Ugandan Health Minister goes Undercover to Catch Corrupt Health Workers | WATCH



The Ugandan State Minister of Health for General Duties Sarah Opendi went undercover to catch corrupt health workers in the country.

The minister, dressed in a hijab, visited a hospital on a motorcycle.

There, a nurse told her she had to pay 5,000 shillings to take a blood sugar test.

The minister said she had heard health workers were demanding a bribe to carry out free treatment. She said: “I received many complaints that the staff at the hospital was extorting money from patients.”

After paying, the minister called policemen to arrest the health workers who solicited for a bribe from her.

    Meanwhile our own government adorned Oscar de larenta casually to receive them,while the Uganda government had no weaves on her hair let alone designers outfit.
    Our mediocre ministers from Buharis heaven are the worst set in recent history.
    They are busy prostrating for Buhari , his friends and family.
    Up till now no cabinet reshuffle. Tueh

    Bellanaija, it’s a Niqab, not a Hijab. A hijab covers just your neck and parts of your shoulders.
    But she’s smart. I wish our ministers would put this much effort into their work

    A naija minister will now go undercover on a bike to catch who? For doing what? ? even to go and piss sef is impossible without a bulletproof car and police orderlies surrounding them. Our political elites are too scared to mix with the people they swore to serve, they are too busy lobbying for the next available political slot to care about the decay in the system.
