COMMONWEALTH Games silver medalist and 4 x 400m relay national record holder Peter Rwamuhanda is stranded at Nsambya hospital with an amputated leg.
Rwamuhanda, who lost his leg to cancer, needs sh1.3m to complete his hospital bill.
The 1982 Commonwealth Games silver medallist was admitted at Nsambya on July 13 and is due to be discharged.
“I am happy that I’m alive. But the pain is unbearable,” the ailing athletics coach said on Friday.
“He was a great athlete who should not be forgotten. Even if he gets out of hospital, he needs more financial support,” said Uganda Athletics Federation (UAF) secretary Beatrice Ayikoru.
