- In 2019 Parliament approved 13 trillion shillings loan for the private investor to construct this hospital.
- The MPs and minister of the health tried to check on the progress they were bounced at the gate by the security operatives.
Kazo county MP Dan Kimosho demand that the ministry of health bring a status report to Parliament on the progress of Lubowa Specialized Hospital so that the country can know .
The MP also needs the ministry of finance to also present a report on the absorption of the loan and how it is performing in terms of the country's target to have this hospital.
In 2019 Parliament approved 13 trillion shillings loan for the private investor to construct this hospital but some MPs mainly from the opposition questioned the procurement process for the investor and why government was using public funds to finance a private enterprise.
The MP now says that the hope for the country to have specialized health services is premised on Lubowa hospital yet the construction has stalled at the foundation stage.
Kimosho says the last time the MPs and minister of the health tried to check on the progress they were bounced at the gate by the security operatives.
The specialized hospital is being constructed under a joint partnership between Finasi and Roko construction limited and when completed it will focus on the treatment of Non communicable diseases that have been forcing Ugandans to seek treatment abroad.
