Former Makindye West legislator, Hussein Kyanjo says he is getting better and positively responding to medication.
Kyanjo was on Thursday rushed to India for medication after he was diagnosed with cancer of the colon which is at stage four.
On Saturday, social media reports indicated that he had passed on, but SoftPower News has since established that the former legislator is getting better.
In a conversation with this news website on Sunday morning, Kyanjo said that despite being only allowed a limited time on phone, his situation is improving.
“I am only allowed 10 minutes on phone a day,” he said before referring us to Imaam Kasozi, Hajji Buwembo and Hajji Nsubuga for further information about his condition.
In an earlier conversation with SoftPower News on Saturday night, Kyanjo said he had been given a tablet which made him feel better and as he got some energy.
“Feeling alot better with your love. I have received some small tablet. It gives me energy and appetite and am really happy, you cant believe,” Kyanjo told SoftPower News on Saturday.
In a statement on Thursday, Justice Forum (JEEMA) a party to which Kyanjo is affiliated, said doctors were doing their best to manage his situation as well as ascertaining whether it’s connected to his current ailment which caused him his current speaking problems.
“Hon Kyanjo requested the general public to remain calm while praying for his quick recovery. He’s hopeful that he will be present when the youthful generation he has helped inspire, and which has taken matters in their hands, liberates this country,” read JEEMA’s statement in part.
Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) deputy secretary general, Harold Kaija had earlier indicated that he had a chat with Kyanjo moments before setting off for India and he (Kyanjo) told him to stay strong.
“Don’t cry, keep strong. One soldier down should not break the struggle. For that loss does not in any way strengthen the enemy. He will collapse,” Kyanjo reportedly told Kaija.
“I know that many people are hungry for property like land and arcades. They will go with nothing,” he added.
He has battled with Dystonia, a rare disease that eats up certain organs and muscles of the body and he is said to have had to get two toxin injections on the lower part of his jaws to keep the muscles in shape.
