The Health Ministry has asked power distributor UMEME to consider connecting all Regional Referral hospitals on stable power lines to ensure they don’t experience outages.
This follows two power outages at Naguru Hospital last week. The first outage occurred on December 31st, 2018 around 9:00 pm leaving the hospital in total darkness for two hours. The outage also affected areas of Naguru, Bukoto and Ntinda.
UMEME Media Manager, Stephen Illungole, says the electricity company is working towards making sure that all major hospitals are on direct electricity lines.
