MPs demand for accountability of funds budgeted for ministry of health

 

 

As president Museveni’s (Kintu government) is busy buying luxury cars for ministers, NRM cadres and MPs using taxpayers money, Ugandans in northern Uganda are left to die in misery.

Over the last past two months, there have been heated disagreements over the cause and treatment of nodding syndrome which affects young children between the ages of 2 to 15 although it has now started affecting adults.

Little wonder, however, some members of parliament from the northern region are already demanding for the accountability of funds from the Ministry of health that are meant for research on nodding syndrome, the disease that has puzzled Ugandan and international medics alike.

The minister for Health Christine Androa and other Ministry of Health officials insist that nodding disease could be epilepsy or a symptom of river blindness which are rampant in northern Uganda.
