False: Hon Rebecca Kadaga Is Not Rushed To Aga Khan Hospital

A TikTok (archived link) video posted on March 18, 2024, claiming that Hon Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga has been rushed to Aga Khan Hospital in Kenya, has made rounds on social media and it has generated  over 31,900 views, 3724 comments, 1762 bookmarks, and 1662 shares.

The video, with photos of Hon. Rebecca Kadaga, shows a couple of people following an ambulance that is being claimed to have Hon. Kadaga on one of the roads in Kenya. The account which posted it has over 97,000 followers and it poses as a news platform that shares trending stories, though it’s a personal account in the name of Mbaziira123.

The same video was posted on a YouTube channel dubbed Pro Journ Media TV on March 20, 2024 and it got over 2000 views. 

Facts:

The Office of the Prime Minister has not issued any statement concerning Hon. Rebecca Kadaga’s health, which questions the authenticity and motive of one posting such a video.

On cross-checking Hon. Kadaga’s X account (formerly twitter), she posted on March 19th, 2024, photos of her and her guests that she had hosted that morning and Afternoon in her office.

More evidence of Hon Kadaga’s presence in the country is noticed from a post of her attending a career guidance workshop for S 6 students in Kamuli District with commissioner of Education and teachers on March 23, 2024.

On March 29, 2024, Busoga revealed two new heritage sites, with the unveiling ceremony officiated by Hon. Rebecca Kadaga. This significant event garnered coverage from media outlets such as New Vision, Baba TV, and citizen journalists, all emphasising the presence of Hon. Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga.

“Yesterday, I unveiled the 36th and 37th tourism sites in Busoga, namely Isenda Hill, home to the Baise-Matende Clan, and Busira Hill, the place of the Bunhole and Bukooli Chiefdoms. I encourage all visitors, tourists, and historians to explore,” a caption on a photo of Hon. Kadaga posted on March 30th, 2024, on her X account reads.

Verdict

The circulating video claiming that Hon. Kadaga has been rushed to Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya, is false. Hon. Kadaga is currently in the country, not in Nairobi, and is not as sick as claimed.
