“We received information from their boss one Malik, that the two get expired drugs change labels and expiry dates of the drugs and later sell them to patients; we suspect that they have been doing this illegal act for almost two years,” Ssenkumbi said.

Apparently, the two could call their boss informing him that they have ran out of stock, but on sending them money to restock, they would go and pick the expired drugs, as new stock.

Malik started monitoring the two employees after clients started complaining about the medicine bought at this pharmacy and their various branches that instead of the drugs making them better, they just worsened the patients’ condition.

They were arrested at their residence at Kampala road, where they were found with Shs 47 million, money they confessed to have got from selling expired drugs.


Meanwhile, the two are being held at Central Police Station Kampala and investigations are still going on to locate their accomplices in the act.

“We shall very soon take the two in courts of law to face charges of forgery and dispensing illegal drugs for public consumption,” Ssenkumbi said.
