For a while now, Mubiru has been battling liver complications and has been in and out of the hospital.
Mubiru is now seeking financial assistance of over Shs80 million to go to the US for further treatment.
“I came back in Uganda after being discharged from Aga Khan Hospital Nairobi. At the moment am under medication I got from aga khan hospital until I get $25000 (about Shs88 million) for further abroad treatment.

He was detained for about six months before being granted bail in August.
