The Kasese Resident district commissioner Lt. Joe Walusimbi has strongly warned health workers against selling COVID-19 Vaccine or extorting money from the public in exchange for the vaccine.
The RDC said he had received information how health workers in different government health facilities were charging residents who were voluntarily going for AstraZeneca vaccine a tune of 40,000 shillings.
The Vaccination is aimed at protecting Ugandans against contracting the corona virus disease.
Walusimbi says that his office is investigating some cases and soon culprits would be apprehended. The civil servant also challenged the people of Kasese to work closely with their elected leaders irrespective of their political affiliations if they must attain service delivery.
Walusimbe was this evening addressing thousands of mourners who had gathered at UBC-Ngeya Radio to pay their last respect to the fallen Kasese based journalist Ronald Kule aka Ronnie Diamonds.
Kule who died in wee hours of today was described by many as a promising Journalist who had a passion for his profession.
Giving his commiseration message, James Thembo the station manager, told the mourners that Kule’s demise had left a gap too wide to fill at the station. The deceased radio personality had been hosting the Lovline show and the Sunday Request Hour among other station duties.
