Ethics and Integrity Minister Rev Fr Simon Lokodo is terminally ill.
The minister had to be rushed to hospital after he collapsed while he was on official duty in the island district of Kalangala.
He was taken to the district health centre where he was still admitted by the time of publication of this story.
A family member who asked to be quoted anonymously described the condition of the minister as “unstable.”
He dismissed earlier reports however, that the minister was in a comma.
“It is also not true that he had a stroke as reported. We believe it was just high blood pressure,” he said.
According to the family member, Lokodo will today be airlifted to Kampala for further management.
