Nambaziira, died early this month as a result of childbirth-related uncontrolled bleeding. She had undergone a cesarean birth a week earlier but later developed postnatal complications prompting a series of other surgeries.
Sheila Kawamara Mishambi, the executive director of EASSI says that Nambaziira’s case was mismanaged, and they intend to hold all involved parties liable for her death.
“We’re planning to sue whoever is responsible. If its the hospital, let the hospital be sued if people can be willing to tell us where the problem was. If they can be willing to testify in court, then we organise them. That is the protest. We’re planning if need be, to sue the governments that have failed to protect the lives of mothers because this is paramount. In case a mother dies, there’s someone responsible, let it not just be a recorded statement that a woman died.” Kawamara said.
Nambaziira was the communications and networking officer at EASSI at the time of her death.
IHK reveals that the former TV star was attended to by some of its best including; Gynaecologists, intensivists and a Urologist at the time of her readmission and that a report was submitted to the ministry of health regarding the incident.
