Progress Report on Problem-Solving - Ugandacase
Registered on 17 March 2014 by the CRMU, the complaint was submitted by a family who alleged that the Kawempe Health Center being rehabilitated and transformed into a Referral Hospital with Bank financing is a property that belonged to their father, the late Dr. Sembeguya. The prominent physician acquired the property (Plot 73) in 1948 and built his home and subsequently a private clinic on the land in 1954. He is alleged to have been abducted and killed in 1973, presumably by the Government, and the clinic was confiscated in 1974 and handed to Kampala City Council, now the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA). According to the Requestors, it is Dr. Sembeguya’s clinic that was turned into what is known today as the Kawempe Health Center.
