Musician Evelyn Lagu has thanked President Yoweri Museveni for the help he extended to her, including paying for her medical bill worth over shs50 million.
Singer Lagu has been battling kidney issues and a few weeks ago, the president ordered for her transfer to Nakasero hospital for better medical care.
Lagu was discharged a few days ago. And she has now taken to Facebook to appreciate the president.
She wrote: “My name is Nakabira Evelyn also known as Evelyn Lagu (stage name). With a very sober mind I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the president of the Republic of Uganda for the altruistic heart.
You all know the situation I was going through before His Excellence ordered for my transfer to Nakasero Hospital where I got a new life.
For the starters, I had spent close to 7months bedridden with heart, kidney and lung complications. My pockets had gone completely dry due to the costly medication and upkeep. My friends, family tried what they could (I appreciate them too) but stills the bills could not be met. For sure I had completely lost hopes of survival and left everything to God.
When I received a call telling me that president Museveni had ordered for my transfer to Nakasero Hospital moreover he was going to pay the bills, I thought I was dreaming or else it was a mental problem. For certain, I couldn’t believe the sudden change of fortune. It was real.
For the days I spent at Nakasero Hospital, I was treated like a VIP. I received whatever Iwanted whenever I wanted it and still receiving. My bill totalling close to UGX50,000,000 was paid by president Museveni and he’s still paying more because I have not stopped visiting the hospital. He also promised that Nakasero hospital will be my Hospital in case of any illness.
Nakasero is an extremely nice hospital, well equipped and with very caring medics. I assure you when I get a chance of seeing the president in camera (face to face), I will tell him we all (Ugandans) need better health services similar to what I saw at the “resurrection” place Nakasero.
There’s a verse in the Bible, (Revelation 18:6), it says “Pay her back even as she has paid, and give back to her double according to her deeds; in the cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her.”
As a believer I will be hypocritical if don’t pay back to the person who gave me another life. I might not be able to payback Mzee Museveni in double but let me give him the little I have. From today I will stand by him and support his government.
The bible again says (Proverbs 19:17), “One who is gracious to a poor man lends to the LORD, And He will repay him for his good deed.”
About the photo in which I appear in a red T-shirt which is making rounds on social media, It’s an old pic being circulated by a stonehearted female creature trying to disorganize my mind. I kindly ask you madam to keep me out of politics, nkyali mulwadde bambi.
For other brothers and sisters in the opposition, I love you so much. Don’t judge me please!
For God and My Country.”
