The first victim who was a health worker who died of the COVID 19 virus barely a week ago in Nimiswidwa district has been reburied.
This came after the locals through their area woman of Namisdwa district MP Hon. Namukhula grace told the house that the late was buried poorly and the dogs had started eating the remains of the late.
In this phone we got, a team was sent in to reburial the late in order to stop any further spread of the disease,
But surprisingly in this video we see the burial team asking the for tools like hoes to help them in the process and the fear is after using these tools the locals will have to use them for digging in their farms, and even the area had some locals and even kids around the burial place. When you see closely the team used old iron sheets and some fibres to cover the dead body. All what is done is not according to the SOP of health and it seems there was no single coin was allocated for the burial of this victim.
However the RDC of Namisdwa district mr Wamotoo Moses denied allegations that the victim was poorly buried as the MP put it last night in parliament , but rather said that the soils in Bugisu mostly in this Rainey season are not firm and so when it over rannied the grave got some cracks on the sides which he that health team came and put the grave right.
He added on no hon. woman map wants to get political mileage from the death of the lady otherwise there is nothing to worry and no dogs have eaten any dead body as the MP alleged in her speech.
The RDC Wamotoo Moses also confirmed that there is another young man aged 27 called Munyeresi Martin who collapsed and died this morning in the district but not yet confirmed if he died of COVID 19 virus, and that the blood samples have been taken to Kampala for the test.
Namisdwa district is one of the district on the border with Kenya in the east of Uganda, and its separated by small rivers which the locals use to cross to both in Uganda and Kenya so easily, this seen as we saw in some village were the locals use ropes to cross on both countries, and one the leaders in this village told us that, the place is poorly managed as there at times no security people to protect the place from people crossing.
