Dr. Brian Twinamatsiko, the Rubanda district director of health services (DHO) said that the theatre at Hamurwa H/C IV remains ill-equipped and has gone four years without conducting a single operation. It has no electricity cannot be run on a generator since it gets only Shs. 800,000 every quarter from government.
