A startling photograph depicting the deteriorating health of Kawempe South’s Member of Parliament, Muhammad Ssegirinya, has sent shockwaves throughout the nation, raising serious concerns about the gravity of his medical condition.
The distressing image showcases Ssegirinya with a visibly swollen stomach, underscoring the severity of his health crisis.
Recently readmitted to Nsambya Hospital, the legislator has been grappling with a series of health complications, with the swelling in his stomach necessitating urgent medical attention.
Ssegirinya, who recently underwent treatment in the Netherlands, candidly shared the harsh reality of his health situation, stating, “I am suffering from skin cancer and have lung infections.
If I did not come to the hospital in time, I would die in 6 months. Even my liver has swellings which doctors say should be cut.”
The widely circulated photograph on social media has prompted an outpouring of sympathy and concern from the public. Many are expressing solidarity with the embattled legislator, calling for increased awareness about serious health conditions.
Known for his outspoken advocacy and community engagement, Ssegirinya has been transparent about the challenges he faces. “They keep piling on more diseases; each time they come with a new development.
I am frustrated. They have performed an endoscopy and several tests to determine the wounds and swellings on the liver,” he shared during a recent statement. The nation watches with bated breath as concerns about the health of this prominent figure continue to grow.
