Uganda: MP Ssewanyana arrested while trying to close Kiruddu Hospital

Kampala- Makindye West Member of Parliament, Mr Allan Ssewanyana is under detention after his comical attempt to close Mulago Referral Satellite Hospital of Kiruddu.

Mr Ssewanyana arrived at the hospital armed with a chain to close the hospital gate because of management’s failure to construct a better sewage management system.

He was, however, stopped by police officers who arrested him.

He had earlier told journalists that he had information government released Shs3 billion for a sewage lagoon but no work is being done.

The hospital director, Dr Charles Kabugo declined to comment on the issue saying he was attending a meeting.

Dr Diana Atwine, the health ministry permanent secretary, had not yet responded to Mr Ssewanyana’s claim although efforts were made to seek clarification from her.

Some residents alleged that hospital authorities were letting sewage into their homes.

Kiruddu hospital has faced criticism over its defective sewage disposal system.

Last year, Dr Atwiine said plans to improve the hospital’s sewage system were underway.
