Minister Chris Baryomunsi, the Minister for Information Communication Technology (ICT) and National Guidance is reportedly improving health-wise after fainting in the Kanungu district last evening.
Baryomunsi is a member of parliament for the Kinkiizi East constituency.
According to reports, Baryomunsi fainted on his way from Ruhija in Muramba parish, Rutenga sub-county where he donated iron sheets to the Church of Uganda’s Kyakikyere church.
Reports quoting Godfrey Karabenda, Kanungu District National Resistance Movement (NRM) party Chairman say that when other occupants in the vehicle realized that Baryomunsi had fainted, they rushed him to Kambuga hospital for treatment where health workers led by one only identified as Dr. Adas examined and reportedly found him hypertensive.
”At around 10:30 PM the night, he was picked up from Kambuga hospital and referred to Kampala for specialized treatment. Eyewitnesses believe the helicopter that picked him up was from the military,” reports quote Karabenda as saying.
A family source who spoke on condition of anonymity said the Minister’s health was no longer worrying as it had improved.
“Yes! he developed serious fatigue last evening and fainted but the good news is that he is currently doing well.”
Baryomunsi has since also tweeted saying he is out of danger.
Friends, yesterday I had a black out while in my constituency. I was moving from one church function to another. I was rushed to Kambuga Hosp and then airlifted to Mulago Hospital. Am now stable and out of danger. The medical team is carrying out further tests. No need to worry.
