KAMPALA - Lubaga South Member of Parliament (MP) Kato Lubwama was Tuesday discharged from Medipal International hospital where he underwent two major successful surgeries.

Lubwama who has been hospitalized since March assured his voters that he is ready to face his opponents in Lubaga South following a scientific election as pronounced by the Electoral Commission.

According to health experts, Lubwama had two big tumours which were removed from his colon.

After the discharge, Lubwama was accompanied by his wife Annie Lubwama, and his son Conald Lubwama, relatives and supporters to his home.

In 2016 general elections, John Ken Lukyamuzi the CP president general and the only party MP was trounced by comedian Kato Lubwama.

Addressing his supporters at his home in Mutundwe parish, Wakiso district shortly after being discharged, Lubwama said: "God is great that I am still alive, I assure my voters that I am going to contest and face my opponents for the Lubaga South MP seat."

Dressed in a maroon shirt with a sunhat, Lubwama who looked strong, was lively and made his usual jokes. He was welcomed amidst supporters chanting ululations and slogans of "Solida our man is back in the race,"

Lubwama dismissed social media reports that he intends to join Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi's alias Bob Wine new political party National Unity Platform (NUP).

"I refute the reports that I intend to affiliate to any political party including NUP, I will contest on an independent ticket, but leaning my support from Buganda government under the slogan "Buganda Bumu," said Lubwama.

"I don't have problems with political parties, but there is inner fighting, which promotes intrigue," he said.

Over seven people want to unseat Lubwama. These include Samuel Lubega Mukaaku,  Aloysious Mukasa, Mathias Bbaale, FDC's Habib Buwembo and Kenny Lukyamuzi.
