The former outspoken regime critic says on that fateful day when his cancer escalated, he was forced to go to the International Hospital of Kampala. Upon arrival, he was told a covid test was among the mandatory requirements before any diagnosis could resume. “I found a new hospital policy requiring all admitted patients to test for covid. My results returned the following day indicating I was positive and I had to be taken either to Mulago or Entebbe. I asked why I could not be handled at IHK and I was told IHK was not accredited to deal with COVID-19 cases and I wondered why but any how I complied. I was then transferred to Entebbe that evening at around 9pm” recounts Hon. Kyanjo. He adds that he inquired about the fate of his wife and was told she would not be quarantined despite having been in contact with him, something that left him suspicious of the entire process. “I inquired about my wife…The response was swift. Let her go home, no test and no quarantine. That was also quite strange,” Kyanjo says.

On arrival at Entebbe Grade B hospital, Kyanjo was kept in isolation and transferred to the VIP section the next morning. He inquired from doctors why his wife had been dismissed and yet they have children and toddlers back home who may contract the virus but doctors seemed unmoved.

Kyanjo says all the time he spent at the hospital, he didn’t receive any treatment save for the cancer pills. His stay was saved on October, 2 when the results this time round reflected negative and aided his discharge. He however believes that the entire process is a hoax meant to hoodwink the public. “I didn’t see any complicated medical or other procedure which either IHK or my wife could not handle,” he notes.
