The Forum for Democratic Change’s (FDC) Presidential Flag bearer Patrick Oboi Amuriat aka POA has decried the low level of service delivery in Kanungu district.
While campaigning in the district on Monday, Amuriat expressed concern over the current state of among others Kambuga Hospital.
He told residents of Muhokya village in Kambuga Sub-County that Kambuga H/C, which was a center of excellence during Dr. Milton Obote’s government was now nearly in ruins.
“When you went to the hospital and you were admitted, everything was the responsibility of Government including the dressing, the bed sheets and the food you took. There was nothing like attendants going to the hospital to prepare food because this was provided for by the Government,” he recalled.
“The services were so good to the extent that sometimes people got better but did not want to go their villages. They would say that they are very sick because they wanted to continue enjoying the company of the hospital,” he said.
Whereas he was unable to visit the health facility, he said from a distance it looked like a “dead hospital”.
Amuriat further pointed out that the poor road network in the area cannot enable patients to be rushed to hospital in time.
Commenting on the same matter in Kanungu town, FDCs National Field Coordinator Roland Kaginda Mugume advised Kanungu residents to vote wisely on January 14, 2020 lest they endure the same challenges.
Kaginda warned those present that if they don’t ditch the National Resistance Movement (NRM), there is no end in sight to their challenges.
However, the party was not able to hold its grand rally in Rukungiri Municipality due to unknown reasons.
Amuriat is expected to traverse the districts of Ntungamo, Rwampara and Mbarara tomorrow December 1, 2020 before heading to Sheema, Bushenyi and Mitooma the following day.
