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.
The general, 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.
He was admitted at St. Francis Hospital, 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, a Kampala suburb.
Gen moses Ali, 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.
He last night said that the wound on his leg had failed to heal, although “I feel generally better than before”.
Gen Ali represents Adjumani West Constituency of Moyo District, and there was panic among his relatives and supporters, prompting a flurry of distressed calls, after the Red Pepper last month reported that he had slipped into coma and been flown abroad.
“I have been sick, yes, but not in coma,” Gen Moses Ali said in a rebuttal, dismissing reports at the time about his degenerated condition as “malicious”.
