We cant be bribed: Local leaders refuse Govt Matresses from the president’s office

Local leaders who had received mattresses that were delivered from the Office of the President in Namutumba District on May 1 refused to take them

The 50 mattresses were delivered from the Office of the President as part of activities held to mark the International Labour Day celebrations.

Health workers say the mattresses cannot be used on hospital beds because they are of poor quality.

“We recommend that they are used in health centres by caregivers and not patients,” Dr Allan Lubite, the in-charge of Nsinze Health Centre IV, said.

Mr Patrick Mutyaba, the vice chairperson of Namutumba, said the district will not take back the mattresses to Kampala, but they will be used by caregivers as guided by health experts.
