Paddy Bitama who is a former comedian with the Amarula Family fell sick last year and has been bed ridden at Mulago until mid this week when the doctors at Mulago Hospital advised his family to take him home since they can’t do anything to improve his situation.
Paddy is currently at his home in Nansana where he is fighting a tough battle for his life.
It should be noted that today at the same time, Rwanda president Paul Kagame has been reported dead but the Rwanda government was quick to refute the reports.
