Case Clinic Defends Self on Death of Chief Magistrate

Case Clinic Kampala has filed its defense before High Court after being accused of having a hand in the death of former Kiboga Chief Magistrate Francis Kobusheshe.

But Case Clinic denies ever operating magistrate Kobusheshe. The hospital also apportioned blame to the Judiciary, the employers of the deceased who never responded to a recommendation to immediately fly it’s employee out of the country for treatment as his medical condition could not be managed by Ugandan medical practitioners.

Case Clinic explains that on the 24th/December 2015, it wrote to the Judicial Service Commission to immediately seek further expertise abroad for Kobusheshe but it did not receive a reply until he was pronounced dead on the 29th/December 2016 due to brain injuries.
