Mortar-mouthed former presidential press secretary and political analyst Tamale Mirundi is currently hospitalized at a medical facility in Nairobi, Kenya, where he was rushed on Friday evening, after he refused treatment from any hospital in Uganda.
Elite News has learnt that prior to being flown to Nairobi Tamale had been rushed to Kisubi Hospital along Entebbe Road after he had collapsed.
Although medics at Kisubi Hospital didn’t divulge details about Tamale’s exact health problem, a source at the hospital intimated that he was diagnosed with high levels of dehydration, fatigue and depression.
But it should be noted that Tamale is a self-confessed lover of the locally brewed liquor Waragi, which many of his ardent fans suspect could have played to his high levels dehydration.
On the other hand, medics suspect that Tamale could have been overcome by fatigue and depression, because of his strenuous work schedule Tamale is among the few Ugandan political analysts with the most number of radio and TV talk shows.
Indeed Tamale has a radio or TV talk show almost everyday and medics contend that this hectic schedule could be taking toll on his life.
However, Tamale’s family members hadn’t yet issued a statement about his health condition by the time of filing this story, although his health condition is said to have been stabilising.
