7:00am: Ex Minister Mayanja Nkangi, 85, is still alive, his family announced late Sunday night.

This followed persistent rumours of social media that the ex Buganda Kingdom Prime Minister who is bed-ridden at Nakasero Hospital had passed away.

Nkangi’s daughter, Josephine Mayanja-Nkangi said in a brief statement that “Daddy is still alive.”

She added: “I am not certain who is trying to kill him off so quickly but until I tell you otherwise, shut your ears to any to any other contrary information.”

Nkangi is being treated for pneumonia.

Nkangi for some time complained about pain until February 19 when he fell ill before being rushed to the hospitals

Nkangi last week said in a statement to ChimpReports 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 (last) 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.”
