Nsambya Hospital Denies Handling Nekyon

Nsambya Hospital has denied admitting, treating or handling the body of former Minister Akbar Adoko Nekyon.

The lawyer to the Nekyon Family contacted the hospital and was informed that Nekyon was last seen at Nsambya Hospital for a medical review, three weeks before he died.

According to the lawyer Adam Makmot Kibwanga, the information from the hospital only goes further to confirm that Nekyon could have been murdered in his hotel room at Sheraton hotel.

Nekyon died on Friday 4th May 2018. It is however alleged that the close family members got to know about his death on Social media.

Makmot says, when they failed to find the body, they were surprised to find the body at his home in Kasanga.

When URN contacted Nsambya hospital, they were not able to avail information on Nekyon.

However, the hospital Administrator Stella Ojinga said, whoever alleges that Nekyon died from Nsambya hospital must prove the claims.

On Tuesday Makmot wrote to the Director Criminal Investigations Grace Akullo asking for an investigation to be instituted into the death of Nekyon.The lawyer reveals that before his death, Nekyon spent 6 days staying at Sheraton hotel, where he died from.

At the time of his death, Nekyon had also applied for police protection and was granted three police officers one of whom Makmot claims has since been arrested and is detained at a secret place.

Makmot says, there are so many unanswered questions in relation to the death of Nekyon.

The police spokesperson in charge CID Vincent Ssekate, says that a General inquiry file has been opened.

“We have opened a General inquiry file and we are investigating the circumstances surrounding his death,” Ssekate told Uganda Radio Network.
