  A team of police Doctors have examined the Mityana Municipality Member of Parliament Francis Zaake and categorised his condition as suffering from 'superficial injuries.

The team of doctors headed by the Director Medical Service Moses Byaruhanga visited Zaake at Rubaga Hospital on Friday after getting clearance from the hospital.

According to Byaruhanga, the family of Zaake initially refused the police doctors from accessing the patient. However, with the help of the doctors at Rubaga, they were able to see him.

Byaruhanga says, all tests done on Zaake were normal and he is currently recovering.

//Cue in: " He basically sustained ...

Cue out: ... stool well."

However, one of Zaake's caretakers, Julius Katongole has dismissed the findings of the police doctors.

"Parliament is in the final processes of allowing Zaake to go abroad for treatment. They only allowed after confirming that he has abdominal, head and spinal injuries. Police is trying to lie to government." Katongole says.

Zaake was arrested on Monday 13th August together with other legislators and supporters of MP-elect Arua Municipality Kassiano Wadri. 

Police has since said, Zaake escaped from police custody while undergoing medical treatment at Arua Referral Hospital.

Police has since opened a file against Zaake investigating his escape from lawful custody.

This is not the first time that Zaake has been allegedly been battered by security personnel.

In 2017 during the age limit debate, he was brutalised and later admitted at Mercy hospital in Minnesota, USA, for injuries sustained on the skull.
