The Lord Mayo was on Saturday, December 5, 2020 discharged from hospital in Nairobi where he has been receiving treatment for acute anaphylaxis for 11 days.
His deputy Doreen Nyanjura told this website on Sunday that the Lord Mayor’s condition has been serious but stable and thanked Ugandans for praying for him.
“The Lord Mayor is stable, he was discharged today morning and is traveling back on Monday December 07, 2020,” Nyanjura said, adding that the Lord Mayor will travel to Kampala on Monday, November 7, 2020.
Earlier on December 2, Nyanjura had said that Professor Godfrey Lule, a Ugandan consultant physician and Gastroenterologist who is highly sought after in Kenya and Professor Muhindi Wanjugu a consultant Physician and chest expert, were leading the medical team that was working on the Lord Mayor.
Acute anaphylaxis is a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction.
The reaction can occur within seconds or minutes of exposure to an allergen. Symptoms include a skin rash, nausea, vomiting, difficulty breathing and shock. If not treated right away, usually with epinephrine, it can result in unconsciousness or death.
