Speaking in an interview on Tuesday, Ms Anywar who was involved in an accident in Potika, Lamwo District a month ago said doctors at Case Clinic where she has been receiving have referred her to India for further checks because they are not comfortable with the internal pain she is still feeling.

Ms Anywar said she needs $4,000 (Shs14 million) for treatment cost which is separate from air tickets and upkeep while in India.

Ms Anywar said she has written to the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga regarding the issue.
Mr Chris Obore, the director communications at Parliament said he was not aware that she has written
“If she has written to Parliament, then I am sure Parliament has written to the medical board which must sanction her travel then we shall process her benefits because she is entitled as a senior legislator,” he said.
