Parliament on Tuesday observed a moment of silence for the late Iganga Woman NRM MP Grace Kaudha Hailat, 29, who was laid to rest last Sunday.
Kaudha succumbed on Friday 7, July to pregnancy complications after being rushed to Case Clinic in and later transferred to Mulago Referral Hospital (Kawempe Extension) where she was pronounced dead.
It’s reported that the lawmaker didn’t find any gynecologist on duty at Case Clinic.
The Speaker, Rebecca Kadaga today regretted the “unfortunate death” of one of their own.
The speaker said she was astounded to hear that the late Kaudha used to go to a small clinic in Kitintale for her treatment.
“This was unfortunate; we need to review how mothers are managed during pregnancy. I think I am going to take interest in understanding who are the medical providers for the Members of Parliament,” Kadaga said.
She vowed to take bigger interest in the health matters of MPs and if necessary she will direct through the parliamentary commission about medical facilitation of members.
“I call upon the ministry of Health to ensure that all the facilities (private and public) are sufficiently monitored to ensure that they have capacity to handle medical emergencies.”
The speaker revealed that members will tomorrow take off some time and pay tribute to the fallen MP.
