The X-ray machine at Busolwe Hospital has broken down forcing patients to travel 50 Kilometers to Mbale town for the service.

Dr. Samuel Mweru, the Medical Superintendent of Busolwe Hospital says that their X-ray machine broke down on April 25, 2010.

He says that the X- ray machine was donated to Busolwe main hospital in 2008 by the Japanese International Corporation Agency (JICA).

Mweru says that the hospital lacks the shillings 25 million which is being requested for by the technicians to repair the machine.

He says that as a result patients who need x-rays are being turned away from the hospital.

Richard Waya, Butaleja LC V chairman says that the district cannot afford to repair the x-ray machine.

Waya says that the districts less than shillings 10 million in local revenue annually.

Central government contributes almost 96 percent of Butaleja district budget.
