The Patient was received at the hospital, directly from the airport. He was examined and taken to theatre for a thorough examination and cleaning his eyes of what appeared like residue from the spray. At the same time his arm cast was removed as it was now ineffective and soaked in tear gas or other substance. The fracture was reset and his arm re-cast. The examination revealed injuries to the chest. Today he was reviewed and taken to Xray and scan to examine the chest further.
Specimens were taken to try and establish the nature of toxins, that were sprayed on Dr. Besigye even though we realize that some 60 hours after the injury it may be difficult to get an accurate assessment. The results of these lab tests are not yet available. He remains on treatment for all his injuries.
