complications.

According to a one Betty, a family member taking care of the MP, she was admitted on Tuesday after complaining of serious stomach pain.

However, visitors have been restricted from seeing for at least the next three hours when she will probably have stabilised.

The doctor who is treating her refuted the allegations that she is dead saying the MP is at her home in Mukono recuperating following food poisoning.


Nambooze went out with her brother, son and five of her close friends on Saturday.

On returning home, she developed stomach pains.

“I was taken to Mukono Church hospital where I was treated so well… Sunday evening I was feeling much better and discharged.”

On Monday morning, her husband had taken the children to school and the maid had issues to settle at another school where her children goes.

“So I was alone at home. I had intended to pick a drink from the refrigerator down stairs when I collapsed and this is the condition where I was found almost an hour later.”

Nambooze says she received proper care and is now in safe hands.

“All tests don’t point to anything fatal and in just days I hope to be on my legs. As of now, the doctors have just put me on observation as they carry out more tests to rule out any element of harm.”

Nambooze is a controversial legislator known for her stance against President Yoweri Museveni.

Just recently, when President Museveni was reading the 2016/17 budget speech, Nambooze led some members of the opposition to walk out of Serena Conference Hall, where the budget reading took place on June 8.
