Nurses alleged Mulago officials want to turn Queen Elizabeth TOLL tower into a business centre.


“We are mistreated and abused which affects our performance at work. We have even told our children never to take up nursing as a career in their future because of the suffering we have gone through at Mulago,” said Naafa.
