Apparently, she said this happened because of the repeated flooding by river Nyamwamba.
The minister happened to be responding to matters of National importance raised by Kasese Municipality MP Ferigo Kambale.
Kambale said the Permanent Secretary in the ministry announced the withdrawal of the credit line for medical supplies to the hospital last year.
He also noted that the closure of the Kilembe Mines hospital has affected over half a million residents in Kasese Municipality.
“Madam speaker, we are shocked as leaders of Kasese because all the women who give birth from all those mountains are served by this hospital. Madam Speaker, the matter is becoming worse,” Kambaale said.
He further revealed that the area minister, Hon. Kabyanga Godfrey communicated to him about the matter. He said the minister informed him that the matter is slowly turning into an issue of security concern.
In 2020, the hospital suffered waves of flash floods after rivers Nyamwamba, Mubuku, Nyamughasana and Lubhiliha burst their banks.
