People power political boss who also doubles as Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi allies Bobi Wine has said Mityana Municipality Member of Parliament Francis Zaake Butebi is steadily recovering.

Singer cum politician stressed that an ophthalmologist tried to examine MP Zaake’s eyes but discovered that he is suffering from a condition known as photophobia which has made it almost impossible to open his eyes for examination.

“Accordingly, the ophthalmologist gave him some eyedrops to manage the pain, and spectacles to reduce on the light entering his eyes,” Bobi Wine alarmed.  “It is only after the photophobia subsides that a thorough examination will be possible.” Bobi added.

According to him, MP Zaake still suffers from acute migraines as well as excruciating back pain. “Otherwise he is steadily recovering,” he concluded.

MP Zaake was arrested at his home in Mityana, as he distributed food to people hard hit by the COVID-19 restrictions. The police held Zaake at the Special Investigations Unit in Kireka, and initially denied his lawyers and family members access to him.  On April 22, police transferred Zaake to the Iran-Uganda Hospital in Naguru, where he was being treated for an undisclosed condition while remaining in police custody. The police denied reports that Zaake was tortured, but three witnesses who saw Sale said he was unable to walk and appeared to have been severely beaten. Paul Mwiru, a parliament member who managed to visit Zaake while he was in detention in Kireka, said that Zaake could not see and had flesh missing from his chest, “They had beaten his back. He had a lot of bruises in the face. He would not move, because they had hit him so badly.

“Meddard Sseggona Lubega, Zaake’s lawyer, who visited Zaake in hospital, also saw his injuries: “His legs were swollen, and his head was bruised.” Lubega said Zaake told him that soldiers tortured him while he was detained

UPDATE ON COMRADE HON. ZAAKE
An ophthalmologist tried to examine Hon. Zaake’s eyes but discovered that he is suffering from a condition known as photophobia (fear of light/
pain to the eyes due to light exposure) which has made it almost impossible to open his eyes for examination. Accordingly, the ophthalmologist gave him some eyedrops to manage the pain, and spectacles to reduce on the light entering his eyes. It is only after the photophobia subsides that a thorough examination will be possible.
He still suffers from acute migraines as well as excruciating back pain. Otherwise he is steadily recovering.
