Residents like Sam Wekoye and Stephen Wepukhulu; all residents of Wangutusi cell claim they were tipped that the District leaders wanted to sell off the anesthesia machine, something which is improper.

 

The residents say that the machine has been helping expectant mothers and newly born babies with breathing complications. The residents marched to the Manafa District offices protesting the planned sale.

 

But Ephraim Nakhokho the Manafwa district health officer has dismissed allegations of a planned sale of the anesthesia machine. Nakhokho says Bubulo Health Centre has two anesthesia machines and a request was made by health ministry to have one machine extended to Namatala Health Centre IV in Industrial City Division in Mbale City.
