After about two weeks of treatment in Kenya, Uganda Journalists Association (UJA) president Bashir Kazibwe Mbaziira is expected back in the country today.
In a message to fellow journalists, Kazibwe revealed that it was confirmed by doctors in Nairobi that he consumed poison.
“It’s been 18 excruciatingly painful days of coming face to face with death itself. The confirmed cause? Lethal Poisoning. Why? The doers will answer to their Lord,” Mbaziira revealed.
“My Doctors at a Nairobi Hospital have advised that I am to keep on medication for the next six months with a physical medical review and re-examination every month. ‘These fools have killed me’ are words attributed to one of the gallant sons of Uganda whose life ended in a mystery.”
The UJA boss says it is only by Allah’s Grace and mercy that he is alive and can testify about the trying moment he underwent
He asked fellow Ugandans to keep strong and pushing for the good cause for the progress of the country.
“To my colleagues in the media industry under UJA, this is another tough reminder of what is on the other side of our job, but we should never give up, since we all know that the pen is mightier than a gun”
He applauded the Ugandan diaspora community for standing with him despite being thousands of miles away.
“My loving family, thanks for all the care & support to see that am back to my feet, though am worried, but kindly take this: I ceased to be yours alone long ago, the world owns a share of me now. Our family is growing bigger and am now going further in the woods to pave a road for our nation’s next generation”
Kazibwe further vowed to share the details on how events which led to him being hospitalized unfolded once he returns.
Early this mont, Kazibwe was admitted at the International Hospital Kampala (IHK) due to undisclosed health complications
After some days he was discharged from the Hospital and later airlifted to Nairobi Hospital where he has been undergoing treatment.
