Dr. Byarugaba Baterana, the Executive Director Mulago National Referral Hospital was today arrested by the State House Health Monitoring Unit (HMU).
Upon arrest, Dr Byarugaba was driven to the HMU offices in Nakasero in Kampala to record statements on various concerns about the hospital management.
Dr. Warren Namara, the director of the HMU, confirmed Baterana’s arrest saying the hospital has been under their radar for the last couple of months.
“We assisted him to come to our office in order to help us with investigations of Mulago National Referral Hospital since he is the accounting officer,” said Namara.
He said that during their investigations, they had got queries on a number of things.
“We got queries on plant, machinery, financial and human resources, general management, among others. So we are asking him [Baterana] to assist us in understanding a few of those things,” added Namara.
