Rukunjiri Ambulance Driver On The Spot for Misusing Government Vehicle

The MOH Senior Public Relations officer Emmanuel Ainebyona has revealed that disciplinary action will be taken against an ambulance driver.

A random citizen spotted the Rukunjiri ambulance driver in a picture loading pineapples in the vehicle’s cabin.

The MOH released a statement on Thursday evening saying a photograph making rounds on social media drew their attention. This photograph shows a man loading pineapples into the cabin of an Ambulance registration number UG 3797M.

Ainebyona said the Ministry has taken a keen interest in the matter and immediately carried out investigations. He also revealed that this ambulance is under the management of Rukunjiri District local government.

Apparently, the vehicle had taken a patient to Ntungamo and on return, the driver loaded the pineapples as seen in the picture.

Ainebyona said that such behavior is the reason why the government has taken on the centralization of the Ambulance management into a National Ambulance service.

The Ministry of Health has consequently asked the district to take action on the driver whose identity remained a mystery to the public.

According to Ainebyona, they are taking all measures to bring the culprits to book. Furthermore, they also want to ensure that they stop this abuse once and for all.

Ainebyona also thanked the vigilant public that captured this abuse of the ambulance in question and circulated it. This also enabled the ministry to take disciplinary action.

[dropcap]P[/dropcap]resident Yoweri Museveni is reportedly disturbed by the high number of cases of land grabbing involving officials from the State House and the Office of the President. This was revealed on Friday by Ms Phiona Barungi, the State House Special Assistant on General Duties while meeting land-grabbing victims in Luwero district. Barungi said the president had been lately overwhelmed by complaints about State House officials tormenting scores of people, especially in central Uganda. “There’s just too many complaints about State House employees,” she said. “We have become a big problem, even the president himself, who gave us these jobs is concerned… He does not know what to do.” “He sent us to serve the people but we are now serving our stomachs. It has gotten to a point where almost every state house official is involved in a land wrangle somewhere.” In a meeting held in Zirobwe village in Bukyimu sub-county in Bamunakika, Barungi said her office was being bombarded daily by helpless people. Some of these are facing death threats from powerful people. “Yesterday I had just landed from Turkey, I even was feeling sick. I found a man at the airport waiting for me,” Barungi told the meeting. “He told me that a man connected to Gen Muhoozi Kairerugaba was hunting him to kill him and take his land. When I asked around, it turned out that this man has no connection to Gen Muhoozi. He is just a serial land grabber.” In the meeting, the residents singled out a number of people who have been harassing them. These also went ahead destroying their crop gardens, and metting out all manner of violence to force them out of their land. The Minister of Lands Hon Sam Mayanja during the meeting ordered an immediate arrest of two of these land grabbers. They include Mary Babirye and Rasmus Kagaba.
