Controversial city lawyer, Male Mabirizi is going through tough times after losing his father Mutumba Mabirizi aged 82, two sisters Fatumah and Shamsa to the deadly COVID-19 in a space of just three days.
According to Mabirizi, his two sisters succumbed to COVID-19 due to shortage of oxygen in hospitals.
“After burying my elder sister Fatumah on Tuesday June 15, we have done it again today, Friday, June 18 to my younger sister Shamsa. This is due to Museveni’s rogue 35-year rule which allowed COVID-19 to ravage us because of stealing COVID-19 money and a failed health system,” said Mabirizi in a tweet.
The past weeks have seen the health system experience oxygen crisis hence resulting into exorbitant charges with some facilities demanding patients to pay as high as Shs5 million.
On Friday, the ministry of health started installation of another oxygen plan at Mulago Hospital as it also prepares to set up other plants at all regional referral hospitals across the country.
