However, according to UPDF and Ministry of Defence publicist, Col Felix Kulayigye, toxins found in Kayanja’s blood were not poisonous.

“This is to clarify that indeed it is true tests were carried out and toxins found in Brig Kayanja’s blood. He was then put on Dialysis a life supporting system to remove them,” said Kulayigye.

He added: “According to our medical experts, these were natural toxins manufactured and found in every living human being not as a result of poisoning as the story portrays.”

Kayanja has spent a couple of weeks at the medical facility, having collapsed at the Army General Headquarters in Bombo last month.
