The case was adjourned to February 20, 2014 for hearing.

It is alleged that Tamale caused the death of a one Mercy Ayiru, a financial administrator and a resident of Ntinda while undergoing an operation to remove fibroids at his Fertility Centre formerly known as the Kampala Gynecology & Fertility Centre in Bukoto, a Kampala suburb.

The operation was carried out by Dr. Rafique Parker, a visiting doctor from Kenya who was not registered with the council.

He earlier on, in 2011, appeared before the Uganda Medical and Dental Practitioners Council which convicted him over charges of neglect, failure to supervise an anesthetist, Christopher Kirunda, which led to Ayiru’s death.

He admitted to having been responsible for the death of Ayiru and asked for an out of court settlement.

However, this did not stop the council from going on with its work.

Later on, in 2012, he was found him guilty of professional negligence that led to the death of a patient.

Dr. Sali is the Founder, Director and Resident Doctor at the Women’s Hospital International and Fertility Centre.

He is an Obstetrician and gynecologist having worked in this specialty in several hospitals in the UK including Women’s Hospital Nottingham (1977 to 1979), Torbay General Hospital (1981 to 1982), Hereford County Royal Hospital (1982 to 1983), Royal Hospital – Derbyshire (1983 to 1985) and in the Kuwait Oil Company Hospital (1986 to 2004).
