Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has slammed a section of Kenyans who he accuses of spreading rumors that he was admitted to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) while battling COVID-19.
President Museveni responded on social media on Tuesday, clarifying that he is in good health and that if the claims were true, he would have made them public.
“I also noticed some few individuals from, I think, Kenya, saying that I was in ICU etc. If I was in ICU, the government would inform the country. What is there to hide?,” he posed on Twitter.”However, I have not been to bed as a sick man in the house here except for sleeping, let alone being in a hospital bed, whether ICU or otherwise. Continue praying, we shall overcome.”
While also giving an update on his health status, the three-decade-serving president said that the symptoms have grown milder in the past few days and that he is on a path to full recovery.
Meanwhile, the Ugandan Head of State is set to undergo possibly the final Covid-19 test on Thursday, according to his brother Shadrack Kaguta.
“The President is already out of danger. I happened to get in touch with him yesterday on the phone and he told me he is okay and just observing the standard operating procedures from the Ministry of Health as he waits for the final test probably on Thursday this week,” he was quoted by the Monitor newspaper as saying.
The 78-year-old president tested positive for COVID-19 on June 7.
