The National Unity Platform has come out to suggest that their member, Kampala woman MP could have been poisoned.
Taking to his social media pages, NUP deputy spokesperson Alex Waiswa Mufumbiro said that poison is a weapon for the cowards.
He then went ahead to wish the MP a quick recovery.
Shamim Malende’s situation is still a bit worrying after she was admitted into the ICU unit at the Aga Khan hospital in Nairobi, Kenya.
The MP a few days ago was rushed to Rubaga hospital after suffering from a strange illness.
It’s said that she suffered a seizure while at her home in Kawempe.
This was a few days after being released by Police after she was taken into custody after being found distributing reflector jackets to boda boda riders.
While at Rubaga hospital, she was put on oxygen but the situation worsened.
Her family was advised to seek treatment from a bigger and more advanced hospital thus taking her to Aga khan in Kenya.
She was accompanied by her husband Shamiru Ssebunya, her mother Jane-Francis Nassuna and Lubaga north Councilor, James Mubiru.
Doctors told them that she had consumed a strange chemical that affected her.
“The doctors were seeing nothing so they referred us to a bigger hospital. It was decided that we bring her to Aga Khan hospital,” said Mubiru in a phone interview.
By then she was complaining of abdominal pains.
A surgery was performed while in Kenya but she later became unconscious thus being rushed to the ICU.
And after the surgery, she regained consciousness with medics predicting a month before she could be released.
However, her admission into the ICU has left many people worried.
The MP has been an integral figure in defending fellow MPs, Allan Ssewanyana and Muhammad Ssegirinya in the case in which they are accused by the state of being the masterminds behind the spate of deaths in Masaka last year.
