Dr. Byamugisha told URN in an exclusive interview that prior to the renovation of the hospital, the delivery of health services had become difficult and expensive to manage.
All this has improved, despite the insatiable demands at the Hospital. Following months of renovation work, Dr. Josaphat K. Byamugisha, the Director of the newly transformed Makerere Health Services says he breathes with a sigh of relief.
A letter from Eng. Christina Kakeeto, the Director Estates and Works Makerere University addressed to the Police Chief in the University, shows that the affected officers were given a month to vacate the premises by the end of this week in vain.
Their arrest follows a week-long inquiry by the State House Health Monitoring Unit on the management of laboratory equipment within the hospital. The officials learnt that a number of laboratory technicians have part time jobs in private laboratories and usually earn commission from patients sent to the private facilities.
Dr Jackson Ojera, the Director of the Health Monitoring Unit says that they are carrying thorough investigations by re-interrogating the suspects, support staff and other health workers within the hospital.
According to Ngabirano, during the inspection, Yesiime failed to account for more than 500 HIV testing kits delivered to the facility. He explained that the number of people tested at the facility is far less to the missing kits.
