Kawempe Hospital a Death Trap
The absence of Makerere University medical interns from health facilities in Kampala is spelling trouble for the health sector. Parliament is now seeking government intervention. The chairperson of the parliamentary committee on health Dr. Micheal Bukenya revealed that between 13 to 15 children die every day in Kawempe Hospital as result of inadequate medical personnel. NBS TV visited the health facility to find a rather delicate situation.
Makerere University was closed on 1st November following a presidential directive that pushed postgraduate medical students out of practice.
