This is after a picture of Uganda military helicopter, which president Museveni uses was allegedly spotted in an area rumored to be near Nairobi West hospital, with an ambulance and medics seen in a haste to help a person who is yet to be identified.
Uganda's State House is yet to clear the air on its social media so people in East Africa and Africa can know the truth about the reports that longest serving President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
Many have been waiting for the announcement from the State House Uganda to confirm whether it was true president Museveni was critically sick and had been airlifted to Germany for treatment.
The reports about Museveni's sickness and breathing complications, which was rumored to be as a result of COViD-19 started from a NTV Uganda television Twitter account, which the television refuted saying it was a fake account despite being a verified.
This has made many people to believe the news was true, and has up to now attracted mixed reactions in various social media sites.
"The President of Uganda, H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, has reportedly been airlifted to Germany in a critical condition after suffering from breathing complications.
It has been reported the reason was due to Covid19, according to his private doctor Dr. Monica Musenero," the post by NTV Uganda's twitter account read.
Several people, especially those opposed to Yoweri Museveni's dictatorial style of leadership came out to express their joy and celebrations over the news and actively spreading the post.
Both State House Uganda and NTV Uganda have flagged the tweet, terming it fake and malicious.
"Kindly disregard the fake news being posted and being shared and attributed to NTV Uganda and treat it with the contempt it deserves.
NTV Uganda has and cannot not share such information on any of its social media platforms," part of a statement by NTV Uganda read.
President Yoweri Museveni's senior press secretary Lindah Nabusayi has also said the president of Uganda is healthy and doing well.
"President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is due to preside over a virtual World Health Summit today at Munyonyo," Nabusayi said in a statement to the press.
Nabusanyi urged Ugandans to ease and disregard such claims by the people he called idle minds.
For many years now, the political muscles across the countries in the African continent has been a headache with dictatorship still being witnessed in many countries.
Uganda president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, who has been named the biggest dictator has been elected for the sixth time, serving over 30 years since he overthrew the then president of Uganda Milton Obote through a military coup.
NTV Uganda on Saturday night reported that the president of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni had been airlifted because of breathing problems but later dismissed the post.
This is not the first time the television station has become controversial.
During general elections in Uganda, there were a lot of fake news spread by the same television station and other media stations.
However, many have felt the news by NTV Uganda are true since the president has not come out to address Ugandans as he does on daily basis through his Twitter account.
The late Tanzania President John Pombe Magufuli death also had same dramatic news. In Africa every fake news and rumours there is always hidden truth.
"Ugandans are quiet about everything but back here in Kenya we're wondering what Museveni's military chopper is doing in Kenya! Pray for Uganda."
Uganda opposition leader Kizza Kifafa Besigye has also broken his silence amid the claims of president Museveni being sick, sending a controversial message which has also raised eyebrows.
"We are not only fighting to get a peaceful transition of power but changing power from those with guns to civilians authority!" part of statement by Besigye read.
Kifefe Kizza-Besigiye is one of the opposition leaders in Uganda to have highly been intimidated by president Museveni's administration when he was vying for presidency.
President Yoweri Museveni's government has killed many civilians in Uganda especially during the election period, where people who went to the streets to oppose Museveni's rule were arrested, tortured and detained without trial.
Others were killed by Uganda military.
