Former Makerere Guild President, Sarah Kagingo, says rumours that Kyanjo is terminally ill or dead are completely false.
“I can confirm that Kyanjo is recovering steadily after a jaw surgery. He is now in a hotel recuperating,” she tells our news desk on Friday morning.
“I have talked to Kyanjo on phone but he still has problems with the tongue after doctors replaced his teeth. He was advised not to talk a lot,” adds Kagingo.
She further notes Kyanjo has as well been transferred from the Hospital to a hotel in Dubai.
“According to the Muslim culture, if one dies, they communicate immediately to all concerned people. As of now there are no arrangements for burial. Kyanjo is with his wife Sarah. He is on the road to recovery,” confirms Kagingo, who has been close to the legislator’s family for a good number of years.
Kagingo’s statement puts to rest rumours that circulated in Kampala on Thursday night that Kyanjo had passed away.
Kyanjo, who is battling jaw dislocation -a condition which made him to fly out of the country to seek expertise treatment, underwent two operations in one week a couple of months ago.
A quick Google search shows that when a person has a dislocated jaw it is difficult to open and close the mouth.
Dislocation can occur following a series of events if the jaw locks while open or unable to close.
If the jaw is dislocated, it may cause an extreme headache or inability to concentrate. When the muscle’s alignment is out of sync, a pain will occur due to unwanted rotation of the jaw.
If the pain remains constant, it may require surgery to realign the jaw.
Depending on the severity of the jaw’s dislocation, pain relief such as paracetamol may assist to alleviate the initial chronic pain.
If the pain relief is taken for an extended period of time, it may negatively affect the person while talking, eating, smoking, drinking, etc.
