Govt Should Sort The Mess In Mulago: The Place Stinks

Yesterday, I confirmed what I have always heard about Mulago Hospital. It was my first time to step there, but what I found was quite sickening: the place looked so awful. As I walked around, I bumped into
a rubbish area; my heart is even about to pop out as I type this as the memory of it is just nauseating.

Spills of blood, used cotton and used syringes litter the place, oh, how stinked! Then I entered some building, not sure if it’s the new Mulago, in the tunnel that led me to Block 4C oh my God; the place is terribly smelly!
