MEMBERS of parliament on the social services committee on Tuesday disagreed on whether the ministry of health should use dichlorodipheny trichloroethane (DDT) to fight against malaria.

They were considering the budget estimates for the Ministry of Health for the next financial year vowing to turn down Ken Lukyamuzi’s (Lubaga south) motion to censure the health minister Jim Muhwezi if he went ahead to use DDT to spray mosquitoes.

Dr Herbert Lwanga (Bukoto south) disapproved Lukyamuzi when he said the ban on DDT had been lifted.
“I get confused when Hon. Ken opposes the minister to use DDT.
Countries like Cuba and Argentina used DDT to get rid off malaria,” he said.
