The Territorial Police in Pallisa, has in custody, a one Dr. Naaya Jesse, a Medical Doctor at Pallisa; on allegations of corruption and abuse of office, after he demanded Ugx 200,000/=, to perform an operation on an expectant mother, who had failed to deliver normally. Her husband failed to raise the money, and reported the matter to the RDC Pallisa, who acted swiftly and ordered for the arrest of the suspect

As you are all aware, Doctors and Medical Practitioners have an obligation to perform their duties in an ethical and very professional manner, but as alleged, the suspect callously extorted money from an expectant mother, whose life and that of her unborn child, were a priority.

The charges, therefore, demonstrate our continued commitment to stemming acts of corruption, bribery and extortion out of our hospitals. As alleged, our health care system that serves vulnerable population, has been undermined by such individuals.

Going forward, we will continue to partner with all victimised and vulnerable persons, and other stakeholders, to vigorously pursue those who use government health care programs for personal gains. We also want to thank and commend the RDC Pallisa, the DPC, the Local Government, District Health Staff, the courageous victim and her husband, and everyone else who put their efforts in this exceptional work.
