  1. They first said it was malaria!! Now it is Pneumonia, um um!!!. Something is not adding up.Stop with the speculation and let Mao have his privacy. I beseech all people of good will to pray for his quick recovery regardless of what is ailing him.

  2. Forget about the rumours but it is not right that there is no treatment for pneumonia. What a shame! We have raised opinions regarding failure of healthcare in Uganda on death ears. It does not portray us incapable but as non existence in healthcare service and delivery. Let us built hospitals rather than shopping malls. Uganda is in urgent need of new hospitals and we are overdue. By now we should have health services in 15-30 miles for local people access

    1. Let government build hospitals while the private sector builds shopping malls; we need both. The hospitals will address the health care problem while the shopping malls will help tackle some of the unemployment. Don’t you think so?

      1. I agree we need shopping malls but you cannot go to the malls when you are dead!
