Members of parliament on the central region COVID-19 task force have faulted the government for the poor management of the pandemic.
Last week officials from the ministry of health led by minister Jane Ruth Aceng and the permanent secretary Dr Diana Atwine appeared before the task force and gave the state of the country’s pandemic management.
However, on their tour which started on Friday at the Central region referral hospitals Mityana, Mubende and Kirundu MPs established that the ministry gave falsehoods.
Speaking to KFM, one of the task force members, Kyotera district Woman MP Rose Fortunate Nantongo said that hospitals don’t have ICU beds and those with new beds have not been fully installed.
She said that most health workers have not been paid their risk allowances among other issues arising.
The Central region parliamentary COVID-19 task force is chaired by Dr Micheal Bukenya.
