Dr. Abdilahi Muhammed Lomwar, the acting Hospital in Charge, says that although the number of patients has more than doubled the hospital is still operating below capacity due to inadequate medical equipment and health workers.
In the 2021 Presidential elections, Museveni popularity in the Nakasongola district declined to 65% from 84.46 % which he scored in the 2016 elections. The NUP Presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu made inroads and obtained 33% of the total votes cast in the district.
The increase in patient numbers follows the elevation of the facility from a Health Centre IV to a Hospital status in September. Records show that the number of deliveries have since increased from 200 to 300 per month, with at least 20 caesarian births, while out patients have increased to 300 visits per day.
