Bobi Wine cleared to travel, Zaake still in the country
Police has confirmed that Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has been cleared to fly out of the country for specialized treatment.
Mr Emilian Kayima, police spokesperson issued a statement to the effect.
"Now that Hon Kyagulanyi has been examined by the medical team of experts at Mulago Referral Hospital (Kiruddu Complex) the Uganda Police Force has allowed him to leave the medical facility," Mr Kayima said.
Mr Fred Nyanzi, Bobi Wine's elder brother said they would leave the country tonight if nothing goes amiss.
"Bobi has been cleared and we want him to travel tonight. We are heading to Entebbe to book the next flight to USA," Mr Nyanzi said.
This afternoon, government sent a team of nine doctors led by Dr Byarugaba Baterana, the Mulago Hospital Executive Director to do confirmatory tests on Mr Zaake and Mr Bobi Wine.
However Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake, refused to be examined and is still in the country.
“He declined. Hopefully he complies. But for a fact, we are positively engaging and we shall have the examination done, statements recorded and we hope all will be well,” Mr Kayima said when Daily Monitor spoke to him.
Zaake’s family insisted they wouldnt subject him to the government, for examination.
It is not clear what the results from the tests were and whether they have informed government's decision to allow Kyagulanyi to travel for treatment.
