I played this scenario out. International Hospital Kampala (IHK) owned by you know who, insisted on sh. 5 million to attend to our sister Harriet (RIP), in cash. I would normally have thought that every idiot and imbecile in Uganda can take Dr. Kizza Besigye' s word that the money will be paid. Nedda, apparently you cannot even rely on a name of a person who cannot even go buying his own food because too many Ugandans follow him around and cause "disturbance". So in comes in Martha Leah. I have just gotten malaria. Forget about Mulago, that place is also a death trap. I head to IHK. Do I have cash to pay to get admitted? Nope. But I have travel insurance via my employer. Well, can your employer wire us cash immediately. Employer is in North America and it is night over there and besides such an amount has to be authorized. Employer gets wind of me near death and tries to fly me out. Whoa.. even if they can charter the entire airline (Uganda Airlines), there are no planes. The clock is ticking, I am on my death bed. My organs are shutting off. I am stuck in a country that STEALS all the tax payer money and donor aid intended for our health care. I am also stuck in a country which has no airline. AND I am stuck on bad roads, flooding streets in Kampala if it rains and to boot, some 3-4hrs to Entebbe (if the company managed to get a charter air ambulance to fly me out).
IF YOU ARE NOT ANGRY, YOU ARE DEFINITELY NOT PAYING ATTENTION. Please now talk to me about the great development in Uganda. I listen. Thanks.
