THE Democratic party (DP) Presidential candidate John Ssebaana Kizito has blasted health minister Maj. Gen. Jim Muhwezi over what he called appaling health services in the country.
â€œI know Muhwezi is from here, tell him that all health units have no drugs,â€ said Ssebaana, during a rally in Rukungiri district on Wednesday.
Ssebaana addressed rallies in Buhunga, Kebisoni, Buyanja and Kagunga before he addressed a main rally at Rukungiri stadium.
He was welcomed by bodaboda cyclists and a huge crowd, some of whom were flashing the two-finger symbol for the Forum for Democratic Change party.
Ssebaana said he would woo Ugandan doctors who work abroad to come back.
â€œItâ€™s a pity that when a government official is ill, he goes abroad for treatment. I will make sure our hospitals have the necessary equipment. I will pay health workers attractive salaries to encourage those abroad to come back,â€ he said.
