She went to New York to attend the 63rd UN commission on the status of women which ended on Sunday the 24th of March 2019.

But before, she first attended a conference in Robat, Morrocco, the 14th session of parliamentary union of the organisation, of Islamic Cooperation Conference (PUOIC).

At the time of her admission at Nakasero Hospital, Hon  Rebecca Kadaga was said to be unconscious and was in the intensive care unit (ICU).

Then on Sunday morning the 24th of March 2019, Sam Obbo, the principle press secretary to the speaker, said Kadaga was transferred to Nairobi, Aga Khan Hospital following doctors’ counsel.

“She is stable and continues to recover, she looks forward to resuming her duties in the shortest time possible.” Obbo stated.

According to reports from one of the officials who preferred anonymity, Kadaga was conscious again at the time she was moved to Nairobi.
