In an interview with Uganda Radio Network, Ibrahim Nsamba, the JEEMA Party Electoral Commission chairman says Kyanjo is recuperating at his home in Makindye following the successful operation.

Hussein Kyanjo, the Makindye West Member of Parliament is recuperating and on the road to recovery according to his party the Justice Forum.

The outspoken legislators recently underwent a third operation for a jaw and tongue ailment in India recently. Previously the legislator had two operations after he was diagnosed with Dystonia in 2011.

Dystonia is described as a neurological movement disorder in which sustained muscle contractions cause twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal postures. The disorder could be inherited or caused by an accident, physical attack or poisoning. The disease has kept Kyanjo out of the political limelight since then.


In an interview with Uganda Radio Network, Ibrahim Nsamba, the JEEMA Party Electoral Commission chairman says Kyanjo is recuperating at his home in Makindye following the successful operation. Nsamba says the legislator has been meeting several of his supporters and well-wishers.

Cue Out:…he recovers//


The party recently unveiled its 2016 election roadmap, detailing plans to carry out election of party leaders starting from July 1 to 31st at all party levels.

Nsamba however says Kyanjo already indicated his intention not to seek reelection. He says the party will be riding on the performance of Kyanjo to take up the seat in 2016.

Cue Out:…that seat//

Kyanjo has served as Makindye West MP since 2006 and the sole representative of JEEMA in the 9th Parliament.
