Dr. Jane Ruth Aceng has condemned the act of using coffins in demonstrations to intimidate Health Ministry Permanent Secretary Dr Diana Atwine, saying such acts demoralise health workers.
Dr. Aceng, who is also the country’s Health Minister, said that the permanent secretary has on several occasions given accountability and she does not know what the demonstrators really want.
Dr. Aceng’s comments come just two days after yet to be identified individuals dumped of a coffin of a baby at Mulago Hospital with placards demanding immediate resignation of Dr Atwine.
The demonstrators seem to accuse Dr Atwine of failing to offer accountability of the COVID-19 funds that were donated to government to fight the pandemic.
Meanwhile, Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire said that police has leads to who the suspects might be and they will be making arrests anytime soon to find out the motive thus saying they should find other ways of making issues heard than such a way. ENDS
