Traditional healers under the national council for Traditional Healers Association (NACOTHA), who were evicted from Katwe Jubilee Park, have got a new home in Kajjansi, Sissa sub-county in Wakiso district.

NACOTHA secretary general Karim Musasizi said the home would enhance the development of healers in Uganda.

He hailed Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II for accommodating them for the 13 years they spent at the Jubilee Park, Kampala.

Musasizi said the council had plans to build modern structures in order to operate in a stable environment.
He said their main problem was wrangles among the traditional healers.

“We are not united. There are certain factions which do not recognise our work and they have been blackmailing this association,” he said.

He accused Uganda Neddagala lyaayo, a rival association headed by Ssalongo Ben Ggulu, for calling them a fake organisation with no mandate to oversee the activities of traditional healers in Uganda.

Musasizi urged the Government to speed up the traditional medicine bill, saying it would streamline the activities of healers in Uganda.
