In February, four people were arrested over an alleged Shs20.5b fraud at Mulago Hospital.
This followed an audit report from the State House Health Monitoring Unit which allegedly unearthed improper accounting of funds at the hospital, forgery of accounting details by service providers of the hospital.
It also cited embezzlement and gross misuse of office by certain big wigs at the hospital.
The State House Health Monitoring Unit was established by President Yoweri Museveni in August 2009 in response to the persistent public outcry on the poor medicines and health services delivery in the country.
