Doctors have not reported to a government hospital in Uganda to examine MP Francis Zaake who is to travel to India for treatment, his family has said.

Dan Mugambwa, a brother to Mityana Municipality MP, said a team of doctors from Mulago Hospital is to examine Mr Zaake and give the government a report.


They have not shown up at Kiruddu Hospital since he was admitted despite promising to do so, Mr Mugambwa said.

“We have been waiting for the doctors but none of them has come. On Saturday they said they were coming but they didn’t. [The case was the same on] Sunday. We don’t know what these people are thinking about our patient. Do they want him to die before they come?"

Mr Mugambwa noted that his brother's condition is worsening.
