Retired Court of Appeal and Constitutional Court judge His worship Remmy Kasule was on Monday night rushed to Kampala Hospital after he suffered an acute heart attack.
However, shortly after he arrived at Kampala Hospital, the management referred him to Mulago Heart Institute for better management after his condition became worse.
Mr Solomon Muyita, the Judiciary Senior Communications Officer, has confirmed to the unfortunate development.
“Yes, I know that he was rushed to Uganda Heart Institute (UHI) on Monday night, but his condition has so far been stabilized,” Mr Muyita said on Tuesday morning.
A close family member said a minor operation was conducted on him to remove a blood clot out of his system and that his heart was fine and was likely to be discharged anytime.
Justice Kasule officially retired as a judge of the Court of Appeal and Constitutional Court in October 2018 after clocking 70 years and served out his three months to clear any pending work at his desk.
However, the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) and the judiciary top management are in talks to have the retired jurist bounce back to adjudicate cases on a contract basis.
He was also one of the five justices that heard the controversial presidential age limit petition last year in Mbale.
