The interdiction came from Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Alfred Malinga on September 7, citing allegations of absenteeism and poor service delivery. This led to unnecessary referrals to Kawempe National Referral Hospital.
According to Mr. Malinga, Dr. Lukanga, upon interdiction, refused to hand over the office. He was accused of taking the ultrasound scan keys, rendering the essential machine unusable.
The CAO also claimed Dr. Lukanga ran away with audit files and locked his office.
Mr. Malinga expressed his frustration, stating, “I have already written to the District Police Commander of Wakiso to arrest him and bring him to this health facility so he hands over forcefully.” He characterized Dr. Lukanga as indisciplined and accused him of mismanagement of funds.
Dr. Lukanga, however, denied all allegations, calling them baseless and malicious. He questioned the logic of locking a government-owned scan, emphasizing that he had been away for two months.
This situation follows a whistleblower’s letter circulating on social media on November 6. This letter claims that four mothers died in three weeks at Wakiso Health Centre IV. It also attributed it to Mr. Malinga’s interdiction of the doctor.
