Dr. Byarugaba

Mulago government hospital has finally admitted how it cannot handle the treatment of the Mukono municipality Member of Parliament Hon. Betty Nambooze.

Nambooze who has been under police guard at Kiruddu hospital in Kampala since she fell ill while in detention in Nagalama police station, had requested to be allowed to seek further medical attention as her health deteriorates but had been blocked on claims that she can be treated here.

However according to Dr. Byarugaba Baterana the Executive director of Mulago hospital revealed how they have been with Nambooze for almost a week but still needs to go abroad to the very doctors that operated her.

He notes that they have played their part where possible and even Okayed her medical requirements and all that is remaining is the August House to prepare her travel documents.

“Nambooze needs immediate attention, she is in big pain and in this regard we have allowed her to go and see the doctors that carried out her operation” Dr. Byarugaba said.

Besides the sickness, Nambooze is battling criminal charges of offensive communication in breach of the computer misuse act. According to police Nambooze committed this crime when she made a comment about the murder of Arua Municipality lawmaker Hon. Ibrahim Abiriga.
