Evelyn Lagu Flies back to Uganda after Failed Kidney Transplant in Turkey




Celebrated singer and actress, Evelyn Lagu is finally back to Uganda with her son after a failed kidney transplant in Turkey.

Lagu says she returned since she could not get the anticipated kidney transplant. She will instead remain on medication.

This is because, medics in Turkey explained that her body could not handle the kidney transplant and if she went ahead with it, she would not live for long  Lagu thus was forced to choose medication over surgery.

“The medics that side discovered that my body can not handle a major operation so they advised me against it. They said that if we insisted , I would not live for long. So I chose to follow their advice ” she told reporters

She also appealed to anyone with a job offer and a business to reach out to her since her life is now expensive due to the medication.

” I call upon anyone who can employ me or give me a business to please do because I need money. My life is expensive due to the sickness ” she added.

The actress flew to Turkey a couple months ago with her son from where she called on Ugandans to help her foot her hospital bills.

Musicians like Spice Diana reached out and she is now free.
