Mr Hussein Kyanjo is said to have suffered from DYSTONIA.London University College Hospital(UCL) diagnosed and treated Mr Kyanzo for many years.UCL is one of the top 5 hospitals in the world, and so if it diagnosed Mr Kyanjo as suffering from Dystonia and treated him for it for many years, then I can’t see how the alternative diagnosis of “poisoning” comes into the picture. UCL treats a number of conditions for which currently there is is no cure. I am myself a patient, having been diagnosed with SARCOIDIOSIS, another incurable disease, since 2009, and have been on steroid treatment ever since, which only controls and stops my body immune system from launching parasitic attacks on itself, but does not cure the illness itself.. If I die now, it may be convenient to accuse Kayibanda of poisoning me, but in reality it is SARCOIDIOSIS that would have done me in and beaten Kayibanda Museveni to it.
However pleased he will be with the outcome, Kayibanda will never claim any credit for my death. I mention this point because I want Ugandans to face the reality of their medical conditions and to refrain from the habit of finding convenient alibis for inconvenient conditions. 95% of Ugandans who die of HIV/AIDS for eg never admit it, and will claim other causes of death- usually Heart Attack. This habit must stop. If I die of Sarcoid- I want Ugandans to know it is sacoirdoisis that has killed me, and not poison from kayibanda.
Secondly,the announcement of Abbey Semuwemba’s death was a little bit premature. Apparently it is a wish list by some individuals annoyed with Senuwemba’s constant attacks and criticism of Mr Bob Wine. It attracted debate on his Facebook forum, Senuwemba himself refused to deny or confirm his unfortunate demise, so we assume he is still living, rather than resting in peace!
