Gen Ali left for Mumbai on Saturday at 6:30pm aboard Ethiopian Airlines.[3] At Entebbe Airport.

Gen Moses Ali said he expects a more comprehensive examination and, afterwards, a longer relief from bad health.

“I don’t know for how long I will be there (in India). It depends on what the doctors find and advise,” he said.[1]

The general,[5] a former finance minister during Idi Amin’s government, is 77-years-old and last week, while responding to concerns about his advanced age, said he was still of the strength and wisdom to serve the country.[9]

He was admitted at St. Francis Hospital,[12] Nsambya, in Kampala for 18 days and discharged on June 7. Ugandan doctors said at the time that he had gangrene on the lower right leg (cnemis) triggered by diabetes.

A nurse was accordingly assigned to clean and dress the wound each day at his home in Naguru,[10] a Kampala suburb.

Gen moses Ali,[11] a deputy Leader of Government Business in Parliament, and on health grounds delayed to swear-in upon re-appointment, appearing in the House only for vetting by Parliament’s Appointments Committee.[8]

He last night said that the wound on his leg had failed to heal,[3] although “I feel generally better than before”.
Gen Ali represents Adjumani West Constituency of Moyo District,[7] and there was panic among his relatives and supporters, prompting a flurry of distressed calls,[9] after the Red Pepper last month reported that he had slipped into coma and been flown abroad.

“I have been sick,[4] yes, but not in coma,” Gen Moses Ali said in a rebuttal, dismissing reports at the time about his degenerated condition as “malicious”.

The reports followed his failure to attend the Cabinet swearing-in and the follow up hand-over ceremony, raising questions about the state of his health.[2]
