Kampala, Uganda | URN | The head of National Unity Platform (NUP) legal department, Anthony Wameli is hospitalized at St. Anthony Medical Center in Kasangati, Wakiso due to stomach related complications.

His wife, Olive Wameli told this publication on phone on Saturday 29, May 2021 morning that her husband was rushed to hospital in bad shape (with stomach complications).

“We had feared because he was badly off…… He was doing badly. His condition isn’t good. That’s why I have picked his mobile phone,” said the wife.

According to Olive Wameli, they are currently doing tests to ascertain the problem because her husband is unable to talk at the moment.

Wameli’s closest friend, Geoffrey Turyamusiima told this publication that the human rights lawyer has been battling severe peptic ulcers over the past weeks, which he says could have worsened. He said that they are preparing to transfer Wameli to Kampala for further management.
