Opposition Forum for Democratic change FDC has tasked government and ministry of health to explain to the public the scarcity of septrin in the health centres which has led to the death of so many HIV/AIDs affected person.
It should be noted that the ministry of health had promised to make septrin available in health centres this July but to date this has not come true.
It’s estimated that 1.3 million Ugandans are living with HIV/AIDS and expectant mothers in the blackout.
Addressing a news conference at the party headquarters in najjankumbi the party president Eng Patrick Amuriat oboi questioned why government spends huge sums of money on unserious issues as opposed to the priorities like putting medicine in all the health centres.
On the non priorities Amuriat cited the new plans to accord every Member of parliament with snippers and a armoured double cabin car which he described as a sign of a failed government thus  appealing to legislators to reject the offer since doing the opposite will trigger a wrong button of the public.
He rather encouraged MPs to reexamine themselves as to why they seem to be a target of insecurity rather than selfishly thinking of their security as opposed to that of the entire country since nobody is safe.
