diagnosis geneva;”> According to the deputy Inspector of the National council for traditional healers and herbalists association Swaibu Kyeyune, the crackdown followed reports that traditional healers in the district had taken advantage of unsuspecting members of the public and exploit them.

“They have been operating illegal clinics and mobile laboratories,” noted the Chairman traditional healers and herbalists association Kabale district Mugisha Charles.

The Kabale district RDC Moses Mathew Erayu noted that two workers had been apprehended with forged academic documents.

“They were claiming to be laboratory technicians with documents from Chemiquip training school in Ishaka Bushenyi district,” explained the RDC.

Erayu therefore appealed to the public to be cautious with their health while getting services from traditional herbalists.

Meanwhile the Kabale referral hospital director Dr.Praxid Nahayo has decried lack of enough medical staff at the hospital that has hindered work at the referral hospital.

In interview with Chimpreports, Nahayo noted that the hospital has only one senior medical consultant, three medical officers plus one pharmacist and dispenser each.

“This has made most of the patients we receive to be referred to other hospitals like Mulago and Mbarara because we cannot get enough doctors and nurses here to attend to attend to them,” explained Nahayo.

The doctor therefore called upon government to come to their rescue and provide more staff to the hospital.

However the Kabale district RDC Moses Mathew Erayu attributed the current shortage of staff to poor accommodation at the hospital.

”It is difficult to attract doctors to come and work with the hospital because of poor accommodation at the hospital,” explained the RDC.
