Unknown thugs intercepted Lukambwe while returning from a drinking joint in Kabembe together with his wife around 11 pm while crossing through Kanyogoga eucalyptus forest near his home in Misombwa village in Ddundu parish.
He was rushed to Nsambya hospital under critical condition. However, his caretaker, Alex Lubwama says his family failed to raise the requested amount for operation and sought for a referral at Mulago hospital last evening.
“We were tasked look for shillings 9million for the operation were half of it was supposed to be deposited immediately but we failed. Our efforts to seek assistance from security agencies also remained fruitless up to now. We are currently standing on the community favour soliciting money to transport the body from the hospital.” Lubwama reveals.
