Nkangi, http://cdkstone.com.au/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/class-wc-form-handler.php who also served as Buganda Prime Minister, fell ill on Monday, with the family fearing for the worst.

“For a while now, my father has been complaining about pain here and there,” said the former minister’s daughter, Josephine Nkangi.

She further told ChimpReports on Friday that his father “has been under the care of Dr. Mbonye and Dr. Luzige at Nakasero hospital.”

The plan was to take Nkangi, 85, to India for further investigation.

However, according to Josephine, “on February 19th, we realized that he was in a lot of inexplicable pain so we rushed him to the hospital.”

She added: “Until this week, we didn’t really know what the extent of the damage was. The doctors said it was pneumonia however on Sunday; my father took a turn for the worse. An oncologist was called in and on Monday we learnt that daddy is seriously ill.”

Nkangi served in many high profile positions in the Uganda government as Minister of Finance and Economic Planning, Attorney General and Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs.

An accomplished lawyer, Nkangi attended Kabungo Primary School in Buddu County, Buddo Kings College, Makerere University and later Oxford University in England.

He was a close friend of Kabaka Edward Muteesa whom he served as a Prime Minister.

At the moment, said Josephine, “everything is being done to manage the situation. Everything humanly possible. He is generally stable and pain free.”

The public has since been urged to respect Nkangi’s privacy.

“As a family we appreciate the fact that daddy belongs to the nation, not just to us. We know that many would like to see him however, it is critical that he rests so his strength can be renewed,” said Josephine.

“We ask that everybody respects his dignity and nobody tries to take photographs or whatever.”
